Chosen as a result of their rigorous LM-79 performance testing and excellent color rendering index and efficacy, Lighting Science Group’s ultra-efficient LED bulbs and fixtures have no mercury and very long life-spans. The incentives are being provided for retrofit, new construction and custom applications through Efficiency Vermont.”With rising energy costs nationwide, communities are looking for ways to save energy–the installation of Lighting Science Group’s LED bulbs and fixtures can save businesses in Vermont thousands of dollars in maintenance, replacement and energy cost,” said Zach Gibler, Chief Executive Officer of Lighting Science Group. “These businesses now have the freedom to switch to an environmentally friendly and energy efficient lighting solution without sacrificing light quality and at little to no cost,” said Gibler.The ultra-efficient DEFINITY LED line includes A19, PAR38, PAR30, PAR20, MR16, and G25 bulb types that are all dimmable and will last nearly 20 years. Unlike CFLs, the DEFINITY LED bulbs contain no mercury, are completely recyclable, are instant on, and offer outstanding light quality. Furthermore, independent laboratory testing results show that the DEFINITY LED bulbs outperform competing products on the market.The PROLIFIC series LED street lights bring into balance the need to responsibly illuminate the community’s roadways while reducing energy consumption and eliminating maintenance costs. Compared with traditional HID street lights, the PROLIFIC series street lights are at least 50% more efficient, provide a more uniform light distribution and increased light levels, and will save the customers thousands of dollars in energy and maintenance cost over the life of the fixtures. Furthermore, the maintenance-friendly PROLIFIC LED technology eliminates costly re-lamping and re-ballasting of HID street lights and direct line wiring is used in place of starters and ballasts to eliminate traditional maintenance issues.Lighting Science Group’s ultra-efficient area Shoebox light fixture is a versatile and distinct LED-based light fixture that provides businesses unlimited options to illuminate and enhance architecture for exterior area lighting applications. Clean, sophisticated lines blend seamlessly with architectural elements creating glare free, low maintenance light for general illumination needs.
