Electrical Designer, Mike LaHey displays a new LED fixture that will replace the overhead lights on the canopy above Alumni Hall's main entrance.

LED technology provides better light quality and uses only a quarter of the energy when compared to incandescent counter-parts. The LED also lives about six times longer than current CFL technology and is 100% recyclable - ie: no mercury.

Mike has been adding LED lights to a number of renovations over the past year or so and estimates that seven buildings are currently sporting the new technology.

Mike's efforts were featured in PPD News (page 5): www.uwo.ca/ppd/documentation/ppdnews_sept07_webversion.pdf
