Noribachi partners with Seahurst Electric on LED gym lighting upgrade for Texas school district

Dec. 26, 2014

Los Angeles, CA - Noribachi, a leading U.S.-based custom LED manufacturer for high output commercial and industrial lighting solutions partnered with Seahurst Electric to deliver LED lighting upgrade solutions for the Madisonville Consolidated Independent School District (CISD) in Madisonville, TX.

The project goals, outlined by CMTA Consulting Engineers (, a leader in sustainable building project consulting, were to achieve better lighting, enhance energy efficiency and reduce maintenance costs across the school district’s five gyms. The high school gym lighting also needed to be upgraded to meet IES recommendations and University Interscholastic League (UIL) requirements for lighting safety per the state of Texas.

“Four of the gyms were one-for-one replacements of 400W metal halide fixtures with Noribachi’s 158W Highbay.M fixtures. The fifth was a newer competition gym where we reduced the number of fixtures and increased light levels,” said Eric Reeves, Energy & Engineering Services Manager, Seahurst Electric. “We are really happy with the results. We have met IES and UIL light level requirements, which the existing system did not meet. End results will provide 66% annual energy savings, from 55,727 kWh per year usage to 18,837 kWh, in the competition gym alone.” “Based on our history with Noribachi, we knew that they were the right partner for this project,” said Matthew Connors, Connections for Conservation (, an experienced manufacturing rep. "Each partner was key to the delivery of the design, product and installation. This group focused on the specific requirements of the gyms and were able to create a solution that exceeded expectations and will provide multiple benefits for years to come." “This project represents the quality of the partners we work with,” said Esther M. Santos, COO, Noribachi. “This collaboration allowed us to specifically engineer the right LED gym lighting retrofit solution to meet Madisonville CISD’s project goals.” About Noribachi: U.S.-based Noribachi is a leading custom LED manufacturer for high output commercial and industrial lighting solutions.
