Baceline Investments

Project Summary

Baceline Investments is a private equity real estate investment company with a strong Sustainable Initiatives Program focused on thoughtful environmental choices that also have a positive financial impact on the properties they own. With these goals in mind, when it was time to upgrade exterior lighting at Western Avenue Plaza in South Bend, Indiana, Baceline contracted Majority Builders to install Lumerica LED parking lot light fixtures.

Originally, Baceline had 12light poles, each standing 42 ft. high with 2 qty 1,000W HID fixtures. With aging light fixtures and higher than average maintenance costs due to pole height, Baceline opted for3 qty 165W Lumerica LED Light Fixtures on each pole. In doing so, Baceline was able to reduce their electricity consumption by 77%, and lengthen the maintenance cycle to approximately 10 years. With no mercury, CFCs, gas, or phosphors, Lumerica LED Light Fixtures are environmentally friendly.
