Rife makes Martin Luther King (MLK) Aquatic Center in Montgomery County Energy Efficient

2014-mlkRife International was contracted by the Montgomery County Facilities Management to create a solution that will increase lighting levels and save energy at the MLK recreation center, located at 1201 Jackson Rd, Silver Spring, MD.

Rife performed an audit of the space and proposed energy efficient solutions that would also require little or no maintenance after the lighting retrofit. The scope of work included replacement of 1000 Watt Metal Halides with New Venture 40,000 Hour Long-Life Pulse Start Kits amongst other upgrades.

“We are very impressed with the work Rife has done at the MLK pool facility. The staff and patrons of the facility are very happy with the improved lighting level and ultimate brightness of the pool area.  This also helps us in our effort to make county facilities more energy efficient,” said Don Collins of Montgomery County Facilities Management.

This project saves the center about $15K annually and reduces energy consumption by 64,201 KWH per year, which is equivalent to 18 acres of trees planted per year or 10 cars removed from the road per year.
