The county annex has new and improved light bulbs, thanks to the quick-thinking of Los Alamos County facilities staffer Leon Ortega. Ortega had worked on the installation of new, energy-saving T12 fixtures in the Municipal Building shortly before it was deemed unsafe by engineers. He suggested the current money-saving project to his boss, Jim Zerr, because the old fluorescent-light fixtures in the Annex Building required constant maintenance to keep them shining. Ortega worked closely with Anthony Strain, also from the county’s facilities division, to get the job done in less than one week.The team removed 100 fixtures and 400 energy-efficient bulbs from the Municipal Building and moved them to the County Annex, to replace aging ballasts and bulbs, and shed more light on both workers and customers in the Department of Public Utilities and the Community Development Department.The transplanted bulbs use electronic ballasts, which start and operate more quietly, without flickering and with increased efficiency in light output. They use less energy than traditional ballasts.
