As part of larger LED retrofit project, install occupancy sensors to control lighting activation within applicable spaces types (private offices, open-floor office spaces, conference rooms, etc.). Occupancy sensors are used to automatically shut off or dim lighting power in a space when it is not in use. The addition of occupancy sensors allows for an additional energy saving of approximately 20% in applicable space when compared to manual lighting control.

Assumptions:
• Roughly 80% of building square footage would include applicable spaces for occupancy sensor control.
• Approximately 35 occupancy sensors can be installed across various space types throughout the site.
• Costs based on contractor bids for material & installation estimated at $230 - $360/occupancy sensor.
