Bright Idea The altadena apartments benefit from multi-family lighting program

This historic multi-family building on the south end of Spokane’s downtown opted for an energy-efficiency upgrade this winter and the difference was instantly recognizable.

High-efficiency Feit Electric LED bulbs were installed in all of the shared interior and exterior spaces, as well as several apartments.

The bulbs, constructed of lightweight plastic instead of glass, are 100-percent mercury-free, sturdy, durable and – this is the best part – can save up to 85% on energy costs.

Robert is a local energy consultant from SBW Consulting, a water- and energy-efficiency engineering firm that partners with utilities like Avista to help make simple but important changes that mutually benefit people and the environment.

“These lights are so great. They’re brighter, yet the light is somehow softer,” explains Vivian, Community Manager at the Altadena Apartments.

“They don’t get as hot as traditional bulbs so they’re safer, and once they’re installed, we really don’t need to think about them for years.”

To qualify for this program, multi-family buildings must be Avista electric customers and house five or more individual units. So long as those simple qualifications are met, this program is offered free-of-charge.
