                                           everlasting life span and long lamp life, high color rendition, instant re-strike features, and a wide range of
                                           wattages and fixture styles. The long life span of EverLast helps businesses ensure safety standards by
                                           eliminating frequent bulb changes in difficult-to-reach places, such as in high ceilings, ab ove machinery,
                                           tunnels, warehouses, stadiums, etc.., thus alleviating the potential danger of injuries and accidents. With
                                           EverLast, lighting maintenance has never been so easy.

                                           With a rated lamp-life of up to 100,000 hours, there is no question that EverLast is designed for durability.
                                           The longevity of this lighting technology occurs because it is essentially a fluorescent lamp without
                                           electrodes. With the absence of electrodes, the lamp relies on the fundamental principles of gas
                                           discharge and electromagnetic induction to produce light. The everlasting durability of this lighting is also
                                           ideal for low-temperature environments, such as walk-in freezers. Using a specialized bulb for low
                                           temperature applications, EverLast can operate at temperatures as low as -40° Fahrenheit.

                                           On average, maintenance efforts for industrial fixtures account for 12-14 percent of the total lifetime
                                           fixture costs and can be all but eliminated with this unique lighting solution. On top of the maintenance
                                           savings, EverLast also helps businesses by cutting lighting electricity costs by up to 60 percent over HID
                                           sources.

                                           EverLast also provides unheard of stability with its high-lumen maintenance of up to 70 percent over the
                                           first 60,000 hours. With a 90+ CRI and 5000 Kelvin, the EverLast HD Induction Fixtures replicate natural
                                           daylight, providing superior visual clarity. Another excellent feature of EverLast is the fact that they
                                           operate at temperatures 800° cooler than HID sources cutting back expensive HVAC usage. EverLast
                                           Induction fixtures have unlimited on/off cycles and instant re-strike features, allowing for occupancy
                                           sensors or frequent switching with no effect on lamp life.

                                           electrodes. With the absence of electrodes, the lamp relies on the fundamental principles of gas
                                           discharge and electromagnetic induction to produce light. The everlasting durability of this lighting is also
                                           ideal for low-temperature environments, such as walk-in freezers. Using a specialized bulb for low
                                           temperature applications, EverLast can operate at temperatures as low as -40° Fahrenheit.

                                           On average, maintenance efforts for industrial fixtures account for 12-14 percent of the total lifetime
                                           fixture costs and can be all but eliminated with this unique lighting solution. On top of the maintenance
                                           savings, EverLast also helps businesses by cutting lighting electricity costs by up to 60 percent over HID
                                           sources.

                                           EverLast also provides unheard of stability with its high-lumen maintenance of up to 70 percent over the
                                           first 60,000 hours. With a 90+ CRI and 5000 Kelvin, the EverLast HD Induction Fixtures replicate natural
                                           daylight, providing superior visual clarity. Another excellent feature of EverLast is the fact that they
                                           operate at temperatures 800° cooler than HID sources cutting back expensive HVAC usage. EverLast
                                           Induction fixtures have unlimited on/off cycles and instant re-strike features, allowing for occupancy
                                           sensors or frequent switching with no effect on lamp life.

About 30 years ago a new lighting technology became available without much fanfare, but it only gained popularity after being
re introduced in the 1990s. Induction lighting technology, similar to fluorescent lighting, "offers a life span of up to 100.000
hours, outlasting 100 incandescent bulbs, five HID lights, or live typical fluorescent lamp changes," according to information
from Full Spectrum Solutions. With induction lighting's obvious benefits ofa long lifespan and Httle-to-no maintenance, are
college campuses rushing out to switch over?


How It Works
induction lighting is based off the principle Unit a gas discharge through magnetism can produce light. Basically, mercury vapor,
located in the discharge vessel, is excited with the creation ofa magnetic field inside the lamp vessel, producing invisible ultra
violet light. Visible light is then produced when the ultraviolet light passes through a phosphor coating on the surface of the
tube. There is no electrical connection within the bulb, thus the generation of light is achieved through electromagnetic induc
tion.


Benefits and Drawbacks
According to Dae llur, HID product manager, strategic marketing for Philips Lighting Company, the lack of electrodes means,
"the system's life is much longer than conventional light sources. If the system components are designed properly, in terms of
thermal management, then the system average raied life will be about 100.000 hours." This long life translates into lower main
tenance, a benefit to colleges who often recoup their initial costs through time from use of these lighting systems. Often, the only
drawback to these systems is the initial cost, so it has been important for colleges and cities using induction lighting to show the
rate of return. "Sacramento Municipal District docs a lot of case studies, and they were trying to show the payback in the long
life." commented Steve Beede, market development manager at l.utron. "They were showing the energy efficiency and the long
life. It does have a high price lo it right now, and they are trying to show the benefits in the payback in the life of the bulb."
JoeMe Kolflagen, marketing director for Full Spectrum Solutions, added to that point. "Its maintenance free: you're not going to
have to mess with it once it is up. There aren't the maintenance charges of someone going out and having to change your bulbs."
she explained.


Induction lighting technology has other benefits. Induction lighting can be turned on and off without waiting, like a typical hai-
ide fixture. Philip's QL induction lighting system "is instant on/instant restrike, which is helpful during power outages," stated
1 lur. Most induction lighting systems also have very good optics. "If replicales natural daylight, so it isn't glowy orange," said
Kolhagen. The phosphors are similar to a traditional fluoresceul system's, providing great white light of CR! 80 with a choice of
color temperalures. Beede also mentioned that an induction light puts out more lumens than an individual fluorescent light, al
though "a typical fluorescent fixture will have six lights compared to the one incandescent light in its fixture/"

Where It Works
According to Beede. induction lighting operates well at a range of temperatures, including lower temperatures. He suggested.
"These systems work great for outdoor applications, places where you don't want to be doing a lot of maintenance. This in
cludes places where you want to have a good deal oflight, like parking garages."


Kolhagen noted that Full Spectrum Solutions works with the University of California, Davis, which has recently been redoing
some parking garages. "We have different options for controlling [our induction lighting systems]." she stated. "Some of the
fixtures have daylight sensors so that the light is off during the day." The fixtures installed in (he UC Davis parking garages can
be dimmed to 50 percent when no one is using the facility. The lighting returns to 100 percent when someone comes in. "The
parking fi.xlures do go down to 50 percent, so you still have the light for safety issues. At 50 percent, the light is still pretty
bright,'' she added.

Bright Ideas               New-and-improved technologies help companies save on energy
costs, make work environments user-friendly, and reduce electrical grid loads.

The Right Technology for the Right Problem
Energy-efficient lighting is what the California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) on the University of
California (UC) Davis campus is all about. Established through a joint effort of the California Energy
Commission and UC Davis to stimulate the research, development, and application of energy-efficient
lighting, CLTC is part of the Design Department in the College of Letters and Science. CLTC’s Director of
Engineering, Bruce Pelton says, “We use the university and college system as a test bed. Right now,
we’re using four parking lots on campus to test three lighting systems. Moving towards white light, we’ve
conducted trials on bi-level metal hydrate, LED, and induction lamps. We’re technology neutral. The trick
for us is finding the right technology for the right problem.” 

According to Pelton, the State of California is looking at energy efficiency and “is outlawing low-efficient
light sources. It will soon demand that outdoor fixtures are controllable.”

Working with local utilities, Pelton says they paid one-third of the cost for the roll out of the 1500 induction
lamps for purchase and installation. “The utilities like the long-life property of the induction lamps with the
energy reduction,” he adds. “It makes more sense to conserve and delay the need for new energy
sources. The utilities are paid for what they produce and what they conserve. They will put a quarter-
million dollars into this project.”

What’s being tested at UC Davis can easily extend to the 11 campuses in the UC system, state
universities, community colleges, and state buildings. “The State of California is one of the largest
landlords in the world,” says Pelton.

And he loves the 100,000-hour life of induction lamps. “As they use 4,380 hours per year, that means in
excess of 20 years,” says Pelton. “We’ve never had to deal with anything that lasts this long.”

He also loves how the lighting is intelligently controlled, and spoke of proximity detection—lighting at night
in public places where an area with full brightness broadcasts that someone or something has been
there. White light and proximity detection “effectively extends a police department’s scene. So with
induction lighting, we’re enhancing security,” says Pelton.

Although he sees a growing future for LED lamps, he says that out in the world at nighttime they are a
problem because, with the efficiency of LED’s, it’s hard to control the distribution of the light. In addition,
since induction lighting is currently one-third to one-half the cost of LED’s, it makes sense for the
University to move towards induction lighting for exterior lighting.

For parking structure needs, Pelton is particularly pleased with induction lamps, and recently rolled out
with 1500 EverLast 85-watt step-dimming fixtures from Full Spectrum Solutions Inc. of Jackson, MI. The
campus and the utility are happy with the power offset—a 40% reduction in energy use. The new
EverLast gives a lamp rating of 100,000 hours, and Full Spectrum Solutions claims energy savings can
reach 60%. The EverLast fixtures have unlimited on/off cycles and instant restrike features, allowing for
occupancy sensors or frequent switching with no effect on lamp life. With the long lamp life and lower
ballast losses, Joelle Kolhagen, Full Spectrum’s marketing director, says, “We see EverLast making the
largest impact anywhere that the lifetime cost of lighting fixtures is considered.”

Pelton adds that the switching is good, as is the transition from low to high levels of light. He says that the
University is satisfied with the cost/value proposition of induction lighting. However, he doesn’t
recommend it for a retrofit project, especially when adding a proximity detector, as that demands even
more wiring.

                     Jackson, Mich. — Patented EverLast lighting technology from Full Spectrum Solutions is essentially a fluorescent lamp without
   LEED Guide        electrodes. With the absence of electrodes, the lamp relies on the fundamental principles of gas discharge and electromagnetic
   Cool Roofing      induction to produce light. With a lifespan of as many as 100,000 hours, this system can last longer than 100 incandescent, five HID,
   Sustainable       or five typical fluorescent lamp changes. EverLast induction fixtures provide light with a more natural, high color rendition and a

                     7 High-Performance Wall System

                     Moon Township, Pa. — The accel-E Steel Thermal Efficient Panel (S.T.E.P.) wall system combines the strength and performance of
                     cold-formed steel framing with the superior insulation properties of expanded polystyrene (EPS) using the exclusive Plastbau
                     manufacturing process. All steel used in the accel-E S.T.E.P. system is galvanized to industry standards to prevent rust. According to
                     the company, this technology virtually eliminates the transfer of temperature from one side of the framing component to the other
                     side. The result is a thermally efficient, high-performance building technology that is strong, lightweight, energy efficient and
                     economical.

http://www.edcmag.com/Articles/Feature_Article/BNP_GUID_9-5-2006_A_10000000000... 3/20/2009
 Full Spectrum Lighting is a privately held, 30-employee company that reports gross sales of $10 million.
The company has historically marketed Paralite, UltraLux and BlueMax table and floor lamps, notable for
producing natural light, in the retail sector. However, beginning in 2002, the company entered the
commercial market with a high-bay lamp and fixture.

The recently patented Everlast features a fluorescent lamp that is absent electrodes.

“[The lamp] will play a part in the reshaping of lighting warehouses and other commercial spaces,
including parking lots and roadways,” said Justin Baldwin, commercial sales manager.

The lamp’s electronic ballast operates at 200,000 kHz, a level that eliminates the bothersome, irregular
flickering of fluorescent tubes. Additionally, lamps will operate in temperatures ranging from –22°F to
130°F.

“These lamps produce near perfect color rendition that lasts the life of the lamp, and lumen maintenance
unaffected by continual on/off cycling,” Baldwin said. “Plus, lamps are dimmable in stages, or on a
progressive pattern to 50 percent of maximum output.

“We see EverLast making the largest impact anywhere that the lifetime cost of lighting fixtures are
considered. The technology will allow for businesses to become more competitive, and municipalities to
reduce their spending through decreased energy and maintenance costs,” he said.

 Ann Arbor Tries Out Solar, Wind Street Light
 The city of Ann Arbor is beginning to harness the wind and the sun to run its street lights.

 This particular light is on a pole at the entrance to Buhr Park on Packard Road.                                  GLITR Newsletter

 This light pole has a small wind generator at the top and two solar electric panels on the sides that provide     GLITR Friday, March 13, 2009
 electricity to charge batteries. These batteries operate a streetlight on the pole to illuminate the entrance
 drive to Buhr Park and Cobblestone Farm.
                                                                                                                   GLITR Thursday, March 12,

 This renewable-energy powered light is not hooked up to Detroit Edison and runs 100 percent on sun and
 wind energy.

 This hybrid wind-solar light represents a partnership between the City of Ann Arbor and the University of
 Michigan’s Sustainable Design Research Laboratory within the Taubman College of Architecture and
 Urban Planning.                                                                                                   GLITR Tuesday, March 10, 2009


 The light was donated to the SDRL for testing by Everlast Induction Lighting of Jackson. The city of Ann          GLITR Monday, March 9, 2009
 Arbor was contacted by the SDLR and given an opportunity to provide a location to install this test light.
 The Buhr Park entrance was chosen because of the need for more lighting at the entrance and because
 this unique light would be very visible to the public.

 “The City of Ann Arbor has set aggressive goals to reduce global warming emissions and use renewable
 energy where possible," said Ann Arbor city energy coordinator David Konkle. "This lighting pilot test            Archive
 represents a UM - city partnership to test technologies to help reach those goals.”

 Besides being powered by solar and wind energy, the light itself is unique. It is an “induction” light that has   GLITR Podcasts
 no electrodes or electrical connections to the lamp. The power needed to generate light is transferred from
 the outside of the lamp envelope by means of electromagnetic fields. Therefore, the light has a very long         Great Lakes IT Report 3/20
 lifetime, and is expected to last over 22 years of nighttime operation.                                           The latest in tech news

 The hybrid wind-solar light features a 400-watt wind generator and two 50-watt solar panels used to
 charge two 12-volt batteries with 100 amp-hours of storage. The induction light uses 70 watts of electricity
 at 24 volts.

EverLast Facility Lighting Out Performs Competitors with Energy-
Efficient Fixtures
Full Spectrum Solutions, Inc., an innovator in energy-
efficient, full spectrum facility lighting, has completed
several independent studies comparing the performance
of EverLast commercial lighting solutions with other
popular brands in facility, warehouse, manufacturing
and other work environments. Based on typical
customer experiences and data supplied by facilities managers, EverLast
has consistently delivered significant energy savings, improved worker
productivity and safety records under normal operating conditions.

“With the cost of energy these days and the increased concern for worker
safety along with an emphasis on reducing operational overhead, EverLast
has become the preferred choice for new and replacement commercial
lighting,” said Mike Nevins, founder and CEO of Full Spectrum Solutions.
“Businesses that have been waiting for competitively priced facility lighting
that can dramatically reduce maintenance costs and increase energy-
efficiency will discover that EverLast is the solution that can do it all.”

Among the cost factors studied was the replacement of traditional
fluorescent tubes or HID fixtures with energy-efficient EverLast commercial
induction fixtures. By providing energy savings of up to 60 percent,
expenditures for EverLast products were recouped in less than 2 years and
resulted in ongoing, long term savings.

When compared to traditional commercial lighting, EverLast also
outperformed competitors with respect to lighting quality and worker
productivity. EverLast lamps provide an increase in contrast recognition
which has been credited with increased job safety rates and improved
worker efficiency.

                                      individual lighting fixture in a building. Quantum enables them to understand
                                      power usage, operating hours, to see if lamps are working in any particular
                                      fixture, to check that ballasts are working, and to make any desired changes
                                      to as many as 100 EcoSystem networks at the same time. For more

Ann Arbor tries out wind, solar powered street light 
The city of Ann Arbor is beginning to harness the wind and the sun to run its street lights. This particular 
light is on a pole at the entrance to Buhr Park on Packard Road. This light pole has a small wind 
generator at the top and two solar electric panels on the sides that provide electricity to charge 
batteries. These batteries operate a streetlight on the pole to illuminate the entrance drive to Buhr Park 
and Cobblestone Farm. This hybrid wind‐solar light represents a partnership between the City of Ann 
Arbor and the University of Michigan's Sustainable Design Research Laboratory within the Taubman 
College of Architecture and Urban Planning. The light was donated to the SDRL for testing by Everlast 
Induction Lighting of Jackson. (From Mi Energy Report)
