Seeking Warehouse Sites for Upcoming Projects
By Keith Toomey

The Lighting Research Center is seeking volunteers to host a warehouse demonstration project in 2006, as well as multiple warehouse sites to participate in a survey to allow the LRC to document the lighting in the facilities.

Wanted: Warehouse in New York State that needs new lighting

Does your company have a warehouse in New York State? Are you interested in updating some of your HID lighting? Are you planning to replace the warehouse lighting soon? Are you willing to host a demonstration project in 2006?

The Lighting Research Center has recently been awarded a contract by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority to work with LaMar Lighting and Watt Stopper/Legrand on a new demonstration project. The project will involve installation of T5 warehouse lighting with adjustable photometrics and advanced lighting controls.

Wanted: Companies with warehouses in New York State and willing to participate in brief survey

For part of the upcoming 2006 warehouse demonstration project, the LRC is seeking additional warehouse sites in New York State to document the lighting in the facilities. The warehouses need to use forklifts in their daily operations, and utilize HID or T5 fluorescent lighting. Participants will be asked to take part in a brief survey.

If you are interested in participating in either project, please contact LRC researcher, Jennifer Brons at (518) 687-7136 or
