Santa Clara, Calif. — Aug. 20, 2015 — Lunera Lighting, Inc., a leader in lighting innovations accelerating the transformation to advanced LED technology, announced the sale of its 1 millionth Helen Lamp, a plug-and-play LED replacement for a compact fluorescent lamp (CFL).
Lunera created the plug-and-play LED lamp category with the invention of its proprietary BallastLED technology. This technology enables Lunera's LED lamps to operate directly off the existing ballast. The simplicity of this approach delivers the lowest-cost solution to convert existing lighting infrastructure to energy-saving LED technology.
"The majority of energy consumed from existing lighting in the U.S.A. comes from conventional bulbs that operate off of electronic or magnetic ballasts," said Doug Schendt, CEO of Lunera Lighting. "Since LEDs are inherently incompatible with ballasts, the pace of LED technology adoption into the commercial market segment was stifled. Lunera's talented team of engineers developed BallastLED technology in order to solve this difficult technical challenge and accelerate the deployment of energy-saving LED technology across the nation's commercial building portfolio."
Lunera Lighting designs, manufactures and markets high-performance commercial LED plug-and-play lamps that make obsolete traditional lighting technologies. For more information,visit Lunera.com.
