Pensacola, Fla. - Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southeast’s Public Works Department (PWD) Pensacola completed the construction of an LED street and parking lot light project on Jan. 10 providing savings of $120,000 in utility costs each year at Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola.

“The lighting upgrades were the result of a $1.9 million American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funded project. Not only does this project save energy, it also provides safe, secure and efficient lighting significantly improving visibility for drivers and pedestrians on the installation,” said NAS Pensacola’s Installation Energy Manager Sabrina Williams.

The work included the replacement of over 900 high and low pressure sodium light fixtures with brighter, more efficient LED lights.

The project’s energy savings will make significant contributions toward the mandated requirements of the Energy Independence Security Act of 2007 and Executive Order 13423 which require specific reductions in energy in federal facilities of at least 30 percent, by fiscal year 2015.

The LED lighting upgrade contract was awarded in December of 2012.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act was signed into law by Congress in 2009 and is more commonly known as the “stimulus package.” The goal of the act is to create jobs and spur economic activity by investing in long-term growth through tax cuts, funding entitlement programs and funding federal contracts, grants and loans.
