The Navy is looking to pocket a few million bucks this year with upgraded lighting that saves electricity at shore bases worldwide. Navy Installations Command is working to replace fluorescent light bulbs in offices, gyms, street lights and parking garages at its 70 facilities with LEDs, which are brighter, safer and cost less, according to a July 31 CNIC release. "Navy ships have been using mercury-free LED light bulbs, making replacement of bulbs easier to handle and dispose of," said Lt. Cmdr. Gareth Montgomery, action officer for Navy Installations Command energy branch, in the release. "There are significant safety and efficiency advantages, since fluorescent bulbs are regularly replaced."
