Togus VA Center | Augusta, MEW1PL18 | W1PL36
Togus, Maine VA Center facilities staff decided to save energy while improving lighting quality and versatility for roadways and parking areas, by using Magnaray® 106 watt, dual head twin T5 lamped units to replace 250 watt HPS shoe box luminaires.
Magnaray® 106 watt dual head units now provide reduced glare, “white light” resulting in better visual acuity (see-ability), with lamps lasting longer (up to 48,000+ hours) than LED systems. Magnaray®units maintain 90% lumen output for 90% lamp life, while LED’s provide 70% lumen output at 36,000 actual hours.
- High Color Rendering 4100K sources provide much better light quality for drivers and pedestrians’ safety and security.
- Lower light pollution from twin T5 lamps
- Maintenance cost reductions are also very substantial, saving thousands of dollars over the 20-25 year useful life. The $10 lamp will need changing in 10-12 years, while ballasts have normal 100,000 hours useful life.
Magnaray® –– less expensive to purchase, operate, and maintain than LED, HID, Induction, or any other source known today.
