IEE Names Lighting Science(R) to Top Ten LED Lamp List
Definity(TM) Ranks Amongst the Best PAR 30 Reflector Lamps on the
SATELLITE BEACH, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 01/15/13 -- Lighting Science
Group Corporation(R) (OTCQB: LSCG), one of the world's leading LED
lighting technology companies, announced today that its DEFINITY(TM)
PAR30 LED lamp has been recognized by the IEE, an Institute of the
Edison Foundation, as one of the TOP TEN best LED lamps. Using an
innovative approach that factors in energy efficiency, light quality,
cost, and consumer appeal, three energy efficiency leaders -- IEE,
TopTen USA, and Ecova -- teamed up to provide consumers with a list
of the Top Ten PAR 30 LED reflector light bulbs on the market today.
The study focused on LED PAR30 and PAR38 (parabolic aluminized
reflector) lamps because of their significant potential for energy
savings with consumers. With approximately 150 million incandescent
or halogen lamps in use in U.S. households, the potential energy
savings in switching to long-lasting LED reflector lamps is vast.
DEFINITY(TM) products from Lighting Science(R) are leading-edge LED
replacement lamps that deliver performance and affordability to
consumers. The advanced lamp line is a result of an LED system design
that encompasses efficient energy saving power supplies, unique
thermal solutions to foster exceptionally long lamp life and a
top-tier optical system that results in spectacular light quality.
"Our goal was to make it easy for consumers to find the best LED
reflector lamps," said IEE Executive Director Lisa Wood, "and by
best, we mean the most efficient, cost-effective, as well as
LED reflector lamps are typically 360 percent more energy efficient
than halogen reflector lamps. LED reflector lamps also offer a longer
operating life -- typically in excess of 30,000 hours versus 2,000
hours for a halogen lamp. And the light that LEDs cast can be just as
warm, focused, and dimmable. But with hundreds of LED products to
choose from, finding the best products is a challenge. Now, consumers
have a guide to the top performing LED lamps.
"We believe that our LED lamps are a significant advancement in the
science of light and key to a more efficient, sustainable and
brighter future," said Keith Scott, CEO of Lighting Science.
"Consumers want solutions that make their homes feel comfortable and
look even better. Our lamps enable our customers to achieve the best
lighting results available today."
