Orion Energy Systems Inc., a Manitowoc-based manufacturer and marketer of LED lighting and energy project solutions, received a $3.6 million contract to install the company’s LED lighting products in two U.S. government facilities.

Orion will replace legacy T5, T8, compact fluorescent and HID lighting systems with its energy-efficient lighting platforms and controls. The installation will help the customers reach their environmental, energy efficiency and cost savings goals, says Orion CEO Mike Altschaefl. Orion previously completed other projects for the clients.

“We believe these follow-on projects underscore the performance, return on investment and customer responsiveness that is unique to the Orion Lighting organization,” Altschaefl said in a release. “Utilizing our solutions, these customers expect to reduce annual energy usage for lighting by approximately 50 percent 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.”

Orion’s products include LED solid state lighting and high-intensity fluorescent lighting.
