The Airport Authority used a grant to replace 1,471 existing high-intensity discharge lights with high-efficiency LED fixtures in the long-term and extended parking lots and the three-level parking garage of Pittsburgh International Airport.
The three-story parking garage has 2,100 parking spaces and also houses the rental car agencies on its first floor. The LED lights are brighter than previously installed fixtures and use 73% less energy which equates to 2,159,880 kWh savings annually.
The LED lighting project consumes an estimated 83 percent less energy and result in $158,754 in annual energy savings, with 2,118,438 kWh saved over the project’s lifetime.
The PIT Airport has not fully converted to LED lighting fixtures throughout the location, however have experimented with multiple other LED lighting companies and fixtures. These other products have not demonstrated the same amount of reliability that the ALLED fixtures, therefore leaving the airport with additional maintenance costs.

The LED lighting project at Pittsburgh International Airport is a win-win situation because it will increase energy efficiency and decrease operating costs for the Airport Authority.
