Seattle City Light has been selected for exemplary recognition as a Supporter of Pacific Northwest National Lab’s Integrated Lighting Campaign (ILC)! The ILC is a program within the US Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy that helps facility owners and managers take advantage of networked lighting control and integrated lighting system solutions. City Light has been a Supporter of ILC since July 2020.

The ILC is recognizing City Light as exemplary for our efforts to catalyze the adoption of advanced sensors and controls in lighting, the integration of lighting with other building systems, and our contributions to the ILC through program participation as well as the many resources and educational material generated by City Light’s Customer Energy Solutions and our Lighting Design Lab. For example, we recently developed a Network Lighting Control Toolkit to help customers learn more about this technology. City Light’s Commercial Retrofit Lighting incentive program supports the ILC’s mission by offering a bonus incentive for networked lighting controls of $50 per controlled fixture. Projects that have taken advantage of City Light’s bonus incentives have saved an estimated 2.7 million kWh of energy!

“The Lighting Design Lab’s mission is to leverage public-private partnerships to equitably develop the tools, resources, and learning platforms necessary to support the adoption of emerging technologies and design best practices,” says Armando Berdiel, Technical Development Supervisor at City Light’s Lighting Design Lab. “The Integrated Lighting Campaign’s main objective parallels the Lighting Design Lab’s goal to support the adoption of connected lighting integrated with other building systems. As the Lighting Design Lab develops education, awareness, tools and resources on connected lighting and other emerging building technologies, we promote both the ILC’s values and our own. It is a great partnership for us to have and great to be recognized for it.”

The recipients of ILC’s exemplary recognition were announced at the Illuminating Engineering Society’s 2021 Annual Conference on Aug. 9, and the ILC will host a webinar on Sept. 2 to highlight the success of their recognized partners.
