Lighting Synopsis


Partnering with IAP Worldwide Services on lighting solutions at the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA), Bay Lighting has supplied materials, consulted on projects, and offered industry training at the Annapolis campus.

According to US News, the US Naval Academy was established in 1845, is home to over 4,500 undergraduates, and sits on 338 acres. The sprawling campus has a need for a wide variety of lighting fixtures, from athletic fields to classrooms, dorm rooms to dining halls.

The Opportunity

The Naval Academy desired to convert to energy efficient LED lighting across campus, one order at a time.

Bay Lighting Solution

After receiving IAP’s material requisition, Bay Lighting reviewed the list of current flourescent lamps and replaced each item with comparable LED products focusing on the following criteria:

  • maximum energy savings
  • utility rebate certification
  • premium LED performance

The Benefits

Over the past several years, Bay Lighting and the Academy have converted over 3,000 fluorescent tubes to TLEDs. This just one example on the list of lamps that continue to be updated. One order at a time the USNA is saving energy and money!
As demonstrated by the USNA and their facilities management company, IAP Worldwide Services, converting to LED lighting can be done in smaller, manageable phases. Bay Lighting is available as an instrumental partner to ensure you are meeting your goals and selecting compatible LED lamps.

    Emergency lights typically have a battery back-up that will operate the light in the event the power goes out, regardless of if there’s a generator for back-up power. Exit signs can and should also have a battery, especially if the building doesn’t have generator. Often during fire department inspections, they check that your emergency lights are operational, both with and without power. Emergency lights must be kept properly maintained to meet all federal and state requirements, so when installing new ones or updating old ones, should you just change the battery or replace the entire fixture?

    There are many building codes, electrical codes, and emergency standards outlined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), International Building Code (IBC), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), state and local regulations, and others that provide lighting guidelines and requirements for commercial and similar properties. These include for interior lighting, exterior lighting, and emergency lighting.
