The United States House of Representatives recently upgraded the lighting in the Main House Chamber using high-performance, energy-efficient LED lighting from Nila Inc. Nila is proud to have been awarded the highly competitive contract to replace the 35-year old TV lights in the Main House Chamber with Nila Boxer LED lights.
The replacement lights were required to maintain the light output levels of the old system at a distance of over 75 feet from the light fixture to speakers on the House floor. According to Nila CEO, Jim Sanfilippo, “The Nila lights give off more light than the old system with a 75% energy reduction over the old lights, exceeding the House's requirement. What’s more, the Nila system allows the lights to be controlled directly from the House Recording Studio for improved performance.” The Nila Boxer is the only LED light on the market capable of meeting all the requirements of the Main House Chamber.
In an era when people of a variety of political viewpoints are pushing for reduced government spending, a new technology such as from Nila provides an ideal solution. “With the Nila Lighting System, energy consumption in the Main House Chamber went from 24,000 watts to 6000 watts. What is even more impressive is that the energy savings from cooling is greater than the savings from the lighting, since replacing hot tungsten lights with Nila LED lights meant an 80% reduction in air conditioning load associated with those lights,” said Sanfilippo. “In addition, the old lights would burn out in less than 1,200 hours, whereas Nila LED lights won’t need any maintenance for at least seven years.”
