The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a museum and hall of fame located in downtown Cleveland, Ohio, on the shore of Lake Erie. The museum is a multistory, iconic structure made up of galleries that document the history of rock music as well as the artists, producers, engineers, and other notable figures who have influenced its development.
The unique seven-level building, designed by I.M. Pei and dedicated in 1995, required updates to several important infrastructure systems. Both Spectrum Energy and Evans Energy were engaged to recommend specific improvements and upgrades. Like most museums, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame relies on both public and private funding to maintain their facilities. This means funding budgets are tight, requiring mechanical upgrade projects to have a strong ROI. As a result, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame intended to use the energy savings from their new LED lighting system to help offset the longer-term payback upgrades.
Eco Engineering was selected to design a turnkey lighting system upgrade for the non-gallery areas of the museum, including all common areas, offices, mechanical rooms, storage, and workshops where gallery displays are constructed. We replaced fluorescent tubular and PL lamps in existing fixtures in these areas with LED technology.
The energy savings that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame received from their new lighting system was equivalent to removing 22 combustion engine passenger cars from the road annually
- Demand Reduction: 34 kW
- Annual Consumption Savings: 124,656 kWh
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s investment in new lighting would save them over $10,000 every year in energy and maintenance costs.
- Saved $831 in monthly energy costs
- Saved $277 in monthly maintenance expense
- The total annual savings will exceed $13,200 per year.
