Extinguish Inefficiency at Police and Fire Facilities

Police and fire facilities act as a home away from home for the first responders in our community. The ComEd® Energy Efficiency Program can help improve the cost-effectiveness—not to mention the security, comfort and aesthetics—of public safety facilities.


The on-call, 24-hour nature of police stations and firehouses necessitates lighting systems that are flexible, efficient and ideally automated. ComEd provides incentives for installation of occupancy sensors, daylight controls and timers that ensure that areas are always well lit whenever they need to be—and aren’t wasting energy when they don’t.

Energy-efficient equipment reduces the need for maintenance and replacement projects—a particular hassle for public safety buildings. Newer LEDs use about 75 percent less energy and last 15 times longer than traditional incandescent light bulbs, enhancing reliability and longevity of lighting in restricted-access areas in police facilities and the high bays of firehouses.
