Energy Efficiency on The Vegas Strip

NEW LED lighting is helping Las Vegas Sands Corp. take another key step toward curbing the environmental impact at its leading resort and meeting properties.

As part of its Sands ECO 360° Green Meetings program, Las Vegas Sands has completed an expansive energy-efficient LED lighting upgrade to its meeting spaces at The Venetian/The Palazzo Las Vegas.

Halogen bulbs in The Venetian/The Palazzo meeting rooms were replaced with more than 5,700 LED lamps. This will reduce the resort’s annual electricity use by nearly 4.1 million kilowatt hours (kWh), saving more than $400,000 in annual lighting costs that can be applied to other initiatives demonstrating Las Vegas Sands’ environmental commitment.

The move to GE’s energy-efficient LED lighting solution further enhances Las Vegas Sands’ comprehensive Sands ECO 360°Global Sustainability program that features an array of best practices in four integral areas—green buildings, environmentally responsible operations, green meetings, and stakeholder engagement.
