Pineland Farms

New Gloucester, Maine 

THE SITUATION

Pineland Farms is a 5,000-acre working farm, diverse business campus and educational and recreational venue. The site’s LED retrofit project has the support of Efficiency Maine, a statewide effort to promote more efficient use of electricity, help Maine residents and businesses reduce energy costs, and improve Maine's environment. Administered by the Maine Public Utilities Commission, the Efficiency Maine Business Program provided support for the LED pilot project at Pineland and offered advice to help Pineland Farms save energy and improve Maine’s environment.

THE SOLUTION

The revolutionary LED Retrofit Kit for Outdoor Area Lighting from OSRAM SYLVANIA takes advantage of the directional light distribution of 66 high brightness, Golden DRAGON® Plus LEDs from OSRAM Opto Semiconductors and delivers light only where needed, minimizing light trespass and disruption to Pineland Farm’s neighbors. It is a perfect solution for communities like Pineland Farms who wish to convert their existing street lighting system to a more environmentally preferable solution, which offers substantial energy savings and dramatic improvements in light quality.
