This parking garage had previously used metal halide lights. This parking garage is the largest LED project on campus but there are others, particularly for outdoor lighting. During FY12 no further LED projects were performed while at least three LED projects were performed in FY13, and statistics associated with these latest three projects are now counted in this section.
