The Opportunity

  • GEICO's facilities manager, Young Park, has long had an interest in energy efficiency and how it applies to his two primary job functions: maintaining GEICO’s 600,000-square-foot corporate headquarters and keeping the 3,000-plus associates who work there comfortable
  • The company was mindful of its energy use, carbon footprint, and employees’ well-being in deciding to update an outdated lighting system throughout their corporate headquarters

The Upgrades

  • Replaced 7,000 fluorescent lamps with high-efficiency LED bulbs throughout their campus—in the building’s communal spaces, in the hallways that connect the different departments, and throughout the grounds and parking lots

The Benefits

  • Incentives from Pepco’s Prescriptive Lighting Program
  • Projected energy savings of 1,330,560 kilowatt-hours per year
  • Estimated annual cost savings of $159,668
  • Improved maintenance efficiency—because LED bulbs last longer than traditional lamps, staff are free to work on other projects rather than making frequent bulb replacements
  • Reduced greenhouse gas emissions—equivalent to passenger vehicles driving 2,427,023 fewer miles
  • Satisfied employees, who said the LED lighting made their jobs easier
