The hospital also recently installed 24-watt EvoLucia UTL-1 utility spotlights on the grounds to improve visibility at night. The spotlights replaced 250-watt metal halide light sources as well, resulting in approximately 90 percent reduction in energy use for those applications.

The new EvoLucia LED lights are completely maintenance-free, requiring no lamp replacements for more than 12 years of nighttime use, dramatically reducing the high constant expense of replacing lamps and ballasts in older technologies.

"The new LED lamps are more cost-efficient, but more than that, they will improve the security of our campus by providing longer-lasting coverage and cleaner, whiter lighting for improved visibility at night," said Sarasota Memorial Public Safety Director Mickey Watson. "Our older lights required considerably more maintenance and subsequent costs for replacement parts."

Many cities, campuses and corporations throughout the country are actively retrofitting high-watt, high-intensity discharge ("HID"), incandescent and even fluorescent lights with LEDs. Sunovia recently announced the installation of EvoLucia LED cobra head lights at Marine Corps base Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, N.C. and throughout the town of Fairview, TX.

"The cost and energy-saving benefits of LED lighting are undeniable," said Sunovia Director of Sales and Marketing Ed Kramer. "LED lighting is no longer the future of lighting; the technology is here now, and Sunovia is advancing it every day to deliver products that are unmatched in performance, quality and durability."
