Georgia Power recognizes Hartsfield-Jackson International for energy efficiency efforts

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport received a rebate check from Georgia Power officials following the completion of the airport’s latest energy efficiency upgrades.

Georgia Power presented a US$45,901 rebate check to the airport as part of the company’s Commercial Energy Efficiency program. Hartsfield-Jackson Airport earned the rebate by upgrading halogen lamps in more than 16,000 runway and taxiway fixtures to energy-efficient LEDs in 2014. The airport is the first in the world to have an all LED fixture airfield.

Miguel Southwell, aviation general manager, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, said, “We work tirelessly to be one of the most sustainable airports in the world. We are grateful for our partnership with Georgia Power on our airfield LED lighting project and look forward to working together on future energy efficiency initiatives.”

The new LEDs, which have a lifespan of 200,000 hours, last longer than incandescent lamps, and significantly reduce energy requirements. The LEDs were installed in runway edge lights, runway centerline lights, runway guard lights, taxiway guard lights and taxiway centerline lights. Georgia Power estimates that the airport may save more than 2m kWh annually through the improvements.

Michele Wagner, energy efficiency director for Georgia Power, said, “We’re committed to collaborating with our customers to meet their energy needs, improve their efficiency and help them save on their overall energy costs. We congratulate Hartsfield-Jackson and the city of Atlanta for a continued focus on sustainability and dedication to energy efficiency.”
