Westside Jewish Center Apartments – LED Retrofit

Project Overview

Old lighting tends to have a dim, yellow tone which can drag down the energy of a space. That’s why it was so important to update the Westside Jewish Center Apartment building to fresh, clean lighting. The common areas such as the dining hall, lobby and hallways had not been updated in decades. With an LED retrofit the common spaces now have a lighter, brighter and safer feeling making for happy residents.

Client Story

The Westside Jewish Center Apartments is home to an active community of seniors. They were looking to reduce energy bills, decrease number of maintenance calls and improve the quality of light for the residents. The Sunnect Lighting retrofit involved removing all of the lighting ballasts at the property, in addition to the use of lamps with operating lives of 50,000+ hours. These 2 factors alone will all but eliminate what had turned out to be regular service calls.
  • Lamps contain no hazardous materials
  • >90% of the energy used is to create light, not heat
  • Instant start and no flicker
  • Lamp life unaffected by cycling
  • Directional lighting


All of the Sunnect Lighting LED retrofits share many of the same benefits. The larger the LED retrofit, the more noticeable the benefits. For example, if you were to only retrofit 10 fixtures at a property, chances are you will not notice anything different on your next electric bill. However, for this project where hundreds of fixtures were retrofitted to new LED lighting, this customer has seen their energy bill drop by 34% due to the retrofit alone.
  • Enhanced Light Quality
  • Significant energy savings
  • Elimination of (575) lighting ballasts for maintenance-free lighting
  • 50,000 hour lamp lives
  • Increased security at property and elimination of all “dark spots”
