PSE&G is New Jersey’s largest combined electric and gas utility. They offer their clients a complete Dusk to Dawn Outdoor Lighting Program, including a variety of decorative, security, roadway and area lighting. They also offer floodlighting solutions for building facades, storefronts, area lighting and security. This ever-growing niche, has taken shape in the many municipalities within PSE&G’s service territory.
The Challenges (the opportunity)
PSE&G has been installing decorative street lighting as part of municipal streetscape projects throughout the state of New Jersey. In many cases, older standard lighting is replaced with new decorative lighting in response to their clients’ desire for urban and streetscape renewal. The older, “industrial looking” floodlights don’t necessarily fit the décor of the newly installed poles, nor are they the most energy efficient.
PSE&G needed a line of floodlights that would be responsive to their clients’ desire to be both environmentally sustainable and fiscally responsible. Energy efficiency, longer asset life and lower overall maintenance cost needed to be combined within a progressive-style floodlight offering, able to complement the newer decorative lights and poles.
After thorough evaluation and testing, PSE&G decided to offer the Philips FX1 LED floodlight. This versatile LED floodlight works as a decorative and/or commercial floodlight solution which can be used in a variety of applications. The Philips FX1 LED floodlight consumes half the energy of conventional floodlights, lasts nearly five times longer (minimizing maintenance costs) and contains 0% mercury.
According the PSE&G Manager – Large Customer Support Green Solutions for Customers, Michelle Gonzalez, this is the perfect opportunity for PSE&G to offer LED to their customers. The Philips FX1 LED Floodlight fits PSE&G’s need for a versatile unit that can replace older floodlights and be immediately offered to their customers who need illumination for their facades, storefronts, parking areas, playgrounds, etc.
Ms. Gonzalez also mentioned the importance of moving into newer, solid state technology, which she believes is the direction all lighting is heading. PSE&G is thrilled that this is the door that they can enter to make their offering of LED a reality.
