US Navy Told to ‘Buy American’ When It Comes to LED

President Donald Trump is laying down the law when it comes to ensuring that the federal government, which is one of the largest employers in the world, buys American. This means it is boom time for US manufacturers when it comes to securing major lighting contracts. The Navy is currently in the process of retrofitting its bases with LED light sources, in an attempt to reduce energy costs. This was a long term goal set at a time when military spending was being squeezed under the Obama administration.

It was recently announced that US lighting manufacturer, Orion, has signed a multi-million-dollar deal to retrofit two naval bases.
