Revolution Lighting Technologies, Inc. has announced that since the opening of its state of the art Simi Valley production and warehouse facility in March 2017, the company continues to penetrate the federal and military sector through energy savings performance contract wins (ESPC), producing more than 205,000 (BAA) and Trade Agreements Act (TAA) compliant LED tubes for federal and military lighting projects.
Revolution Lighting works closely with many of the super energy services companies (ESCO) throughout the U.S. to provide its high performance BAA/TAA LED tubes for ESPCs. Recent contract wins include projects with the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, and the U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. Marine Corps facilities, including the Parris Island Marine Corps Base. The 8,095-acre military facility, located in Port Royal, South Carolina, is the primary location for Marine Corps recruit training. Revolution Lighting’s high-efficiency LED tubes will replace existing fluorescent lighting within the marine barracks on base. The lighting retrofit portion of the project is expected to achieve a payback of less than two years.
The Company currently produces our industry leading LED tubes at this location and is in the process of adding thin panels, linear high bay, and wall pack fixtures to meet the growing demand from sectors including education, municipal and notably, U.S. federal and military lighting retrofit programs. These solutions deliver superior efficiency to reduce lighting energy use by more than 65%, while increasing light output for enhanced safety. Additionally, LED lighting lasts three times longer than conventional fluorescent lighting, combined with Revolution Lighting’s market leading 10-year warranty, to provide significant long-term operational and maintenance cost savings.
“We are excited to expand the presence of our LED solutions, including key federal and military retrofit markets, to drive continued growth and incremental revenue for the company,” said Robert V. LaPenta, CEO and Chairman, Revolution Lighting. “Since the opening of our state-of-the-art Simi Valley production facility, we continue to experience increased demand not only for military and federal customers, but also for municipalities, hospitals and schools that prefer U.S.-manufactured products, including our industry-leading BAA and TAA compliant LED tubes, to aid them in achieving energy efficiency goals.”
