“Energy Focus considers it a true honor and privilege to serve the U.S. Navy,” said James Tu, chairman & CEO of Energy Focus. “This contract reflects our continuing success and commitment to innovation to help improve the Navy’s sustainability profiles and the lives of the people serving in the fleet. It also demonstrates our strengthening leadership in providing advanced LED lighting systems for world-class organizations with mission-critical facilities such as the U.S. Navy.”
Tu continued, “This contract award reflects the U.S. Navy’s continuing commitment to TLEDs as the superior format for lighting retrofit applications and its confidence in Energy Focus to provide the most reliable and compelling TLED solutions.”
Since 2007, Energy Focus has been committed to elevating the energy efficiency of the U.S. Navy fleet as well as improving the living conditions of sailors by eliminating hazardous materials from its lighting systems and enabling it to focus on more important tasks than lighting maintenance. Since then, Energy Focus has installed approximately 650,000 lighting products including TLEDs, waterline security lights, explosion-proof globes and berth lights, saving more than four million gallons of fuel and 200,000 man-hours in lighting maintenance annually.
