Navy saves millions of dollars replacing fluorescent lights with LED Lighting from Energy Focus

Secretary of the United States Navy, Ray Mabus, was excited to reveal that he is helping the Navy save millions of dollars, more than 150 million dollars to be exact, and is saving 3% of fuel costs per year for fleets being converted over to LED lighting by Energy Focus.

“Energy Focus products have now been installed on more than half of the ships & subs of the Active U.S. fleet,” said Dave Bina, Energy Focus Business Development Manager, Maritime and Navy business. “Based on the standard budgets for each ship class, full conversion to our LED products should be complete in next 5 years, Bina said

Energy Focus has partnered with the U.S. Navy since 2006 to develop LED lighting that would replace outdated lighting on ships that help the Navy save money and become more fuel efficient. LED technology by Energy Focus is helping the ships increase fuel efficiency and is creating a cash savings that the Navy will use for other expenses with the money that it is saving by retrofitting ships with Energy Focus LED lights. Mabus also said the savings also helps the Navy offset severe funding cuts and has also provided the Navy with more flexibility in positioning and managing its fleets around the world among other benefits. Maybus talks about this in a recent article Click here to read. 

The Secretary has come up with a very easy to understand ROI calculator.

In the simplest of terms, if the Fleet were to convert all of the diesel powered ships from Fluorescent to LED:

Using a 3% fuel Savings = ($150mil) in savings annually

* This is only fuel savings. There is another 2X additional savings in maintenance cost (reduction in ship’s force) using Energy Focus LED’s
