Materials

The lighting distributor and manufacturer worked with resort representatives to choose the LED-8045 as a replacement for existing halogen lamps. LED retrofit lamps were available, which allowed the resort to maintain the original fixtures and lighting design. The lamps’ UL certification ensures they meet regulatory criteria. In addition, custom-color lamps with a warm white light were developed to improve the guest experience.

The Retrofit

The Monte Carlo Resort and Casino, one of 10 MGM resorts on the Las Vegas Strip, replaced 96 500-watt halogen lamps with 50-watt LED lamps in its Street of Dreams. The busy retail area composes 8,950 square feet.

Cost efficiency and a dramatic decrease in watt usage have been achieved— two goals of the project. Resort management estimates project payback was achieved in less than four months. “It’s an amazingly quick recovery,” says Chris Magee, executive director of Sustainability for MGM Resorts International. “The new lamps not only save wattage, they have enabled us to brighten up the area without dramatically changing the look and feel of Street of Dreams.”
