Abstract Results of a study evaluating potential energy/cost savings by transitioning to more efficient lighting technologies on U.S. Coast Guard Cutters. Three approaches were used: (1) a review of U.S. Navy ship lighting transition from fluorescent lights to light emitting diodes (LED), (2) lighting surveys on two Coast Guard Cutters, and (3) a Coast Guard LED cost model. The cost model was developed to compare fluorescent lighting with up to four alternative lighting technologies. Cost calculations included factors like upfront investment, component replacement, power consumption, technology- specific configuration, disposal, labor, annual light usage, and cost of electrical power.
