See how hotel lighting from GE increased energy efficiency for the Las Vegas Sands Corp., and made big savings a sure thing.
When the Las Vegas Sands Corp. wanted new hotel lighting for The Venetian and The Palazzo, they turned to GE. The complex was updated using energy-efficient lighting like CFL technology, alongside LED PAR30 and LED BR30 lamps. New hotel suite and meeting room lighting took The Venetian and Palazzo customer experience to the next level, while simultaneously meeting the goals of their sustainability programs.

At The Venetian and The Palazzo the guest experience is the most important thing to us. And since we are a twenty-four hour operation, lighting plays a huge role in this one.
Our resorts are so highly designed that any lighting just wouldn't do. With GE Lighting there are no trade-offs between aesthetics and energy conservation.
The lighting is very important in enhancing the design. The Venetian Palazzo is a beautiful resort and as you look at the meeting space lighting is very important to both in how bright it is and how well it sets off the architecture and we were able to accomplish that with GE.
We've developed a product called Sands Meetings that put all of it together: The tradeshows, the convention, the meeting, the banquet, the catering, etc., etc, for all of the different property across the world.
One of the things we have realized is that often our customers are very interested in our initiatives and therefore, by us being more committed to the environment and sustainability we are attracting more of this business into our buildings.
"The Venetian | The Palazzo installed more than 5,700 energy smart® BR30 LED lamps in its meeting rooms. The 12-watt lamps, with a rated lifespan of 25,000 hours, will save the company more than $400,000 in annual lighting costs."
The GE LED lighting installed The Venetian Palazzo meeting rooms is crisper, has more lumens, has a better color rendering, but also is more energy efficient.
It helps us save energy, but also provides a better customer experience for our clients.
"The lighting upgrade was part of the Sands Eco360˚ Green Meetings Program.
GE's innovative technologies fit perfect into our Sands Eco360˚ strategy to reduce the impact in the local communities we operate in and also protect the environment.
It's very important to meeting planners that you're making a difference. It's a competitive advantage to have a sustainability program and GE has helped us do that.
What we also realized is the maintenance was reduced significantly because we had to change hardly any light bulbs over the past six years.
"As a result of GE's more energy-efficient solutions, Las Vegas Sands has reduced its annual lighting spend by about $2 million.
GE partnered very well with us to help us reduce our energy cost and consumption to support all that we try to do on that front.
The partnership with GE allowed us the opportunity to have an extremely high return on our investment.
Our GE representative is less of a sales person and more like a lighting consultant or advisor. He is very familiar with our property and is able to provide or offer new products just as soon as they enter the market.
We spent a lot of time really identifying the objectives of the Sands Corporation and really challenging them with understanding the value of light and how it could meet their sustainability needs.
GE is also working with The Venetian and The Palazzo on developing new products for our unique applications.
You can see that we have a strong partnership with GE. Strong partnerships are made out of performances in the past and also innovations for the future.
