High Tech Lights LLC Earns Commercial ENERGY STARĀ® Partnership for EFL Products

Entire EFL Line Delivers Superior Lifetime and Efficiency

Honolulu, HI, February 19, 2010 --(PR.com)-- High Tech Lights LLC. has been awarded ENERGY STAR® partnership for its Environmentally Friendly Lighting (EFL) line LED light bulbs. The product line, including the T8, T5 and AR111 downlights, has demonstrated LED lifetime and fixture efficacy that qualifies for the stringent commercial rating, as well as the residential rating.

ENERGY STAR® is a joint program of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that helps consumers and organizations save money and protect the environment by promoting energy-efficient products. Products earning the commercial ENERGY STAR qualification must meet extended lifetime criteria, which is 40 percent longer than residential standards.

"Being rated for commercial applications is especially crucial since more than ninety percent of the LED lighting we utilize today is in commercial CREE LED chip installations," said Tony Jones, president, High Tech Lights LLC. "Cree also provides the highest color rendering of any ENERGY STAR-qualified LED downlight. In stark contrast to compact fluorescent devices that contain toxic mercury, Cree's non-toxic LED.... deliver better efficiency and render colors such that the user doesn't have to compromise their lighting experience." said Neal Hunter, president, Cree LED Lighting in a recent CREE press release.

The EFL T8 is available and qualified in four color temperatures (2700K-3500K, 4000-4500, 5000-5500 and 5500-6500), and boasts efficiency of more than 54 lumens per watt with lumen output of 2550 lumens—higher than any other qualified T8 LED product.

The EFL series excels in delivering beautiful, efficient LED light in a manner that surpasses even the most stringent test.
