For over 150 years, St. Michael Catholic Church has been serving the St. Michael, MN area with an orthodox faith centered on prayer, service and Sacramental life.
St. Michael Catholic Church was looking for a new LED lighting solution that would result in energy and maintenance savings while maintaining or bettering their sanctuary’s light output.
The sanctuary lighting was comprised of high watt incandescent bulbs. 500 Watt PAR56 lamps were being used in the sanctuary cans and spotlights. The sanctuary low ceiling cans and tracklights were outfit with 250W PAR and 85W PAR bulbs respectively. These provided a fair amount of light but were very inefficient. To compound matters they did not last long and were difficult to replace, particularly the PAR56 lamps high up.
While replacing the energy-draining incandescent bulbs was obvious, finding an LED solution to put out comparable light for the application was not so simple. This is where Premier Lighting’s experience with custom Church LED lighting solutions was put to the test. Custom LED retrofit kits were deployed that were a perfect replacement for all the application areas within the sanctuary.
In conjunction with the energy savings and rebate, St. Michael Catholic Church was able to reach pay-back in just over a year. Their annual energy savings are set at over 93%. The new custom LED lights that were installed are warrantied for a number of years, meaning they also get to side-step replacing the incandescent bulbs in hard to reach areas.
