Reducing the Oculus’s Carbon Footprint

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s Oculus terminal in Lower Manhattan is a salute to those whom we lost on September 11, 2001. Representing a bird being released from a child’s hands, the 350-foot arches were outfitted with more than 13,000 lighting fixtures. The original fixtures racked up an expensive bill, so the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey sought out FSG to replace the original fluorescent lights with LED fixtures.

With the Oculus being the most expensive train station in the world, The Port Authority could not afford to incur the highest electricity bill in the world. Understanding that LED lighting is more energy efficient and affordable than fluorescent, FSG stepped in and helped reduce the Oculus’s carbon footprint.
