  • High Efficiency Parking Lighting for Federal Agencies: The Time Is Now to Join LEEP and Get the Resources You Need

    State-of-the-art lighting technology can provide rapid return on investments by reducing energy use 20% to 70%, compared to typical practice. Some have also realized significant reductions in lighting maintenance costs, in part because of the longevity of the new technologies. The Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) encourages Federal agencies to take advantage of these energy saving lighting systems, and to highlight their commitment and successes by joining the Lighting Energy in Parking (LEEP) Campaign.
