The LED lighting retrofit at Hodson Hall is the first among what is hoped to be many energy-saving LED retrofits around the lecture halls on campus. All work will be done while rooms are not in use, but the Office of Sustainability wanted you to know the lights may look slightly different once complete. The aim is to match the temperature (color) of lights as much as possible, as well as overall brightness. However, you may notice small changes. Those changes mean important things. With more than 1,000 lights in Hodson Hall, the university will save 50,000 kWh annually, equivalent to four average single family homes' energy use in a year. This is one step among many to help achieve Johns Hopkins' goal of a 51 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2025.
