Case Study:

StoneRidge

StoneRidge is a senior living community in Mystic, CT offering independent living, assisted living, and senior health services.

When leadership at StoneRidge and LCS considered the idea of a turnkey energy efficiency upgrade for all the lighting and mechanical equipment in their community, it was with the understanding that quality of light and resident comfort would drive their decision-making even more than the potential for energy savings. Their top priority was providing their residents with a well-lit, safe and comfortable environment, while maintaining the distinct ambience of the property. They knew all four components are critical to resident satisfaction.

What Measures We Installed:

  • Over 4,000 lighting fixtures upgraded to LED.
  • 2-Way Valve Actuators on Condenser Water Loops
  • Fan Speed VFD Controls on RTUs
  • CO2 Controls on RTUs
  • Refrigeration Controls: Evaporator Fan Replacement, Fan Controls, Door Heater Controls

Thank you to the Greenleaf team for the professional way in which this project was managed. Your work crew was amazing… respectful to our residents and team, hard working, and diligent. We appreciate the good communication throughout the project.

- Kathleen Z. Dess, Executive Director.
