Product Release: MaxLite ENERGY STAR Rated LED Lamps


3/30/2012



WEST CALDWELL, N.J -- MaxLite®, a leading global manufacturer and marketer of innovative LED luminaires and lamps, launches nine ENERGY STAR® rated LEDs in the popular MaxLED™ line of innovative lamps and luminaires using state-of-the-art LED technology. The new long-lasting, high-quality LED lamps have received the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ENERGY STAR® label.

Three years ago, MaxLite received the prestigious Partner of the Year award from The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), recognizing MaxLite’s continuing contribution and commitment to manufacturing products that earn the ENERGY STAR.

“These ENERGY STAR qualified LED lamps use up to 75 percent less energy and last 10 to 17 times longer than incandescent bulbs,” explains Pat Treadway, MaxLite's National Product Marketing Manager. “Meeting ENERGY STAR’s high standard is certainly a hallmark of energy efficiency, performance and quality that we can pass on to our customers.”

MaxLite’s new ENERGY STAR LEDs provide better quality light than CFL lamps and offer superior cost savings to their incandescent alternatives; replacing a 75-watt incandescent PAR30 with a MaxLED 11-watt PAR30 will yield $176 in utility savings over the lifetime of the lamp. MaxLED ENERGY STAR-qualified lamps deliver a minimum of 25,000 hours of maintenance-free operation (8 to 12 years based on eight hours of daily usage) which translates to 10 to 17 times longer life than incandescent lamps. MaxLED ENERGY STAR-qualified lamps are manufactured with high-ranked LED binning, which ensures color uniformity. MaxLED lamps operate with reduced heat, and without emitting radiation, which can also reduce HVAC costs.

MaxLite’s new ENERGY STAR-rated LED lamp styles include:

•    An 8-watt G25 LED Globe with an E26 medium base is available with a 3000K correlated color temperature (CCT), while delivering 415 lumens, and a CRI of 80. Equivalent to a 40-watt incandescent, the frosted LED Globe delivers a 50 lumen-per-watt output, which is fully dimmable down to 10 percent. With a minimum L70 of 25,000 hours, this lamp is ideal for vanity lighting applications in residential, hospitality and commercial environments and is both UL- and cUL-listed for damp locations and operates on a 120-volt lighting system.

About ENERGY STAR
ENERGY STAR is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy that helps businesses and citizens save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices. With the help of ENERGY STAR, Americans saved enough energy in 2010 alone to avoid greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from 33 million cars, all while saving nearly $18 billion on their utility bills. Energy efficient choices can save families about a third on their energy bill with similar savings of greenhouse gas emissions, without sacrificing features, style or comfort. The EPA’s ENERGY STAR partnerships offer a proven energy management strategy that helps to measure current energy performance, set goals, track savings, and reward improvements. Its innovative energy performance rating system is employed in more than 200,000 buildings across the United States.
