SOLON, Ohio, June 2 -- Energy Focus, Inc. (NASDAQ: EFOI), a global leader in energy-efficient lighting technologies, today announced that it has retrofitted the Cuyahoga County Gerber Building located in Cleveland, OH with its newest LED lighting solution - Energy Efficient LED Landscape Lighting.
This marks the second beta site for the new fixtures after an install at Geis Construction headquarters in Streetsboro, OH earlier in the year.
Energy Focus Inc. replaced 250 and 400 watt Metal Halide fixtures with Energy Focus' new 26 watt LED Landscape luminaires. The fixtures are exclusively manufactured by Energy Focus, Inc. in Solon, OH. This retrofit reduced the County building's energy consumption by 89% and practically eliminates maintenance for at least 10 years because of the fixtures' 50,000 hour LED lamp life.
In total, this energy efficient upgrade will improve the environmental impact of the county by lowering electrical consumption by 89% annually. In other words, the LED upgrade is equivalent to planting 8,121 new trees or taking 11 cars off the road.
Joe Kaveski, Energy Focus CEO, commented, "We are very pleased with the reception our new line of energy efficient landscape lighting has received. Given the extraordinary energy saving we've been able to realize over conventional HID lighting, we expect to see rapid deployment of these products, especially in view of the added emphasis on saving energy in existing government buildings written into the recent stimulus legislation."
