Firefly LED Lighting is pleased to announce the recent installation of its PAR 20 LED lamps in Austin Energy’s headquarters. In just over two years since company inception, Firefly LED Lighting has brought its lighting products to market, delivering on the promise of using 90% less electricity than standard lighting products. This green company is revitalizing the local economy by creating jobs for Texans, with its headquarters in Austin and its products manufactured in Texas.
Just a few days ago, Thursday, July 21, 2011, Michael Villarreal of Austin Energy’s Facilities Management team installed 24 of Firefly’s PAR 20 lamps in the lobbies and elevator on the first floor of Austin Energy’s headquarters located at 721 Barton Springs Road, Austin, TX. The installation of these lamps will show how LED lighting systems use up to 90% less electricity than standard lighting products.
Energy industry regulators in the United States and worldwide are phasing out incandescent and fluorescent lighting in favor of LED (light-emitting diode) technology to save energy costs and lessen environmental impact. Firefly LED Lighting products are more energy efficient and longer lasting than conventional lighting, lowering consumer costs by over 80 percent for energy and 96 percent for maintenance and increasing ROI with a quick payback.
Firefly LED Lighting products provide a 32 percent reduction in temperature, 48 percent increase in thermal conductivity, an up to 223 percent increase in surface area, and up to 40K hours of light output, along with added light and motion sensors and controls.
The most cost effective and energy efficient lighting on the market, the benefits of Firefly LEDs are:
- High Efficiency
- Long Lamp Life
- Low Power Consumption
- Low Maintenance and Lamp Replacement
- Reduced Carbon Footprint
- Low Heat Generation
- Environmentally Safe
Firefly continues to work to get its LED lighting into more locations, get its products commercial ready and widely available, especially in a city so environmentally conscious and supportive of a local innovator. The company is always available to talk with media and to arrange tests or demos of its products.
