California State Chico Selects Induction Lighting for Campus Upgrade: Jackson-based EverLast induction lighting has been selected by California State University at Chico for a campus-wide upgrade. Chico is the second-oldest campus in the twenty-three-campus California State University system and home to more than16,000 students. The university has adopted a strong sustainability initiative and received several honors based on their “green” efforts. The university hired GreenTech of Ventura, Calif. to seek out a commercial lighting system that would meet their facility codes while improving illumination, and significantly lowering energy costs. The chose the EverLast Aluminum High Bay fixture. Said GreenTech president Dan Grumney: “The fixtures are able to cut energy consumption by 60 percent while lowering maintenance costs, and providing a long life span. GreenTech insists on delivering the most energy efficient lighting solutions to the West Coast, and we often utilize the EverLast fixtures based on their quality and compatibility with even the most demanding specification criteria.” In the summer of 2012, the university moved forward with 250 watt High Bays and 55 watt energy efficient induction Contemporary walkway fixtures and installed them in two gymnasiums, and along their campus walkways. The EverLast 250 watt Aluminum High Bay and 55 watt Contemporary Walkway fixtures provide light with a more natural, high color rendition and unlike traditional HID fixtures are “instant on” and easily dimmed. Furthermore, induction uses up to 60 percent less energy and has an unmatched life span of up to 100,000 hours. EverLast Lighting is a sister company of Full Spectrum Solutions Inc. and has quickly grown into the leading manufacturer of energy-efficient lighting solutions for roadway, parking structure, facility and area lighting applications.
