Katrin Mehler, President of LUXADD: "After our huge success at the 2012 Globalcon Conference in Atlantic City, we are looking foreward to present our new energy efficient retrofit solution to the West Coast."
Miami, FL (PRWEB) April 26, 2012
LUXADD – maker of the only Made-In-The-USA T5 Retrofit Kit for older, T12 fluorescent lights that are being phased out in the U.S.– will be introducing their energy-saving lighting technology to a large group of energy professionals attending the EMC show.
The West Coast Energy Management Congress(EMC) is the largest energy conference and technology expo held on the U.S. West Coast specifically for business, industrial and institutional energy users. It brings together the top experts in all areas of the field related to energy efficiency, facility optimization and sustainability. This is the perfect event for presenting LUXADD lighting and energy-conservation technology to members of the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE). The West Coast Energy Management Congress is presented by the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE). The Association's more than 16,000 members include energy engineering and management professionals from throughout the U.S., as well as over 80 nations abroad.
Show Hosting by Puget Sound Energy
Washington State’s oldest local energy utility, Puget Sound Energy (PSE) serves more than one million electric customers and 750,000 natural gas customers in eleven counties. PSE employees are dedicated to providing great customer service and delivering energy that is safe, reliable, reasonably priced, and environmentally responsible.
National Phase-Out of T12 Fluorescent Lighting Tubes Begins July 14
Effective July 14, 2012, production of most T12 florescent lamps will be phased out, as mandated by the 2009 Department of Energy General Service Lamp legislation. Many of the standard fluorescent lights- an estimated 500 million T12 tubes – in millions of buildings will need to be replaced starting in July 2012. The Department of Energy (DOE) regulations will eliminate the most common T12 tubes. It is estimated that the replacement of 500 million T12 tubes will produce an annual saving of $10 Billion in electricity costs nationwide.
LUXADD Express T5 Retrofit Kit is listed by UL
LUXADD is the only U.S. manufacturer of the new Express T5 Retrofit Kit Series to meet new Federal law mandating replacement of standard T12 and elective T8 - resulting in instant savings up to 73% in lighting energy costs. The LUXADD Express T5 Retrofit Kit is listed to applicable UL Standards and requirements by UL (Underwriters Laboratories, http://www.ul.com).
Lighting is an energy hog
Lighting is the single largest user of electricity in the U.S. New, patented technology from LUXADD allows for easy retrofitting of older, less efficient fluorescent lighting systems to T5, the leader in energy efficiency and lighting quality. The T5 saves up to 73% on lighting energy and reduces a company’s carbon footprint up to 60% with just one simple “SNAP” – like changing a light bulb. It is “plug and play” technology anyone can do does not require maintenance personnel.
Where Lighting Is Most Costly
Rising energy costs directly impact all buildings in the U.S. Retail and service buildings in the U.S. use 149 billion kWh (or 508 trillion Btu) of site electricity (electricity consumed within the building) each year. This electricity is used for a variety of different purposes, the most being used for lighting (59%).
LUXADD is a leading lighting solution provider based in Miami, FL and is comprised of experts dedicated to developing new technologies that improve energy efficiency in lighting, the single largest consumer of electricity worldwide. The U.S. Department of Energy's fluorescent lighting made official that most of the T12 lamps will be phased out of production starting in July 2012. Current lighting systems consisting of T12 fixtures with magnetic ballast will be retrofitted to modern T5 lamp technology with electronic ballast over time.
Environmental concerns, escalating energy costs and highly competitive economic conditions have created strong demand for energy efficient products that will help to conserve energy, save money and promote a healthy environment. LUXADD meets this need with products that dramatically reduce electricity consumption instantly while producing higher quality light. LUXADD™ is a registered trademark and the conversion adapter – the LUXADD Express T5 Retrofit Kit series is a patented technology. The company’s products are in compliance with the LEED and NAHB green building standards and listed by UL.
