"Morris' downtown lighting desperately needed updating for consistent performance
and efficiency. I helped the town retrofit 229 sodium fixtures with the 60W Amerlux®
Avista® LED light engine. The town's electric bills are now down by 50%, and Morris
won a $78,000 grant - covering 57% of the project!"
- Joel Lauth, Lighting Solutions of Illinois
From a lumen wasteland to a lighting wonderland.
Morris, Illinois, is a legendary Chicagoland destination with a vibrant, historic downtown district. Filled with grand old Victorian homes, quaint shopping, dining, and businesses, the town's lighting evolved slowly and disjointedly during the 20th century. The result? A massively expensive, outdated patchwork of inefficient mix-and-match sodium lamps.
Amerlux helped Morris see itself in a whole new light, from initial assessments and planning through a detailed three-month performance test of our powerful 60W Avista LED light engine. During the test, we were on call and on site to supervise and tweak the system. Avista passed the test with flying colors, and we successfully installed 229 light engines throughout the town.
The new lighting brings a whole new visual perspective to downtown Morris, and with it, new visitors and commerce.
That's the new Morris. With a little help from Amerlux.
