Lunera Lighting Gives the Gift of Light to San Miguel School

Provides Plug-and-Play LED Lighting and Cuts Utility Bills for Low Income School

Santa Clara, Calif., – February 3, 2015 – Lunera® Lighting, Inc., a leader in lighting innovations accelerating the transformation to advanced LED technology, delivered its popular plug-and-play 13-watt Helen Lamps to the San Miguel School to replace many of the school’s 26-watt Compact Fluorescent Lamp (CFL) lamps. The elementary Catholic school helps break the cycle of poverty for low-income Latino children in the Washington D.C. area.

“Our student alumni and interns easily completed the installation
of the plug-and-play Helen Lamps during summer break. We replaced existing CFLs with Helen Lamps in our multipurpose room, cafeteria, library and restrooms. The teachers and students immediately noticed the difference in the warmth and quality of
the light. In the library, it felt as though there was more daylight
in the room making it easier for students to read and study,” said Don Mullikin, President of San Miguel School.

“The school’s environmental club is run by staff, alumni and students – they are excited to be able to measure the energy savings and lighting improvement as a project,” Mullikin added.

The Helen Lamps were used in the school’s multipurpose room, cafeteria, library and restrooms. Now students can study and do homework under great light in the library, instead of at home in a poorly lit, crowded apartment. The school displays calendars, information and student art projects in the hallways, which came to life under the new lighting.

“As a company focused on continuing innovation, we are pleased to help the San Miguel School to provide an improved learning environment for students and help create the innovators of tomorrow,” said Tom Quinn, Lunera Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

The Energy Star® rated Helen Lamp delivers 900 lumens of usable light and offers four color temperatures to choose from. Designed for long lighting run times, the instant-on lamps immediately improved the interior lighting environment, reduced energy usage, and ultimately provided a sustainable improvement for the school.
