    When the energy crisis of the 1970s forced the Gulf Oil Company to shut down the tower lights, the Pittsburgh tradition of the weather beacon effectively died out. So when the building owners at Rugby Realty Co., Inc., decided in 2012 to resurrect this much-loved city institution, they turned to a Philips Color Kinetics LED lighting solution that could provide both user-controlled color and a high level of energy efficiency. 

    The design objective of the installation was to create a dynamic, color-changing light sculpture without incurring high energy costs. To accomplish this, the building owners hired lighting designers Cindy Limauro and Christopher Popowich of C & C Lighting, LLC.  Limauro and Popowich specified Philips Color Kinetics ColorGraze Powercore luminaires for the retrofit. Consuming a maximum of only 70 W of energy per fixture, these 4 ft (1219 mm) linear LED wall grazing luminaires provided the energy efficiency and color consistency required for fulfilling the client's vision.
