Tri-State hangar doubles as lighting demo site

In addition to housing the corporate aircrafts, Tri-State’s hangar at Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport in Broomfield, Colo., is currently acting as a demonstration location for a number of high-bay lighting technologies.

The original purpose of the project was to showcase the lighting technologies for attendees of the association’s annual meeting, held earlier this month. However, because the hangar is the only location where spectators can view the technology side-by-side, Tri-State has extended the tour invitation to outside agencies to view the lighting.

About 15 people took part in the initial tour, held last week, including representatives from the Adams County Sheriff’s office and those in the lighting industry. The second and last tour was held on April 23rd. This week, Tri-State’s facilities department will be removing the lights, which will eventually be replaced by whichever technology is selected for permanent placement in the hangar.

The association has also recently installed upgraded lighting technology, including LEDs (light emitting diode) and induction lighting, at its headquarters location — inside the building and to light the parking lot. Additionally, Tri-State has partnered with a number of its member systems to fund energy efficient light installation programs for consumers, such as a project in downtown Ouray, Colo. With the help of Tri-State and San Miguel Power Association (Nucla, Colo.), the western Colorado town made the switch from mercury-vapor street lamps to LED technology last summer.
