Date Announced: 23 Jul 2010 Davis, CA - Octus, Inc., a leading smart energy efficiency company, today announced it has been awarded a contract to develop an energy-efficient lighting retrofit project for the City of Davis, California, focused on the City's downtown parking facilities and its Central Park Pavilion. Octus will manage the project development process, including energy and technology analysis, contractor selection, and project management."The City of Davis has progressively and aggressively implemented energy-savings solutions over the past four decades," said Octus Vice President of Energy Solutions Mananya Chansanchai. "Based on our preliminary analysis, a combination of energy-efficient induction and LED lighting systems, including bi-level lighting fixtures, merit consideration. Through smart and energy-efficient illumination of their downtown parking facilities and Central Park Pavilion, the City will generate a triple bottom-line return: reduce energy costs, decrease its carbon footprint, and enhance the light quality and safety of its public spaces."

"Simple, cost-effective solutions like the lighting retrofits that Octus is helping us accomplish are the key to meeting the City's greenhouse gas reduction goals."
