Energy efficiency continues to be a top priority for education facilities. Yet expensive sustainable options have been historically difficult for k-12 public schools. Especially to finance and achieve.
So thanks to innovations in energy efficient LED lighting technology and high-performance innovations. All that meet standards for rebates and incentives, Sandy Grove Middle School in Lumber Bridge, N.C. installed Cree LED lighting to become the nation’s first net-positive-energy, LEED-platinum-designed, leased public school in the country.
Notable features in the new bulbs include superior lifetimes, with most projected to last 22+ years and some up to 32 years. Color rendition is improved, with smoother, quieter dimming to levels as low as 1 percent. Cree’s market-leading “Candlelight Dimming,” available in the new candelabra bulb, mimic’s a true candle flame with a warmer 1800K color when dimmed.
Cree bulbs meet or surpass the requirements for ENERGY STAR® product certification and are covered by a 10 year 100 percent satisfaction guarantee – one of the strongest warranties in the industry. The new bulb portfolio includes new A-lamps, BR lamps, PAR lamps and Candelabra lamps, as well as a new series of recessed downlight retrofit products.
Also, Cree LED bulbs are available this month, online and in-store, at The Home Depot®. Please visit http://creebulb.com to learn more.
