Induction Lighting Pros as Hangar Lighting article Hangar Network eNewsletter March 2014
The most common complaint we hear from those who work in aircraft hangars is that there isn’t enough light to do mechanical repairs, closely followed by grievances about always having to change out bulbs and ballasts on 35′ ceilings.
Replacing traditional Metal Halide High Bay fixtures with Induction High Bays may be the answer to these complaints. Here’s why:
(1) Lumen depreciation (Light Loss Factor): The most common cause of lumen depreciation is heat, so the hotter the bulb burns, the faster it loses its light. Metal Halide bulbs burn at extremely hot temperatures and need replacement after every 2-5 years. Induction lighting, on the other hand, has a much cooler burn temperature -The Neptun Light Induction bulbs are rated for 100,000 hours of operation, so that means that only after 70,000 to 80,000 hours of lighting will the bulbs depreciate. Moreover, that means you will have 15- 20 years of light (if we’re talking 12 hour work days).
(2) Color Rendering Index (CRI): CRI is the ability of the light source to illuminate colors and details effectively. Metal Halide lights have a CRI of 65, while Induction Light sources typically have a CRI of 86. This difference allows for a significantly better visual effect.
(3) Photopic and Scotopic Lumens: Photopic Lumens refer to the total amount of light coming from a light source, including ultraviolet light, which the human eye cannot see, while Scotopic lumens refer to the visual lumens that the eye can see. Induction light emits very little ultraviolet light so most of the lumens are actually visual lumens (not the case for Metal Halide lamps).
The final advantage to Induction lighting is the fixture warranty. Neptun Light, Inc. offers a 10-year warranty on all of their Induction Fixtures and a 5-year warranty on Induction Bulb/ballast retrofits for existing fixtures.
The Energy Efficient Commercial Buildings Tax Deduction
The Energy Efficient Commercial Buildings Tax Deduction (CBTD) is a special financial incentive created by the Energy Policy Act of 2005 and designed to reduce the initial cost of investing in energy-efficient lighting and other building systems via an accelerated tax deduction.
This special tax deduction allows building owners (or tenants) to write off the complete cost of upgrading a building’s indoor lighting, HVAC/hot water and building envelope in the year the new equipment is placed in service, capped at $1.80/sq.ft. Alternately, the owner (or tenant) could upgrade one of these three systems to earn the CBTD capped at $0.60/sq.ft. In short, with the CBTD, the cost of new lighting or other building systems can be claimed in a single tax year instead of amortized over a period of years.
The CBTD expiration date has been extended twice, most recently by the Energy Independence Act of 2007 (EISA). With this extension, the CBTD can be claimed for qualifying projects completed before January 1, 2014.
Tax Deduction Versus Tax Credit
A tax deduction is a cost subtracted from adjusted gross income when calculating taxable income; tax liability is not reduced dollar for dollar, as is the case with a tax credit, but instead in proportion to the taxpayer’s tax bracket.
COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS TAX DEDUCTION (ALL SYSTEMS)
For projects completed before January 1, 2014, a CBTD can be claimed that covers up to the entire deductible cost of investing in the installation of energy-efficient commercial building property, capped at $1.80/sq.ft.:
Indoor lighting systems AND HVAC/hot water systems AND Building envelope features
To qualify, EPAct 2005 and IRS Notice 2006-52 state:
the project must be certified to reduce total annual energy and power costs to at least 50% less than a Reference Building satisfying the requirements of ASHRAE/IESNA 90.1-2001 solely through changes to the building’s interior lighting, HVAC/hot water and building envelope;
the cost must otherwise be depreciable for tax purposes;
the project must be part of a new construction or renovation project within the scope of ASHRAE/IESNA 90.1-2001 (including addenda 90.1a-2003—transformers, 90.1b-2002—building envelope, 90.1c-2002—ducts, 90.1-d-2002—slab-on-grade floor insulation, and 90.1k-2002—piping insulation, as in effect as of April 2, 2003); and
the project must be located in the United States or its territories.

“Reduce facility energy use and resulting green house gas 3% each year from FY 2006 through FY 2015 with a base starting point of FY 2003 or 30% reduction by 2015.”
The Department of Defense (DOD) accounts for approximately 63% of the energy consumed by federal facilities and buildings.This makes DOD the single largest energy consumer in the United States, even though consuming only 1% of national site-delivered energy. Its annual spending on facility energy has averaged over $3.4 billion recently.
With so many structures, DOD’s investment in energy efficiency and renewable technologies can help create a market and steadily lower the cost for advanced energy technology. Both the Department of Defense as a whole and each of the military branches have taken strong leadership in setting ambitious goals for energy independence and in deploying innovative energy technology to meet those targets. Major steps have been taken across the department to develop and implement new energy solutions using renewable fuels, renewable electricity, energy efficiency, energy storage, and smart and secure microgrids for electricity.
New Buildings, Renovations and Retrofits
EO13423 (Section 2f) mandates specific energy reduction targets for new construction and renovations. Executive branch agencies are directed to meet objectives set in the Federal Leadership in High Performance and Sustainable Buildings Memorandum of Understanding (“Sustainable Buildings MOU”).
The Sustainable Buildings MOU calls for new buildings to be 30% more cost efficient than industry standards, and for buildings undergoing major renovations to be 20% more cost efficient than a pre-renovation, 2003 baseline. Federal agencies are encouraged to incorporate sustainable practices into projects underway, and are also encouraged to sell or dispose of unneeded assets.
Aircraft Hangar Lighting
New initiatives to increase energy efficiency in the U.S. Military include replacing HID lighting with energy efficient Induction and LED in U.S. military aircraft hangars, airplane parking decks and ramps which greatly contributes to the military’s goal of achieving the 3% yearly reduction has mandated by the Executive Order.

With 140 Metal Hhalide fixtures burning 12 hours a day, seven days a week n the manufacturing area this company’s energy consumption was excessive. To improve energy efficiency and reduce total operating costs, the company recently replaced all 140 of the 400W Metal Halide fixtures with high-efficiency Induction Lighting High Bay fixtures.
The new hangar lights have not only slashed future energy consumption per fixture from approximately 400W to just 200W per unit, but they have also improved light performance and output, reduced maintenance cost and qualified the company for a substantial rebate for its energy efficient practices.
“The installation went very smoothly with minimal interruption to our manufacturing process,” said Vicki T.- Vice President of Manufacturing
Cutting Energy Costs, Consumption with Induction Lighting
Number of Fixtures – 140
Replaced – 400W Metal Halide
Illuminance level – 39.9fc
Mounting Height – 18’
Air Conditioning Reduction – 10%-15%
Payback – < 1 year payback with rebate incentives
In addition to the significant energy savings the new Induction Lighting fixtures have also helped to reduce lighting maintenance. When you factor in the cost of renting a lift to reach the 18′ mounting height, maintaining the old fixtures was a large expense every year. With unique highly efficient 16,000 lumens the Induction High Bay fixtures combine precision optics and next generation thermal management practices.
The long-life performance of the new Induction Lighting fixtures means that the company can now expect to get as much as 20 years of life out of each fixture – with the first ten covered by the no-cost replacement warranty.
The company and its employees are both pleased with the significant temperature drop inside the manufacturing facility as a result of the new Induction Lighting fixtures. Without the excess heat generated from the Metal Halide fixtures, the company engineers have noted a 20-ton (10% – 15%) reduction in air conditioning demand to maintain comfortable temperatures inside the facility – an additional energy saving and sustainability benefit for the company.
Employees have noticed that it is cooler, and they like the light produced by the Induction Lights better than the old lights. It’s not only more uniform, but the crisp white light is easier on the eyes. In an area prone to severe weather and the associated power outages, the instant-on feature is also a significant benefit to both worker comfort and safety. And, the fixtures tend to generate less static, eliminating the light distortion that can occur with even minimal dust accumulation on traditional Metal Halide units.
Utility Company Rebates Add to Induction Lighting Benefits
As a result of its energy-saving initiatives, the company is qualified and has already applied for a substantial $48,000 energy-savings rebate through the local utility company. “The energy and cost savings combined with the opportunity to receive the energy efficiency rebates has made the conversion to Induction lighting a substantial part of our sustainability efforts.”
