One Stop Green Completes First Phase of ActiveLED Install for Rackspace

Houston, Texas, Nov 12, 2012 ( via COMTEX) -- After conducting an initial site survey and identifying the ideal area to demo ActiveLED lighting, One Stop Green, an international distributor for ActiveLED Lighting, has completed the installation of the first phase of an exterior lighting retrofit for the Rackspace parking lot. Rackspace is a leader in cloud computing services and seeks to ensure their headquarters in San Antonio, Texas is operating at maximum efficiency.

One Stop Green provided ActiveLED FL 100W flood light fixtures to replace existing 1000W metal halide flood lights, which will save the Rackspace facility enormous amounts of energy, maintenance and bulb consumption. Using the ActiveLED FL flood lights will virtually eliminate the need to service the fixtures for the next several decades, thereby locking in color, light output and energy consumption for the life of the fixture. ActiveLED fixtures are dimmable and controllable from a wall-mounted controller or via a networked computer allowing for active savings. All ActiveLED fixtures provide a uniform, bright white light greatly enhancing the visibility and uniformity of color within the Rackspace parking lot with zero color loss over the life of the lamp. These fixtures have also been equipped with ambient light sensors and motion sensors making them even more energy efficient and will save Rackspace over 90% on energy usage compared to their current parking lot lights.

The FL series flood lights were mounted on 60' poles with 6 flood lights mounted at the top. 4 motion sensors were mounted at 20' to illuminate the flood lights when the sensors detect motion. The FL series flood lights total 624W and replaced an existing fixture using 4875W of power, an over 4200W reduction.

Ringdale is a leader in networking, carbon emission and energy-reducing technologies since 1977. Built in Georgetown, TX, ActiveLED fixtures are manufactured from local components, most of which are made in-house. Incorporating its own patented solid-state lighting control and thermal management technology with the best LED element available, Ringdale developed the ActiveLED line to meet the requirements of enterprise, government and military customers who are focused on replacing their older, inefficient lighting sources or outfitting new construction projects with energy efficient, longer-lasting LED-based fixtures.

Rackspace is the service leader in cloud computing. They deliver enterprise-level hosting services to businesses of all sizes and kinds around the world. Launching in 1998, Rackspace has since grown to serve more than 190,000 customers. Rackspace integrates the industry's best technologies for each customer's specific need and delivers it as a service via the company's commitment to Fanatical Support. Their core products include Managed Hosting, Cloud Hosting, Email & Apps and there are currently over 4,500 Rackers around the world serving their customers.

One Stop Green, LLC facilitates environmentally friendly improvements to residential and commercial properties through distribution of green, energy efficient products and services. Their goal is to provide practical, long-term, and economical solutions for existing and non-existing facilities while remaining dedicated to the principles of sustainability. One Stop Green's mission is to help consumers take control of their energy options so they can reduce their carbon footprint and do their part for the environment, while protecting themselves against rising energy costs and taking advantage of valuable Federal tax credits and deductions.
