HOA The Village of Wellington, located in South Florida, is home to the community of Versailles. This luxury gated community has been featured on HGTV as one of America's Best Communities To Live, as well as the DIY's hit renovation show called "The Vanilla Ice Project," hosted by local resident Vanilla Ice. This prestigious community began construction in 2002 and was completed in 2006. It features estate homes with a sophisticated French country manor inspired design. Highlights in Versailles include the impressive Clubhouse, but more notably the main entrance into the community. Homeowners and visitors alike are welcomed as they enter Versailles with Landscape LED edition

Located in Wellington, Florida, Versailles is a luxury gated community.

the multi-million dollar half mile entryway lined with palm trees, beautiful foliage and magnificent tiered fountains, entirely accented with landscape lighting. The Versailles Home Owners Association takes great pride in ensuring that their charming and elegant European designed community is well maintained, which includes the existing incandescent landscape lighting. However, this type of lighting proved to not only be inefficient, but required constant maintenance and bulb replacement, thus creating rising costs and expenditures. The HOA felt it was time to find an alternate lighting solution and replace the mismatched bulb types and multicolored landscape fixtures, with long-lasting and low maintenance LED lighting. August 2011

The Project LED Source®, a Wellington based LED lighting solution provider, worked with the Versailles HOA to effectively light the main entrance center island with LED lighting, and to eliminate the outer berm lighting. To accomplish this task, LED Source® contracted Complete Electric to repair several damaged light circuits and to run new conduit and wiring in areas that were previously wired incorrectly. Much of the existing wiring to the landscape lighting was also corroded, which created many dark spots. It was also necessary to coordinate the removal and capping off of the outer left and right berm lighting since it would no longer be required. LED Source® designed a new lighting plan with the intention of utilizing longlife and extremely durable LED lighting fixtures. To further enhance this design, each fixture also incorporated the ability to have interchangeable lenses, thus eliminating the costs for additional lights. Standardizing the fixtures for Versailles has made it very simple and easy for inventory management and has offered a uniformed color throughout the community.

Previous Lighting The original landscape lighting used by Versailles consisted of mismatched 100 Watt incandescent, 300 Watt Quartz and 100 Watt Metal Halide fixtures. The previous lighting was not a viable option due to the corrosion of many of the fixtures.

LED Lighting Solution LED Source® provided two specific LED fixtures for the Community of Versailles: • eW Burst Compact Powercore by Philips Color Kinetics at 15 Watts featuring 23º and 10º x 41º lenses • EcoSpec Landscape Mini-Flood by EcoSense at 12 Watts featuring 45º and 90º lenses

LED Savings Look Bright LED Source® was able to provide significant benefits and savings to the Versailles HOA through the usage of LED lighting. The development now features a well designed lighting plan, properly lit fountains and palm trees, and improved security. It is estimated that Versailles will incur no additional maintenance and replacement costs for the next 12 years, due to the 50,000 hour life span for each of the LED fixtures.

*Versailles will see substantial savings in annual maintenance costs of $42,459. In addition, the total annual energy savings is estimated at $20,946. * Savings listed are an estimate only and are based upon information provided.
