Whittier City Hall Tower
Southern California

The historic, 60-foot Whittier City Hall tower is now illuminated with energy-saving, cost-saving LED light system, designed and installed by RAY-LITE Energy Management Group Inc. of Brea, California.

RAY-LITE president, Christopher Tammen, worked closely with Bryan Petroff, the City of Whittier's Facilities Manager, to find an energy and cost-effective way to illuminate the tower has it never had been before.

"Bryan Petroff, challenged our team at RAY-LITE with three objectives," said Tammen, "First, to restore the architectural lighting design to its original form. Second, to adopt a "green" and energy efficient technology that would also reduce maintenance costs. Finally, to create an eye-catching architectural display that can be programmed to define the Whittier seasonal moods."

"The old tower lighting," said Petroff, "was cathode tubing, prone to breakage and quite costly to repair. Subsequently, the tower's lights were shut down for many years."

Tammen recommended an LED system that uses only 350-watts of power, is energy and cost efficient and environmentally friendly. The LED system, manufactured by Traxon Technologies Ltd., offers substantial, long-term energy and cost savings plus lower operational costs.

"The lighting for the city hall tower now has the ability to change colors as desired," said Tammen. "For example, they can glow red, white and blue for Independence Day, or red and green for the holiday season. "

The lighting of Whittier's city hall tower was coordinated with the newly remodeled Whittier Police Department.

The tower lighting project is just one of many energy-efficient, turn-key projects from RAY-LITE Industries, Inc.
