In New Jersey, the State Energy Office utilized $383,420 in SEP funds to provide a grant that would fund the Battleship New Jersey Lighting Retrofit Project. This project involved the conversion of interior and exterior inefficient incandescent lights to LEDs. Over 5,000 fluorescent lighting tubes were replaced throughout the interior of the ship and 120 spot lamps and nine 1,000 watt metaled halide fixtures were replaced with 300 watt LED color changing lights on the exterior of the ship. The estimated annual energy savings for this retired battleship-turned-museum is $100,000, and the estimated annual electric savings is 625,000kWh.
