After flipping the switch, the lights at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum would come to full brightness about 10-15 minutes later! The collection of nearly 50 aircraft at the museum wasn’t getting the spotlight it deserved.

Earlier this year, Hydro One reached out to the museum and suggested they take part in the Retrofit Program to replace their old High Intensity Discharge fixtures. Through the program, the museum installed 750 new energy-efficient light fixtures. The new lights will decrease the museum’s energy use by 75 per cent.

“The historic airplanes, gift shop, meeting rooms and hallways are all brighter and lighter now. The whole process was extremely simple for us — Hydro One approached us and did all the paperwork, so it was very easy. The team was also great to work with,” said Marketing Manager Al Mickeloff, whose museum is known for housing Canada’s aviation history from World War II to present.
