Skyline’s Illumination Project Well Underway
July 26, 2017 - Press Release
Skyline’s Illumination Project is well underway, and staff across Canada have been working diligently to replace interior light-bulbs in their buildings with new high-efficiency LED bulbs, while properly and safely disposing of the old CFL and incandescent bulbs. Many communities have already had their light-bulbs replaced with high-efficiency LEDs, which will improve the ‘green factor’ in buildings and significantly reduce energy costs.
As of mid-July, approximately 4,500 Skyline apartment units in 15 cities across Ontario have already received their new light-bulbs. The retrofits in the following Ontario communities are now %100 complete:
- Sault Ste Marie
- Niagara Falls
- St. Catharines
- North Bay
- Thunder Bay
- New Hamburg
By the end of the lighting retrofit project, Skyline will have replaced more than 330,000 bulbs in more than 16,000 apartment suites across Canada. This includes common areas, hallways, and service rooms, as well as over 3,600 apartment suites where residents pay for their own hydro, allowing these tenants to save on their hydro bills at no cost to them.
