Lunera: Company's Plug-and-Play LED Helen Lamp Lowers Energy Cost at Resort Spa



Dec. 15, 2015 — Nestled at the base of the majestic Sierra Nevada mountains, the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa is a world-class resort destination. The facility called upon Lunera to bring quality LED lighting to the resort to save on energy and maintenance costs.

The four-star resort is near the Reno-Sparks Convention Center, Washoe County Golf Course, and Nevada Museum of Art. 

“We chose the Helen Lamp because of the large energy and maintenance savings it would deliver to our bottom line. Installation cost and disruption was minimized by the plug-and-play technology of the lamps and the overall lighting effect is very pleasant," said Jimmie Oaks, facility director.

The near-daylight illumination of Lunera’s Helen Lamp was an ideal solution to directly replace the 3,000 CFLs used in the resort’s spacious ballroom. The plug-and-play feature of the lamp, made possible by Lunera’s BallastLED technology, lowered installation cost and minimized installation disruption. Maintenance costs were virtually eliminated, thanks to the lamp’s long lifetime.

By replacing the existing 35-watt CFLs with Lunera’s 13-watt Helen Lamps, the facility realized savings of $58,657 annually in energy costs. Regional utility company rebates reduced the upfront cost of installing the Helen Lamps, creating a payback period of less than a year.

The Helen Lamp is a plug-and-play LED replacement for CFL downlights with four-pin G24q-series (electronic ballast) sockets or two-pin G24d-series (magnetic ballast) sockets. Simply choose the horizontal or vertical configuration, plug it in like any CFL lamp, and enjoy the superior LED light quality and energy savings. There’s no need to bypass the CFL ballast.

The lamp's long lifespan is rated at 50,000 hours, five times longer than CFLs, and is supported by a five-year warranty.
