What is LEEP?
State-of-the art lighting technologies can last 2 to 5 times longer than traditional outdoor lights. These systems pay for themselves quickly by cutting energy costs up to 70% and maintenance costs up to 90%. The Lighting Energy Efficiency in Parking (LEEP) Campaign offers free guidance and recognition to facility owners interested in implementing energy efficient lighting solutions in their parking facilities.
Joining the LEEP Campaign will provide you with access to tools and expertise to lower your facility's operating costs through thoughtful design of a new site, and through lighting retrofits of existing sites. Join today at no cost and learn how you can start saving! Campaign members have unique access to the technical expertise of the Department of Energy, and may be recognized for their achievements.
Accomplishments to Date
LEEP Participants are collectively saving over 120 million kilowatt-hours and over $10 million annually, based on 430 million square feet of high efficiency parking lighting logged as of September 2014.
The goal of the LEEP Campaign is to have energy efficient lighting installed in at least 500 million square feet of parking space by March 1, 2015 relative to the September 2012 start date. The figure above charts our progress to date.
