Replace Fluorescent Light Bulbs at Park Headquarters with LED Bulbs

Glacier National Park Headquarters

The goal of this project is to remove all 861 4-foot fluorescent bulbs in the headquarters building and the most used bulbs throughout buildings in the headquarters and Apgar areas and replace them with 4-foot LED bulbs that are compatible with fluorescent fixture ballasts requiring no rewiring of fixtures. These 4-foot fluorescent bulbs use over twice the power of replacement LED bulbs, and the storage and disposal of fluorescent bulbs is more costly than LED bulbs. This simple update will reduce annual operational costs of basic park administrative operations, freeing up the funds typically spent on electricity to be spent on other projects throughout the park.
