LSG's New Line of LED Retrofit Lamps can Expand LED Lighting Technology Market

Next Generation LED Lamp Line to Substantially Increase Light Output at Half the Price of Current LED Lamp Line

Lighting Science Group Corporation (LSG) (Pink Sheets: LSCG), a global leader in LED lighting products, will preview its next generation line of LED retrofit lamps that will be available in the fourth quarter of this year. The new line of lamps will have substantially increased light output compared to LSG's current line but will be available at about half the cost. LSG's new line of LED retrofit lamps has the potential to dramatically expand the market for LED lighting technology.

"Until today, the use of LED based lamps was limited to applications where operational costs and energy rates were high enough to justify the expense of changing to LED lamps," said Zach Gibler, Chief Executive Officer of LSG. "Now, Lighting Science is preparing to make energy efficient LED lighting available for a wider range of applications by delivering unrivaled performance for the price. Our new line of LED retrofit lamps will use approximately 80% less energy than the traditional lighting technology lamps they replace. In most applications, Lighting Science's new line of LED retrofit lamps should pay for themselves in well under one year based on energy savings alone. This rapid payback coupled with the exceptionally long life of LEDs will provide significant financial returns for customers and should result in strong market growth for these products."

The new LSG LED retrofit lamp line includes the following lamp types:

  • MR16, GU5.3 and GU10 A small reflector lamp for use in residential and commercial track and downlight fixtures. Ideal in high end retail, museum, hospitality, restaurant, and home applications. Dimmable, available in spot and flood beam spreads. Consumes 5 to 7 watts and lasts about 30,000 hours. Replaces 20-35W halogen MR16 lamps.
  • A19 The standard and well known light bulb shape for use in standard lighting fixtures, mostly commonly table lamps. Ideal in home, office and hospitality applications. Dimmable, standard beam spread. Consumes 6 to 8 watts and lasts about 50,000 hours. Replaces 40W incandescent lamps.
  • PAR20 A reflector lamp for use in residential track and downlight fixtures. Ideal in retail, hospitality, restaurant, office and home applications. Dimmable, available in spot and flood beam spreads. Consumes 5 to 7 watts and lasts about 50,000 hours. Replaces 35-50W halogen and incandescent lamps.
  • PAR30 A reflector lamp for use in residential track and downlight fixtures. Ideal in retail, hospitality, restaurant, office and home applications. Dimmable, available in spot and flood beam spreads. Consumes approximately 13 watts and lasts about 50,000 hours. Replaces 60W halogen and incandescent lamps.
  • PAR38 A reflector lamp for use in residential track and downlight fixtures. Ideal in retail, hospitality, restaurant, office and home applications. Dimmable, available in spot and flood beam spreads. Consumes approximately 18 watts and lasts about 50,000 hours. Replaces a 75W halogen and incandescent lamps.

The new line of Lighting Science LED retrofit lamps will offer a warm and pleasing light color, meet or exceed Energy Star energy efficiency standards, and be UL certified. Operating samples of the new Lighting Science retrofit lamps will be shown and demonstrated at the California Governors' Global Change Summit 2 in Los Angeles.

"Lighting Science is proud to introduce its next generation of LED replacement lamps to the attendees at this year's California Governors' Global Change Summit 2. It is an ideal platform to showcase an environmentally responsible and sustainable alternative that makes economic sense," said Gibler. "We are very excited about the opportunity to be able to make a meaningful contribution to the global energy challenge."

Replacing just one 60W halogen lamp in each U.S. household with a current Lighting Science SoL R30 13W LED lamp would reduce energy consumption by 9.6 billion KWH, which is equivalent to:

  • Eliminating CO2 emissions from the electricity use of 956,901 homes for one year.
  • Greenhouse gas emissions avoided by recycling 2,379,054 tons of waste instead of sending it to landfills.
  • Carbon sequestered annually by 176,903,984 tree seedlings grown for 10 years.
