The Results are in for the 2018 Interior Lighting Campaign!

As of August 2018, participants in the Interior Lighting Campaign (ILC) have installed or upgraded over 2.8 million high efficiency lighting and control systems, which should save over $68 million annually in energy bills and cut energy use by an average 54%. The ILC recognized 15 organizations this summer for leading the way in lighting upgrades, with a combined self-reported $33 million in energy-cost savings by upgrading almost 1.4 million lighting systems to high-efficiency systems.
