JACKSON, Mich., May 1, 2013 -- Andersen Air Force Base, located in United States territory of Guam, is one of four Bomber Forward Operating Locations in the Air Force. These locations provide forward support to bomber crews deploying overseas in Europe, Southwest Asia and in the Pacific. As the U.S. Military is the single largest consumer of energy in the world, the base began searching for options to reduce energy consumption and immediately recognized lighting efficiency as the quickest means to do so.
In the summer of 2012, the U.S. Air Force cooperatively worked with GreenTech of Ventura and Kenclaire West of Fresno, California to seek out a commercial lighting solution that would meet their facility codes while improving illumination, and significantly lowering energy costs. "GreenTech teaches our clients about actions their business can take to save money in areas of energy and lighting. We help discover financial resources, like rebates and grants to implement energy efficient lighting," said Dan Grumney , President of GreenTech. "In our experience, we find military organizations often selecting EverLast® for installation based on warranty, lifespan, and the fact that the fixtures meet the 'Buy American' requirement for the U.S. Military."
When it came time to implement a high-efficiency street lighting initiative, officials at the base selected EverLast® street and area induction lights. In late 2012, Andersen Air Force Base moved forward with the advanced lighting fixtures and replaced two hundred and fourteen 250 watt high pressure sodium fixtures with 150 watt EverLast® Daytona Cobra Head fixtures along the main roads of the base. "The EverLast® Daytona Cobra Head is the ideal energy efficient roadway lighting solution that provides a more natural and high color rendition light quality unlike traditional high pressure sodium fixtures," Grumney explained.
EverLast® induction light fixtures are 50-70% more energy efficient than metal halides and last up to 100,000 hours, making them virtually maintenance free for up to 15 years. The induction lighting fixtures are also available with a dimmable option, providing even more energy savings while areas are vacant. "The U.S. Government continues to select EverLast® because we meet, and exceed the U.S. Made requirements," explained Bryan Schultz , Regional Sales Manager of EverLast® Lighting, Inc. "We've also been able to reduce energy consumption at other military bases such as Fort Drum in New York, and Eglin Air Force Base in Florida."
