Revolution Lighting Technologies, Inc., Stamford, CT, recently secured LED lighting contracts totaling approximately $4 million, including school districts within New Jersey, Connecticut and Rhode Island.

Revolution Lighting operating divisions Energy Source and Tri-State LED provided turnkey services that began with a comprehensive assessment to establish the most energy efficient program, installing Revolution Lighting's high performance LED tubes and Eco thin panel fixtures. These LED solutions reduce lighting energy use by more than 60% while increasing light output for enhanced safety and higher quality learning environments for students. Combined with long operating life and Revolution’s 10-year warranty, the systems provide significant long-term operational and maintenance cost savings, the company said in a release.

Revolution Lighting offers a broad line of LED solutions including tubes, thin panels, troffers, high bays, area flood lighting and wall pack fixtures to address the various lighting requirements throughout primary and secondary education facilities. Applications in schools include hallways, classrooms, administrative areas, support spaces, and cafeterias, in addition to exterior applications such as parking, pedestrian walkways, and security and emergency lighting.

“These recent program wins, coupled with previous 2016 LED retrofit project awards among primary and higher education institutions, including Lehman College and Des Moines University, exceed $20 million, demonstrating our leadership in this important market,” said Robert V. LaPenta, CEO and chairman of Revolution Lighting. “We anticipate several additional awards near term in the Connecticut, Boston and New Jersey school systems as the school boards recognize the health, learning and financial benefits of LED lighting.”
