Energy Focus achieves DesignLights Consortium listing

Energy Focus Inc of Solon, OH, USA, which provides LED lighting products and turnkey lighting solutions, says that its LED Retrofit Kit has achieved listing by the DesignLights Consortium (DLC), a collaboration of utility companies and regional energy efficiency organizations committed to raising awareness of the benefits of efficient lighting in commercial buildings.

Energy Focus’ LED Retrofit Kit uses a single high-output LED array made by LED chip and lighting array maker Bridgelux of Livermore, CA, USA (which claims to be the only vertically integrated maker of LED solid-state light sources specifically for the lighting industry), in combination with Energy Focus’ patented heat dissipation system. It can be used to retrofit existing fixtures including Wallpack luminaires used to illuminate building facades, ‘Shoebox’ fixtures found in gas station canopies, as well as overhead parking garage fixtures.

DLC listing qualifies the LED Retrofit Kit for energy usage reduction rebates offered by member utilities. Energy Focus says that, with its kit, energy usage can be reduced drastically. For example, when used to replace HID bulbs in existing building ‘Wallpack’ fixtures, energy savings can exceed 180W.

“Being DLC listed qualifies our customers for rebates from member utilities as well as from  many non-member utilities who consider DLC listings a qualifier for their rebate programs,” says marketing manager Julia Dolsen. “Rebates can make all the difference for a customer. In some cases a rebate can be large enough to pay for the LED Retrofit Kit,” she adds.

“DLC listing recognizes the important economic value Energy Focus LED lighting products bring to our customers,” claims CEO Joe Kaveski. “Energy Focus LED products are not only ‘Military Tough’, as evidenced by our recent contract to begin re-lighting the military fleet, they also make sound economic sense.”
