ENERGY RESOURCE-30 January 2007-Axis Technologies, Texas Fluorescents Team Up to Provide Schools with Energy-Efficient Lighting(C)2007 JeraOne -

Axis Technologies Group Inc. is collaborating with Texas Fluorescents to develop and market an energy-efficient and affordable fluorescent fixture for school facilities.

Based on the Axis ballast technology, the fixtures will have built-in dimming and daylight harvesting capabilities without the added expense of installing an external control system.

The installation of more efficient equipment and fixtures could reduce the energy expense of a school facility by an average of 20% annually, the two companies said.

"Most schools are receiving mandates to reduce energy usage, yet they have limited budgets-- the Axis Ballast/Texas Fluorescents combination should have broad appeal in situations like these," said Mark Thorpe, national sales manager to fixture manufacturers for Axis Technologies.
