Tri-State LED a Greenwich, Connecticut-based division of Revolution Lighting Technologies, reported that it completed an LED lighting retrofit for the Medford Fire Department of Medford, New York USA. Tri-State LED retrofitted all three buildings of the department including the main garages, a mechanic shop, and district meeting room. The retrofit project involved the complete replacement of existing fluorescent lighting to LED lighting.
According to the company, the new LED lighting will reduce the department’s energy use for lighting by over 65%. The energy savings translates into a return on investment in just two years.
Tri-State managed the project from start to finish. The firm first performed detailed testing and evaluation of LED solutions, including Revolution Lighting’s LED tubes. After the testing and evaluation phases of the project, Tri-State LED worked closely with Medford Fire Department to ensure that the LED technology installation would not interfere at all with the day-to-day operation of the department. In addition to performing the testing and installation, Tri-State LED helped devise the project scope, develop a budget for the project, and select final materials and products for installation.

The company points out that the retrofit delivers superior efficiency, longevity, and light output. Revolution Lighting says its LED tubes used in the installation last three times longer than conventional lighting and have a rated lamp life of more than 70,000 hours. Revolution Lighting backs the LED tubes with a 10-year warranty to ensure long-term maintenance and energy savings.
“Tri-State LED was a tremendous partner, helping our department exceed critical energy efficiency goals, seamlessly managing all aspects of the project that allowed our department to continue operating without interruption,” said Charlie Jagde, chairman of the board of Fire Commissioners, Medford Fire Department. “The adoption of LED lighting throughout our facilities will not only drive operational and maintenance savings with a quick return on investment but provide greater light output for safety and well-being for our towns first responders.”
