Lamina works with RWE Rhein-Ruhr on energy efficiency initiative

Lamina Lighting Inc of Westampton, NJ, USA, a manufacturer of LED lighting systems, says that its LED lamps will be used in an energy efficiency initiative launched by Germany’s RWE Rhein-Ruhr, the regional energy company of the RWE Group. RWE is an integrated electricity and gas company, and is one of the largest electricity producers in Germany, supplying 20 million electricity customers throughout Europe.

RWE Rhein-Ruhr’s initiative aims to help commercial and residential customers conserve energy and reduce utility bills by replacing their current light sources with Lamina’s SōL MR16 LED product.

“We are very proud that our SōL MR16 LED has been chosen to play a relevant part in the RWE energy efficiency program in Germany,” said Frank M. Shinneman, president and CEO of Lamina. “Working together with RWE Rhein-Ruhr and our partner-distributor Richard Schahl GmbH in Germany, we are happy to help more people become familiar with Lamina’s unique product innovations and efficiencies, and how their use can have a positive effect on the environment in the long run.”

RWE Rhein-Ruhr will work with Richard Schahl GmbH, the European distributor of Lamina products, to train RWE-certified electricians on the correct installation of the Lamina LED lamps into businesses.

According to Lamina, its SōL MR16 LED product uses less than 8 watts of energy and produces the same amount of light as a 20 watt halogen light bulb. Lamina adds that its SōL product carries a CO² offset certification.
