Before/After Exterior LightingFluorescent technology designed to reduce energy consumption, costs by 50 percent in outdoor applications

Orion Energy Systems Inc.  was awarded first place in the lighting category at the Plant Engineering Product of the Year Awards held Monday.

Introduced in 2009, Orion’s exterior lighting uses fluorescent technology to reduce energy consumption and costs by 50 percent when compared to high-intensity discharge lighting traditionally used to illuminate parking lots and other outdoor areas after dark.

In a reader vote by plant managers and other Plant Engineering magazine readers, Orion’s exterior technology was selected over Cooper Lighting’s LED exterior fixture for the gold award. Winners were announced in an awards ceremony during the publication’s annual manufacturing summit in Chicago.

“We’re honored to receive a top award from Plant Engineering magazine for the second year in a row,” said Orion CEO Neal Verfuerth. “The fact that the publication’s readers selected our Apollo® solar light pipe as the Grand Award winner last year and our energy efficient exterior platform this year validates that plant managers recognize Orion as the energy-efficiency technology leader.”  Click here to view entire press release.
