Lava Beds

Lava Beds
California, USA - The Lava Beds National Monument is located in northern California’s Siskyou mountains. The 47,000 acres of park lands include lava tube caves, rugged desert terrain and historical sites. The park attracts nearly 100,000 visitors each year.

The Challenge
The project involved bringing the administration facilities of the park up-to-date. The building was still using older T12 fluorescent ballasts, which were replaced with T8s. A more efficient occupancy sensing technology was sought, as the simple motion detecting technology previously installed was becoming outdated.

The Solution
To increase the energy efficiency of the park administration facilities, Leviton LevNet RF products were selected. LevNet RF wireless technologies require no batteries and no wiring, making them a maintenance-free and environmentally friendly choice. Wireless occupancy sensors were installed into common areas, offices and the restroom, which keep lights off when the spaces are unoccupied.

The Results
The project goal was to reduce energy use by 30%, but was exceeded by reaching savings of 40%. That equated to 65,000 kWh of electricity savings and a $6,400 annual energy cost reduction.
