November 30,2012 – The parking Lot at the Hilton Concord, Concord, CA has been transformed into an Energy Saving landscape through the installation of thirty-eight (38) LED CREE motion sensor fixtures. Chuck Smith CEO, Hotel Sustainability Solutions, Inc. announces the recent implementation and wishes to thank Debbie Daniels of Associated Lighting Representative (ALR) and Tony Reyes of Reyes Electric who assisted greatly in executing the program.
HSSI is contracted to develop and implement a sustainability prototype for Interstate Hotels & Resorts Worldwide. The LED retrofit replaced 400 Watt mercury vapor lighting with 204 Watt CREE LED and a step down power to 143 Watts in inactive periods. The motion sensors immediately return to full power with any motion within the fixtures coverage area. “The reduced energy will be a major contributor to the Hilton Concord’s overall energy saving objectives”, Smith said. Guests and employees along with management are very pleased with the results. The system has added to an enhanced guest experience and has contributed to upgrading security within the parking and travel lane areas. Smith also stated that the CRI of 90+, the true white light and the illumines output has yielded a much greater end result than expected.
Hilton Concord is the “Sustainability Flagship” for Interstate and to date 33 sustainability initiatives have been implemented by HSSI on behalf of ownership, Interstate Hotels & Resorts Worldwide at the Hilton Concord, Concord, CA . The Hilton Concord has established itself as an industry Leader in Sustainability through the leadership of Jack Hlavac, General Manager.
