Greentech Lead America: GE Lighting has helped Las Vegas Sands Corp upgrade its meeting spaces lighting at The Venetian|The Palazzo Las Vegas to expansive energy-efficient LED lighting.

Halogen bulbs in The Venetian|The Palazzo meeting rooms were replaced with more than 5,700 energy smart BR30 LED lamps. This will reduce the resort’s annual electricity use by nearly 4.1 million kilowatt hours (kWh), saving more than $400,000 in annual lighting costs, Las Vegas Sands said.

The move to GE’s energy-efficient LED lighting solution further enhances Las Vegas Sands’ comprehensive Sands ECO 360°Global Sustainability program that features an array of best practices in four integral areas—green buildings, environmentally responsible operations, green meetings, and stakeholder engagement.

Las Vegas Sands first invested in GE’s LED and compact fluorescent lighting (CFL) in 2010 at The Venetian|The Palazzo, where 7-watt PAR20 LED lamps and 10- and 15-watt CFL bulbs were installed in more than 7,000 guest suites.

As a result of GE’s more energy-efficient solutions, Las Vegas Sands has reduced its annual lighting spend by about $2 million overall including savings in suites and meeting spaces combined.

“The team at GE Lighting impressed us with the range of products that help us conserve even more energy without sacrificing the high aesthetic standards that our meeting and convention customers expect of a five-diamond resort and meeting center,” said Norbert Riezler, senior vice president and chief procurement and sustainability officer at Las Vegas Sands.
