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.
“The EverLast 200 watt lights certainly produce as much light as the previous 400 watt lights did, and the light itself is white, which everyone here really likes compared to the previous HPS 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.
