Considering the architectural structure of the church, the system designer Jung Hoon Kim was looking for a white‐light LED fixture that is easy to install and maintain. At the same time, Kim wanted a more sustainable and economical way of lighting. After consulting with C&C Lightway, it was determined that Source 4WRD II was the perfect answer. Source 4WRD II is an energy‐saving retrofit for a traditional Source Four light engine that transforms the HPL source into a white‐light LED. Its LED light source has an L70 rating of 45,000 hours
with only 175 watts of power consumed per fixture in an hour, while Source Four consumes 750 watts of electricity.
“It’s an energy‐saving and a cost‐ eﬀective solution. I feel like the brightness is twice that of using the existing fixtures while consuming almost 70% less power,” commented Kim. “It’s sustainable as well. We reduce our carbon footprint by upcycling the existing fixtures. LED has a longer lifespan which doesn’t require frequent replacement. And it’s 77% cooler than surface of a tungsten, thus reducing the use of a/c,” added by Kim.
