“Our goal was to reduce our energy consumption and control our maintenance costs,” said Wayne Shupp, facility supervisor of the Allentown Parking Authority. “Only two months after the project, we’re already seeing the results we hoped for. Aesthetically, the whole building looks new. Overall, we’re very pleased; this investment was really a nobrainer.”
