Marina Saves Thousands by Switching to EverLast Induction Light Fixtures Jackson, MI, December 17, 2009 --(PR.com)-- With approximately 9,000 marinas in the United Sates, providing quality moorings, repair services and facilities are not the only essential functions of a marina. It is equally important that marinas provide adequate nighttime lighting to ensure safety for boaters and their boats. Electrical and maintenance costs can be quite costly, which is why John Beal at Dagmars Marina in Everett, WA swapped out their 400 watt high pressure sodium (HPS) fixtures for 200 watt EverLast® Induction Shoe Box fixtures.

Induction Acorn Lighting “The EverLast 200 watt lights certainly produce as much light as High-Tech, Cost & Energy-Efficient the previous 400 watt lights did, and the light itself is white, Roadway, Street & Area Lighting which everyone here really likes compared to the previous HPS www.AEILighting.com fixtures,” said Mr. Beal. “Our estimated yearly savings by the local utilities is close to $15,000, not including routine maintenance costs associated with replacing light bulbs and worn-out fixtures.” With the amount of money being saved annually, Dagmars Marina will see a return on investment in approximately three years. “We’re a dry storage marina that stores approximately 800 boats. We’re located on the Snohomish River close to the Puget Sound, so the temperature can get pretty frigid at night,” said Mr. Beal. “We also get a lot of rain and fog that hinders boater visibility, so the fact that EverLast fixtures turn on instantly, even in colder temperatures, was really important.” Unlike HPS, HID, and LED sources, EverLast® induction lighting fixtures operate in cold temperatures down to -40 degrees Fahrenheit. “The main reasons we chose EverLast induction fixtures over other technologies were because of the reliability, price, and savings after installation,” stated Mr. Beal. “A bonus was that the installation was easy and the fixtures are nice looking.” With a virtually maintenance free 100,000 hour lamp life rating, energy savings of up to 70 percent, unmatched lumen maintenance, and a faster return on investment (ROI) than any other lighting technology, EverLast® Induction shoe box fixtures are today’s smartest choice for illuminating marinas, car dealerships, parking lots, residential neighborhoods, and other public spaces that require energy-efficient, high definition area lighting. Additional energy savings and pedestrian safety is achieved when motion sensors are installed. EverLast® Induction Lighting manufactures a wide variety of energy-efficient outdoor lighting fixtures for garage and parking lot, street and roadway, and walkway and area lighting. Earlier this year EverLast® began manufacturing a new series of Michigan-made induction fixtures, which are the only induction fixtures made in the United States. EverLast® Induction Lighting is a product of Full Spectrum Solutions, Inc. and meet the Department of Energy’s high efficiency standards.

BEERLE.com - Search for pleasure :-))) BEERLE.com UNIV ERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, IRV INE INSTALLS U.S. MADE EV ERLAST® INDUCTION COBRA HEAD FIXTURES As part of a SMART Energy Initiative, the University of California (UC) campuses have been working with the California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) at UC Davis to retrofit inefficient lighting technologies with EverLast® Induction Smart Light fixtures. To date, 30% of UC campuses are receiving massive energy and cost savings due to the implementation of EverLast® Induction fixtures in roadway, walkway, parking lot and garage structure applications. Ron Fleming, Director of Parking and Transportation Services at UC Irvine, recently specified and installed EverLast® Induction Smart Light Cobra Head fixtures in locations that students frequent regularly at night. “We chose induction lighting over all other light sources because it has the highest efficacy lumens and color rendering index,” said Fleming during his UC Irvine Campus Retrofit Forum presentation. “A high color rendering index is just as important as having a good color temperature because it increases nighttime visibility, which is important for campus safety.” UC Irvine is also in the process of installing EverLast® Induction Smart Light fixtures in parking structures and architectural lighting applications. Director Fleming uses these installations as demonstration models when educating other campus facility directors and engineers about the visual and energy-saving benefits of induction technology. U.S. Made EverLast® Induction Smart Light Cobra Head fixtures outperform all other cobra head fixtures. Using type III medium throw lens and reflector optics designed specifically for induction lamp geometry results in a 29% increase in illumination and a 38% increase in light distribution when compared to competing Cobra Head fixtures. As opposed to heavy, metal fixtures that rust or corrode over time, the new hybrid die cast aluminum and glass filled Lexan body structure decreases fixture weight by 40% for ease of installation while maintaining structural strength and improved weathering for harsh environments. All resin used is 80% recycled product.

By using this same state-of-the-art technology, the Facilities Management Program at UC Davis was awarded the Energy Efficiency Partnership Program 2009 Best Practice Award for their parking garage lighting design retrofit in which EverLast® Induction Smart Light Bi-level Garage Fixtures were installed. The estimated annual energy savings for the four parking structures at UC Davis is $77,127, based on the discounted university utilities rate of 9 cents per kilowatt-hour. “EverLast® Induction Smart Lights with bi-level technology offer one of the most effective near-term opportunities for addressing our energy efficiency goals,” says Prof. Michael Siminovitch, Director of CLTC.

BEERLE.com - Search for pleasure :-))) BEERLE.com FUNDING FOR STATE ENERGY PROGRAMS IS STARTING TO TRICKLE INTO THE STATES It may feel like a long time coming, but promised funding for State Energy Programs (SEP) throughout the nation is finally starting to trickle into the states. On February 17, 2009 President Obama passed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) as an effort to jumpstart our economy. Of the money allocated, $17 billion was promised to the Department of Energy (DOE) to support energy efficiency and renewable energy programs.1 The California Energy Commission, for example, recently announced that up to $95 million will be awarded to public, non-profit, and/or private organizations that commit to using SEP funds for energy efficiency, energy conservation, renewable energy, and other energy–related projects and activities authorized by the ARRA.2 One tier of the SEP funding is the Municipal and Commercial Building Retrofit Program, which focuses on achieving significant energy savings from targeted retrofit measures. The Energy Commission mandates the use of best practice technologies that capitalize on low risk, high return efficiency opportunities that are readily available. Examples of best practice technologies that have successfully demonstrated substantial energy savings and are broadly applicable for both public and private municipal and commercial building sties include:2 Occupancy-Sensor Lighting Fixtures • SMART Parking Lot Bi-Level Fixtures • SMART Parking Garage Bi–Level Fixtures • SMART Pathway Lighting • SMART Wall Pack Fixtures2 As part of their Smart Energy Initiative, conservation-minded University of California, Davis campus replaced 381 high pressure sodium (HPS) fixtures with EverLast® 100w SMART Light Bi-Level Induction Garage fixtures in the North Entry Parking Garage in July 2009 – a project that led to winning the 2009 Best Practice Award. UC Davis calculates that the EverLast® SMART Light Bi-Level Induction Garage fixtures will save the university 201,755 kWh annually, which results in an estimated annual energy savings of $77,000. Additionally, EverLast® Induction fixtures have a lamp-life rating of 100,000 hours, meaning that the university will also save money in maintenance costs. By incorporating step-dimming, on/off photo sensor controls and a high correlated color temperature 5000K lamp, EverLast® Smart Light Induction fixtures provide increased pedestrian safety and unmatched energy savings. In addition to bi-level garage fixtures, EverLast® Induction Lighting recently began manufacturing a new line of U.S. made induction lighting solutions called the EverLast® Smart Light Series. The new series includes: cobra head fixtures that are 30 percent more efficient than standard induction roadway and street lighting; acorn fixtures for walkway lighting; and shoe box fixtures for street and parking lot lighting. California is just one of the 50 states that will be receiving ARRA money in the next few months. Municipal leaders, facility managers, and energy analysts interested in obtaining money for energy-efficient lighting projects should start contacting their local and state governments or EverLast® Induction Lighting for more information about SEP funding within their state.

WattStopper has launched a new free energy savings calculating tool that allows users to

calculate the potential energy savings available with occupancy sensors. The Energy Calculator is designed to help users identify lighting control strategies that best match energy savings goals for retrofits or new construction. The calculator provides a list of pre-defined Lighting Control Measures (LCMs), which include pairing an occupancy sensor with an on/off wall switch, bi-level switching, bi-level switching with Auto-on 50 percent or bi-level switching using Auto-on 50 percent with daylighting. Energy savings percentages are based on third-party published documents and research from the Department of Energy (DOE), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Lighting Research Center (LRC), the California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) and other industry case studies.

Industry News University of California, Irvine Installs U.S. Made EverLast® Induction Cobra Head Fixtures As part of a SMART Energy Initiative, the University of California (UC) campuses have been working with the California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) at UC Davis to retrofit inefficient lighting technologies with EverLast® Induction Smart Light fixtures. To date, 30% of UC campuses are receiving massive energy and cost savings due to the implementation of EverLast® Induction fixtures in roadway, walkway, parking lot and garage structure applications. Ron Fleming, Director of Parking and Transportation Services at UC Irvine, recently specified and installed EverLast® Induction Smart Light Cobra Head fixtures in locations that students frequent regularly at night. "We chose induction lighting over all other light sources because it has the highest efficacy lumens and color rendering index," said Fleming during his UC Irvine Campus Retrofit Forum presentation. "A high color rendering index is just as important as having a good color temperature because it increases nighttime visibility, which is important for campus safety." UC Irvine is also in the process of installing EverLast® Induction Smart Light fixtures in parking structures and architectural lighting applications. Director Fleming uses these installations as demonstration models when educating other campus facility directors and engineers about the visual and energy-saving benefits of induction technology. U.S. Made EverLast® Induction Smart Light Cobra Head fixtures outperform all other cobra head fixtures. Using type III medium throw lens and reflector optics designed specifically for induction lamp geometry results in a 29% increase in illumination and a 38% increase in light distribution when compared to competing Cobra Head fixtures. As opposed to heavy, metal fixtures that rust or corrode over time, the new hybrid die cast aluminum and glass filled Lexan body structure decreases fixture weight by 40% for ease of installation while maintaining structural strength and improved weathering for harsh environments. All resin used is 80% recycled product. By using this same state-of-the-art technology, the Facilities Management Program at UC Davis was awarded the Energy Efficiency Partnership Program 2009 Best Practice Award for their parking garage lighting design retrofit in which EverLast® Induction Smart Light Bi-level Garage Fixtures were installed. The estimated annual energy savings for the four parking structures at UC Davis is $77,127, based on the discounted university utilities rate of 9 cents per kilowatt-hour. "EverLast® Induction Smart Lights with bi-level technology offer one of the most effective near-term opportunities for addressing our energy efficiency goals," says Prof. Michael Siminovitch, Director of CLTC. The Patented EverLast® Induction Smart Light Series is manufactured in a newly constructed LEED-certified production facility in Jackson, Michigan U.S.A. This new line of U.S. made induction fixtures includes the only Type III Induction Cobra Head Roadway Fixture. By incorporating photo sensor controls and timed step-dimming along with a high correlated color temperature 5000K lamp that has a color rendering index of 85, EverLast® Induction Smart Light fixtures provide increased pedestrian safety in addition to unmatched energy savings.

Nov 11, 2009 11:04 CET It may feel like a long time coming, but promised funding for State Energy Programs (SEP) throughout the nation is finally starting to trickle into the states. On February 17, 2009 President Obama passed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) as an effort to jumpstart our economy. Of the money allocated, $17 billion was promised to the Department of Energy (DOE) to support energy efficiency and renewable energy programs.1 The California Energy Commission, for example, recently announced that up to $95 million will be awarded to public, non-profit, and/or private organizations that commit to using SEP funds for energy efficiency, energy conservation, renewable energy, and other energy-related projects and activities authorized by the ARRA.2 One tier of the SEP funding is the Municipal and Commercial Building Retrofit Program, which focuses on achieving significant energy savings from targeted retrofit measures. The Energy Commission mandates the use of best practice technologies that capitalize on low risk, high return efficiency opportunities that are readily available. Examples of best practice technologies that have successfully demonstrated substantial energy savings and are broadly applicable for both public and private municipal and commercial building sties include:2 Occupancy-Sensor Lighting Fixtures • SMART Parking Lot Bi-Level Fixtures • SMART Parking Garage Bi-Level Fixtures • SMART Pathway Lighting • SMART Wall Pack Fixtures2 As part of their Smart Energy Initiative, conservation-minded University of California, Davis campus replaced 381 high pressure sodium (HPS) fixtures with EverLast® 100w SMART Light Bi-Level Induction Garage fixtures in the North Entry Parking Garage in July 2009 - a project that led to winning the 2009 Best Practice Award. UC Davis calculates that the EverLast® SMART Light Bi-Level Induction Garage fixtures will save the university 201,755 kWh annually, which results in an estimated annual energy savings of $77,000. Additionally, EverLast® Induction fixtures have a lamp-life rating of 100,000 hours, meaning that the university will also save money in maintenance costs. By incorporating step-dimming, on/off photo sensor controls and a high correlated color temperature 5000K lamp, EverLast® Smart Light Induction fixtures provide increased pedestrian safety and unmatched energy savings. In addition to bi-level garage fixtures, EverLast® Induction Lighting recently began manufacturing a new line of U.S. made induction lighting solutions called the EverLast® Smart Light Series. The new series includes: cobra head fixtures that are 30 percent more efficient than standard induction roadway and street lighting; acorn fixtures for walkway lighting; and shoe box fixtures for street and parking lot lighting. California is just one of the 50 states that will be receiving ARRA money in the next few months. Municipal leaders, facility managers, and energy analysts interested in obtaining money for energy-efficient lighting projects should start contacting their local and state governments or EverLast® Induction Lighting for more information about SEP funding within their state.

City of Encinitas Installs EverLast Induction Light Fixtures to Enhance Public Safety in Glen Park

With public safety being a key concern for park supervisors everywhere, City of Encinitas, CA Park Supervisor, Terry Smith, left nothing to chance when it came time to replace the existing high pressure sodium (HPS) fixtures in Glen Park, which is one of the oldest parks in the city. Terry contracted John Quart, co-founder of Quallight Efficiency Corp., to replace a single light pole that was knocked over by a tree during a storm. After evaluating the damaged light fixture, Mr. Quart recommended that the City of

Encinitas upgrade all the light fixtures in Glen Park to EverLast® Induction Lighting 100w Shoe Box fixtures. “The previous lighting fixtures had been in place for about 25 years, so we quickly decided it was time for a change,” commented Mr. Smith. “The quality of light produced by the EverLast induction fixtures is significantly better than the former HPS fixtures. Glen Park is a high profile park right next to the beach, so it’s important that our residents and park visitors feel safe at night. The EverLast fixtures create that sense of security.” In addition to public safety, energyefficiency and maintenance were other main factors Mr. Smith took into consideration when deciding to swap out all the HPS acorn light fixtures in Glen Park with EverLast 100w Induction Shoe Box fixtures. “High pressure sodium bulbs typically burn out after 15,000 hours, and it costs the city time and money to replace them. With EverLast’s 10-year warranty on the lamp, ballast and fixture, the City of Encinitas will see a large decrease in maintenance costs,” stated Mr. Quart of Quallight Efficiency Corp. “We’ve calculated that Glen Park will also see a 44% reduction in annual lighting costs due to the switch to EverLast fixtures.” With a virtually maintenance free 100,000 hour lamp life rating, energy savings up to 70 percent, unmatched lumen maintenance, and a faster ROI than LED, HPS or HID technology, EverLast Induction Lighting Technology meets

the Department of Energy’s high efficiency standards – making it today’s smartest choice for illuminating parks, parking lots, athletic courts, and other public areas. With EverLast 100w induction shoe box fixtures now illuminating the basketball courts and parking lots within Glen Park, the City of Encinitas and its residents alike are reaping the benefits. “The park looks anew and has something the other parks don’t, which is cool,” said Mr. Smith. “A woman walking through the park the night of the installation stated, ‘It’s nice to be able to see again,’ which confirmed we made the right decision with EverLast.”

The first thing you learned as a new employee was “there is no right way, only the ED way.” This was a statement said and lived by one of ED’s oldest sons, Robert “Bob” Maiwald Sr. As ED enters into its 62nd year of business, Bob was a huge part of shaping what ED is today. Bob passed away on September 8, 2009 after a long battle with cancer. Although he may be gone, he will live in the hearts of everyone who worked with Bob as a man who lived life to its fullest. Bob gave 110% every time he came to work and expected…no, demanded the same from everyone else. Bob exemplified the “ED way.” Bob was one of ED’s first employees. He began his employment on October 9, 1953. Bob started out as a driver. As a young 24 year old man, Bob would work hard at his job doing whatever was asked of him. Bob would take 14 year old Chet Lehmann with him on deliveries to “show him the ropes” and of course buy him an ice cream cone at the end of the route. Soon Bob was learning the warehouse, gaining product knowledge and being the “go to” guy. Bob was ED’s computer before there were computers. He knew prod-

Robert “Bob” Maiwald Sr. uct and pricing like no one else. Eventually Bob was promoted to outside sales where he excelled at creating relationships with many of our customers we still do business with today. Bob’s final promotion happened in the early 1980’s to Vice President. This well deserved promotion had Bob overseeing the sales and warehouse operations of the company. Since Bob came up through all the ranks, you could not fool our new VP (which became his nickname). Bob knew how long the routes took, where material went, how much material there should be on the shelves, the names of all our customers and what they bought, manually checked pricing on every invoice and much,

much, more. In managing people, Bob wanted your best. If you didn’t bring your best, Bob would have a chat with you about it. It would be a one-sided conversation and yes, you were the one listening. One minute you’d get your butt chewed out then the next minute he’d ask you how the family was doing. VP was tough but fair. There were no favorites. VP would speak his mind to anyone including Tyke and Chet. In the end, Bob’s goal was to make ED the best electrical wholesaler. Without question, Bob Maiwald Sr. succeeded. On December 31, 1993 Bob retired from ED. During his retirement, Bob enjoyed his two biggest passions…his family and cars. He loved working on cars, building cars, driving cars…you get the idea. During his employment at ED, Bob was instrumental in starting the San Jose Roadster Club. If the club had a roadster run you could be guaranteed one thing, Bob Maiwald would be there. Since the club’s inception, there have been 43 roadster runs. Bob has attended, yep, 43 roadster runs. No one else in the club can make that claim. Bob enjoyed this passion with his son’s Kevin, Bobby (BJ) and Ronnie (Ronnie and BJ worked at ED at some point in time with BJ retiring from the company in 2004). Bob’s grandson Jon (who worked at ED Gilroy) got into the act and is currently racing competively. When Bob wasn’t spending time with his boys and his cars, he was enjoying the company of his bride Marilyn. Bob enjoyed being busy and retirement was not going to slow him down. Unfortunately Marilyn became ill and passed away. After Marilyn’s passing, Bob continued to work hard with his boys and made sure the family was taken care of. Bob’s goal was to be the best husband, father and grandfather he could be. Without question, Bob Maiwald Sr. succeeded. Shortly after, Bob decided it was time to get back to work. In 1999 Bob was welcomed back to the very family he helped build. Times had changed. Computers ran things Bob used to take care of manually. Did that phase Bob? Absolutely not! In typical Bob Maiwald fashion he rolled up his sleeves and learned the system. Bob was running jobs and making sure profits were being made. Bob gave his usual 110% each day even as he fought his battle with cancer. He became the ED Historian. Anything you wanted to know about ED, he would gladly share. Bob Maiwald Sr. was a man who loved ED, loved the people of ED, loved his family and friends and loved life. He expected nothing more from anyone than what he expected from himself. On the outside he gave the perception of a tough, iron fisted SOB but in reality he was a kind hearted, warm and loving individual that wanted the best for everyone. That’s what drove Bob Maiwald Sr., to be the best. Without question, Bob Maiwald Sr. succeeded.

Practical Eco Lighting Aug 28, 2009

Induction Street Lighting Evolved I posted an item a few weeks ago about induction lighting with a video that explains the technology. Click here to see that post. Everlast Lighting now has its newest generation of Cobra Head fixtures (the ones you often see on street lights) which is exciting on many levels. Energy savings are incredible at about 50-70 percent lower than the typical metal halide bulbs. Lamp life is the next big benefit. At 100,000 hours you're looking at 5 times the life of a metal halide - or more. So, if it runs for 12 hours per day, every day, it will last for 23 years before someone has to get the bucket truck out to go up and replace the bulb. Light quality is also a major benefit. They bulbs put out a light at 5000 Kelvin and 85 CRI, which is much whiter than other street lights and enables clearer vision, rendering colors more like natural sunlight does. Some of the major improvements in this new type III fixture include a lightweight polycarbonate housing for better durability, a specular reflector optimized for induction lamp geometry, an integrated heat sink system for extended life, an acrylic lens with Type III, medium throw prescription and an electronic ballast with flicker free instant re-strike. It also includes a ballast that can dim to 50% power for greater energy savings. So while LED lights at street level are making headlines everywhere for now, their inherent weaknesses like low usable light output, overstated longevity, pin-point bright spots, sensitivity to heat and high cost will surely impede their wider implementation. Meanwhile, the recent improvements in Induction lighting like their superior longevity, incredible lumen/watt efficiency and outstanding value will mean they start outshining LEDs, HIDs and all other types of lights for a wide range of applications. See the full spec on the new Everlast cobra head lights here.

Induction Lighting Explained Everlast Induction lights offer incredible return on investment, energy savings and a superior light source for almost any application. The bulbs last an incredible 100,000 hours while using 50-55% less energy than a comparable Metal Halide bulb. The light emitted is also a "full spectrum" light which means the color of the light is more similar to sunlight.

Full Spectrum Contributes to Award ALA Members Exhibit at Winning Retrofit at UC Davis LIGHTFAIR International 2009

F

ull Spectrum Solutions, Inc., recently installed nearly 400 induction stepdimming fixtures as part of an awardwinning parking garage lighting design retrofit at the University of California, Davis (UC Davis). In partnership with the California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) and its Smart Lighting Initiative, UC Davis replaced preexisting high pressure sodium (HPS) fixtures with new, high efficiency lighting sources using activity sensors that reduce lighting levels when no one is occupying the parking facility. The estimated annual energy savings for the four parking structures at UC Davis is $77,127, based on the discounted university utilities rate of nine cents per kilowatt-hour. (Maintenance savings are not included in this estimate.) In June, the Facilities Management Program at UC Davis was awarded the Energy Efficiency Partnership Program,

EverLast® Smart Fixtures Outshine HPS and LED At one time High Pressure Sodium lights (HPS) were the market’s most cost-effective solution for commercial outdoor lighting. More recently, there was an industry consensus that solid-state LEDs did HPS one better by eliminating the poor, yellowish light quality while playing an increasingly important role in energy reduction programs. Patented EverLast® Induction Technology by Full Spectrum Solutions has solved previous technological setbacks of HPS and LED technology. With virtually maintenance-free 100,000 hour lamp life rating, energy savings up to 70% over HID sources, unmatched lumen maintenance, and twist-lock photocell for automatic on/off control, the EverLast® Cobra Head Smart Fixtures are today’s undisputable choice for illuminating freeways, highways, secondary roads, off-street areas and parking structures.

City of Encinitas Installs EverLast® Induction Light Fixtures to Enhance Public Safety in Glen Park By CCPRcomp Created 07/29/2009 - 12:10

JACKSON, MI – July 29, 2009 – With public safety being a key concern for park supervisors everywhere, City of Encinitas, CA Park Supervisor, Terry Smith, left nothing to chance when it came time to replace the existing high pressure sodium (HPS) fixtures in Glen Park, which is one of the oldest parks in the city. Terry contracted John Quart, co-founder of Quallight Efficiency Corp., to replace a single light pole that was knocked over by a tree during a storm. After evaluating the damaged light fixture, Mr. Quart recommended that the City of Encinitas upgrade all the light fixtures in Glen Park to EverLast® Induction Lighting 100w Shoe Box fixtures. “The previous lighting fixtures had been in place for about 25 years, so we quickly decided it was time for a change,” commented Mr. Smith. “The quality of light produced by the EverLast induction fixtures is significantly better than the former HPS fixtures. Glen Park is a high profile park right next to the beach, so it’s important that our residents and park visitors feel safe at night. The EverLast fixtures create that sense of security.”

In addition to public safety, energy-efficiency and maintenance were other main factors Mr. Smith took into consideration when deciding to swap out all the HPS acorn light fixtures in Glen Park with EverLast® 100w Induction Shoe Box fixtures. “High pressure sodium bulbs typically burn out after 15,000 hours, and it costs the city time and money to replace them. With EverLast’s 10-year warranty on the lamp, ballast and fixture, the City of Encinitas will see a large decrease in maintenance costs,” stated Mr. Quart of Quallight Efficiency Corp. “We’ve calculated that Glen Park will also see a 44% reduction in annual lighting costs due to the switch to EverLast fixtures.” With a virtually maintenance free 100,000 hour lamp life rating, energy savings up to 70 percent, unmatched lumen maintenance, and a faster ROI than LED, HPS or HID technology, EverLast® Induction Lighting Technology meets the Department of Energy’s high efficiency standards – making it today’s smartest choice for illuminating parks, parking lots, athletic courts, and other public areas. With EverLast® 100w induction shoe box fixtures now illuminating the basketball courts and parking lots within Glen Park, the City of Encinitas and its residents alike are reaping the benefits. “The park looks anew and has something the other parks don’t, which is cool,” said Mr. Smith. “A woman walking through the park the night of the installation stated, ‘It’s nice to be able to see again,’ which confirmed we made the right decision with EverLast.” EverLast® Induction Lighting is a product of Full Spectrum Solutions, Inc.

Vintage-Style Acorn Induction Walkway Light Fixture from EverLast® Illuminate Walkways and Public Areas with Classic Early Americana Elegance Jackson, MI, July 18, 2009 --(PR.com)-- A revolution is occurring in outdoor lighting for budget-minded towns and cities across the United States. Until today, choosing an energy-efficient, low maintenance public area lighting solution meant having to sacrifice security and aesthetics. Now, with the availability of cost-saving EverLast® Acorn Walkway fixtures, municipalities, developers and property managers can have the latest in long-life, energy -saving lighting technology in a classic design reminiscent of vintage street lamps. The EverLast® Acorn Walkway fixture is the second installment in a new line consisting of five induction lighting fixtures being manufactured in Jackson, Michigan USA. The EverLast® Smart Light Series of fixtures are now rolling off the assembly line to complete orders already placed by municipalities, universities and federal agencies that are moving towards energy efficiency. Short to follow the Type III and V Acorn Walkway Fixtures will be an IP65 Rated Shoe Box Fixture, Step-Dimming Garage Fixture, and Acrylic High Bay. “With cost reduction being a top priority for government and industry these days, the EverLast Smart Light Series is the ideal solution to reduce energy expenditures and the cost of walkway, street and parking lot lighting maintenance,” said Todd Howland, VP of Sales and Marketing at EverLast® Induction Lighting. “The new EverLast Acorn Induction Type III and Type V Walkway Fixtures are a cost-effective retrofit to existing pole-mounted globe or acorn fixtures. In addition to the integration of the best quality and most efficient lamp system, the fixtures come with a water-clear, non-yellowing acrylic lens for superior optics.” The EverLast® Acorn Walkway Smart Light has two reflector options. The Type III reflector produces side-toside lighting, making fewer fixtures needed for illuminating sidewalks, walkways, and residential streets. The Type V reflector produces an equal amount of light in all directions, which is beneficial for walkways, parks, and campus areas that require all-over illumination.

To help reduce light pollution and light trespass, an optional perforated metal disk that fits in the refractor is available. The EverLast® Smart Light Series delivers energy savings of 50 – 70 percent over standard HPS and HID lighting, and provides brighter and more natural illumination for greater pedestrian safety in parks, malls, campuses and public areas of all kinds. EverLast® High Definition Induction Lighting technology provides excellent light uniformity and distribution due to enhanced optics design and a color temperature of 5000K and 85 CRI (color rendering index). With a remarkable lamp rating of 100,000 hours and step-dimming to 50 percent power, the EverLast® Smart Light Acorn Walkway fixture is quickly becoming “America’s Lighting Choice” among developers, architects, engineers and others involved in specifying, installing and maintaining public lighting. “Our patented EverLast induction light design enables us to offer buyers unmatched energy and maintenance savings,” Mr. Howland commented. “Coupled with a 10-year lamp and ballast warranty, the return on investment is quick, while the aesthetic payback is immediate.” EverLast® Smart Light Series are a product of Full Spectrum Solutions, Inc.

University of California in Davis Exemplifies Sustainability UC Davis wins 2009 Best Practice Award using EverLast Smart Light Technology UC Davis has been a leader in the movement toward energy sustainability for the past few years, and on June 22, 2009 they will be awarded the Energy Efficiency Partnership Program, 2009 Best Practice Award for their parking garage lighting design retrofit. The Facilities Management program at UC Davis will be presented the award at the UC/CSU/CCC Sustainability Conference at UC Santa Barbara. In partnership with CLTC, UC Davis replaced preexisting high pressure sodium (HPS) fixtures with EverLast® Induction step-dimming garage fixtures. This retrofit was conducted as part of CLTC’s Smart Lighting Initiative, an effort they have pursued over the past two years. This project utilizes high efficiency lighting sources using bi-level activity sensors that reduce lighting levels when no one is occupying the parking facility. EverLast fixtures are unique because they

integrate step-dimming with induction technology, enabling them to achieve 50-60 percent savings over current static approaches. Energy-efficiency and sustainability are top priorities for institutional and industrial buildings and cutting costs is essential. By using EverLast Induction garage lighting fixtures with bi-level occupancy sensors, the estimated annual energy savings for the four parking structures at UC Davis is $77,127, based on the discounted university utilities rate of nine cents per kilowatthour. (Maintenance savings are not included in this estimate.) “EverLast Induction Smart Lights with bi-level technology offers one of the most effective near-term opportunities for addressing our energy efficiency goals,” said Michael Siminovitch, Director of CLTC. UC Davis also recognizes that driver and pedestrian safety are key concerns

in parking area lighting design. Using motion sensor activated lighting that changes instantly from 50 percent to 100 percent upon changes in occupancy may heighten or increase the sense of security and safety within parking applications. Additionally, the high correlated color temperature 5000K white light source provides better visibility and color differentiation. EverLast Induction light fixtures complemented the UC Davis Smart Lighting Initiative well because they combine energy-efficient, induction lighting with bi-level sensor stepdimming technology for an added energy-savings. EverLast smart fixtures are today’s ideal technology for retrofitting existing parking structures on campuses, in shopping centers, and throughout urban city centers.

Smart Bi-level Parking Area Luminaires DEMONSTRATIONS Interactive Map Adura Wireless Controls Bi-level HID Wall Pack Smart Bi-level Parking Area Luminaires Smart Bi-level Stairwell Luminaire Cooper Halo LED Downlight IOLS LS-102 Daylighting Controller CONFERENCE INFO SUMMARY

Bi-level parking area luminaires that include intelligent controls for occupancy based light level adjustment represent the next step in energy-efficient parking area lighting. During vacant periods, the lights operate at 50% of their potential brightness. When motion is detected, the lights instantly adjust to 100% light output. When the lights are dimmed, in the garage, there is a significant reduction in energy use. Smart bi-level lighting also includes the use of an efficient source. When the controls and the source are combined, there is a significant savings potential of 40% or more. There are currently three bi-level smart parking area luminaire demonstration sites at UCSB. The Lot 18 parking structure is currently illuminated with 150W high pressure sodium (HPS) luminaires operating continuously, regardless of available daylight or garage occupancy. The top deck of the parking garage will be retrofitted with bi-level LED and induction area luminaires with integrated occupancy and photosensors. By retrofitting only a portion of the luminaires, facility personnel will be able to compare the light quality improvements between the broad spectrum sources and the existing HPS luminaires. Lower decks of this parking structure will be retrofitted with bi-level LED and induction luminaires. This demonstration will provide another excellent comparison between new and existing technologies. Interior bi- level induction luminaires will also feature wireless RF controls from Adura Technologies Wireless controls. These units will communicate via a wireless mesh network to a photosensor mounted on the exterior of the garage. This will allow perimeter luminaires to be extinguished when adequate daylight is available, without affecting interior luminaires wired on the same circuit. Lot 22, another multi-story campus parking structure, will receive smart bi-level fluorescent parking garage luminaires manufactured by Day-Brite|Capri|Omega.

Low maintenance, energy-efficiency and high quality means bottom-line savings and increased safety for workers frequently bothered by poor quality indoor lighting. In its continued effort to implement green technology in its manufacturing process, Yuengling® will continue working with Suncoast Solar Power and EverLast® to retrofit their 700,000 square foot Tampa Bay facility.


Induction Lighting - 100,000 Lamp Hours Monday, April 20th, 2009 I have read a lot about the plasma column lamps created by companies like Luxim and Ceravision - electrodeless, high CRI, very efficient, and high lumens per watt. The sources use radio waves to excite the argon and metal salts in the arc tube to a plasma - in an electrodeless situation. The idea of the magnetic induction moved into fluorescent technology a while ago, yielding a 100,000 hour fluorescent lamp. There are several companies marketing products in this fluorescent technology - it has a high CRI (94+ in most cases), power efficient, and with good lumen maintenance (you know, given the lack of electrodes and all). The fluorescent induction technology uses the UV light that is returned to the ground state in the plasma material to excite fluorescent phosphors in the lamp. stillcompanies use Mercury marketing (yeah yeah, Iaknow) like the regular fluorescent OneThey of the product is Everlast Inducprocess, just a different to excite Onemade of the companies marketing a tion Lighting - theway sales guys it. there some videos (thanks product is Everlast Lighting thethem sales explains guys there amade some videos for doing this,Induction guys!), and one-of bit about the (thanks for doing this, guys!), and one of them explains a bit about the induction technology. Do you remember the article I posted a while ago about the guy (Richard Box) who created an installation of fluorescent lamps just stuck into the ground under a high power transmission line? The fluorescent tubes all just glowed like they had power - the process of the magnetic induction fluorescent is similar - an electromagnetic field excites the phosphors. The companies selling the fluorescent induction products offer dimmable versions of the sources - have you designed any lighting systems using this technology? Have you tried any of these products from any company marketing the fluorescent induction lamps?

Bright Ideas

New-and-improved technologies help companies save on energy

costs, make work environments user-friendly, and reduce electrical grid loads. The Right Technology for the Right Problem

Energy-efficient lighting is what the California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) on the University of California (UC) Davis campus is all about. Established through a joint effort of the California Energy Commission and UC Davis to stimulate the research, development, and application of energy-efficient lighting, CLTC is part of the Design Department in the College of Letters and Science. CLTC’s Director of Engineering, Bruce Pelton says, “We use the university and college system as a test bed. Right now, we’re using four parking lots on campus to test three lighting systems. Moving towards white light, we’ve conducted trials on bi-level metal hydrate, LED, and induction lamps. We’re technology neutral. The trick for us is finding the right technology for the right problem.” According to Pelton, the State of California is looking at energy efficiency and “is outlawing low-efficient light sources. It will soon demand that outdoor fixtures are controllable.” Working with local utilities, Pelton says they paid one-third of the cost for the roll out of the 1500 induction lamps for purchase and installation. “The utilities like the long-life property of the induction lamps with the energy reduction,” he adds. “It makes more sense to conserve and delay the need for new energy sources. The utilities are paid for what they produce and what they conserve. They will put a quartermillion dollars into this project.” What’s being tested at UC Davis can easily extend to the 11 campuses in the UC system, state universities, community colleges, and state buildings. “The State of California is one of the largest landlords in the world,” says Pelton. And he loves the 100,000-hour life of induction lamps. “As they use 4,380 hours per year, that means in excess of 20 years,” says Pelton. “We’ve never had to deal with anything that lasts this long.” He also loves how the lighting is intelligently controlled, and spoke of proximity detection—lighting at night in public places where an area with full brightness broadcasts that someone or something has been there. White light and proximity detection “effectively extends a police department’s scene. So with induction lighting, we’re enhancing security,” says Pelton. Although he sees a growing future for LED lamps, he says that out in the world at nighttime they are a problem because, with the efficiency of LED’s, it’s hard to control the distribution of the light. In addition, since induction lighting is currently one-third to one-half the cost of LED’s, it makes sense for the University to move towards induction lighting for exterior lighting. For parking structure needs, Pelton is particularly pleased with induction lamps, and recently rolled out with 1500 EverLast 85-watt step-dimming fixtures from Full Spectrum Solutions Inc. of Jackson, MI. The campus and the utility are happy with the power offset—a 40% reduction in energy use. The new EverLast gives a lamp rating of 100,000 hours, and Full Spectrum Solutions claims energy savings can reach 60%. The EverLast fixtures have unlimited on/off cycles and instant restrike features, allowing for occupancy sensors or frequent switching with no effect on lamp life. With the long lamp life and lower ballast losses, Joelle Kolhagen, Full Spectrum’s marketing director, says, “We see EverLast making the largest impact anywhere that the lifetime cost of lighting fixtures is considered.” Pelton adds that the switching is good, as is the transition from low to high levels of light. He says that the University is satisfied with the cost/value proposition of induction lighting. However, he doesn’t recommend it for a retrofit project, especially when adding a proximity detector, as that demands even more wiring.
