Cooper Lighting, Long Island Power Authority and Local Distributors Promote LED Lighting

Nov 2, 2011 Cooper Lighting, an industry leader committed to delivering innovative products and driving transformational technology in the lighting industry, announced that it has partnered with the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) and nine local electrical distributors to help promote the use of ENERGY STAR®-qualified LED lighting in homes. According to press release Cooper Lighting, a leader in energy-efficient solutions offering the broadest selection of recessed downlights including the first ENERGY STAR®-qualified HALO LED downlight and IRIS high-performance architectural products, has partnered with LIPA to offer its universal All-Pro LED Retrofit Recessed Downlight to promote both energy efficiency and cost savings. Through its Residential Energy Efficient Lighting Program, one of the many programs under LIPA's Efficiency Long Island, customers can purchase Cooper Lighting's All-Pro LED Retrofit Recessed Downlight at a deeply discounted price. With an LED module and recessed trim, this energy-efficient product is designed to retrofit inefficient incandescent lighting with LED technology. On display at nine Long Island electrical distributors, the All-Pro LED downlight is available for purchase at a special promotional price through November 30, 2011. "Lighting can account for up to 15 percent of the average electric bill, mostly due to the use of inefficient fixtures and light bulbs," said LIPA's Chief Operating Officer Michael Hervey. "ENERGY STAR-qualified LED lighting can use up to 75 percent less energy and lasts at least 25 times longer than incandescent bulbs. We continue to assist and encourage customers to replace inefficient lighting with new LED technology at a reduced cost, which in turn will result in lower electric use and lower bills for our customers." Cooper Lighting's All-Pro LED Retrofit Recessed Downlight fixture is designed to fit into both 5-inch and 6-inch standard and shallow recessed housings by Halo, All-Pro or compatible recessed housings. Meeting today's stringent ENERGY STAR requirements, the product consumes less than 15 watts and delivers over 600 lumens (comparable in light output and light distribution to a 65-watt BR30 incandescent lamp) and is designed to last 50,000 hours, or more than 20 years, when used six hours per day. To save additional energy, the product can also be dimmed. Based on those figures, replacing one incandescent light bulb can easily save hundreds of dollars over the life of the fixture. The Cooper All-Pro LED downlight also provides a preferred warm white color of 3000K correlated color temperature (CCT). Installation is accomplished in almost no time by simply screwing the adapter into the existing recessed downlight socket. View the All-Pro instructional video for additional information. "As homeowners become more receptive to new lighting technologies, they not only want energy-efficient solutions, but high quality, reliable ones," said Cooper Lighting President Mark Eubanks. "Cooper Lighting's All-Pro LED Retrofit Recessed Downlight meets these needs by using tested LED technology to achieve the savings and quality of light that homeowners desire." Not all LED lighting fixtures perform to ENERGY STAR standards. To qualify for ENERGY STAR, LED lighting products must pass a variety of tests to prove that the products will display the following characteristics: Brightness is equal to or greater than existing lighting technologies (incandescent or fluorescent) and light is well distributed over the area lighted by the fixture. Light output remains constant over time, only decreasing toward the end of the rated lifetime (at least 25,000 hours or 22 years based on use of 3 hours per day). Excellent color quality. The shade of white light appears clear and consistent over time. Efficiency is as good as or better than fluorescent lighting. Light comes on instantly when turned on. No flicker when dimmed. Manufacturers must provide a three-year minimum warranty on their ENERGY STAR-qualified LED fixtures, so their products are guaranteed.
