MANITOWOC, Wis., Jan. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Orion Energy Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: OESX) (), a provider of enterprise-grade LED lighting and energy project solutions, today announced the receipt of $3.6 million of award notifications to install Orion's LED lighting systems in two U.S. government facilities. The projects are expected to commence in fiscal year 2019.
Orion is replacing legacy T5, T8, compact fluorescent and HID lighting systems with its energy-efficient LED lighting platforms and controls, in support of the customers' environmental, energy efficiency and cost savings goals. The awards follow several projects completed for the same government entities over the recent past.
Orion CEO, Mike Altschaefl, commented, "We are honored to expand our support of our Government's energy efficiency and facility lighting goals with our LED lighting solutions. We believe these follow-on projects underscore the performance, return on investment and customer responsiveness that is unique to the Orion Lighting organization. Utilizing our solutions, these customers expect to reduce annual energy usage for lighting by approximately 50% per facility while also delivering much improved illumination. These savings should allow the full recoupment of all project costs in just a few years, followed by two decades of continued savings and high performance.
"As a U.S.-based manufacturer, we have built strong working relationships with several government customers and are in ongoing dialogues regarding how we can address their current and future needs with our attentive service and high-quality, made-in-the-U.S.A. products.”
