GE Expands Outdoor LED Lighting Product Line with 10 New Offerings

GE Lighting Solutions, LLC expands its full-line of products for retailers and municipalities with 10 new outdoor LED lighting products that provide energy and maintenance savings with a rated life of 50,000 hours. On the forefront of GE’s outdoor product offerings are Evolve™ LED Area Lights and the Evolve™ LED Roadway Cobrahead, which was named Best-In-Class in the Next Generation Luminaires™ awards for design excellence in energy-efficient LED lighting.

“GE designed these outdoor LED products with our customers in mind,” says Tim Miller, global product manager, LED Fixtures, GE Lighting. “LEDs are the future of outdoor lighting, and with these product offerings, GE is a one-stop solution for all outdoor lighting needs. We’re committed to providing the best in LED systems in terms of performance, life and energy savings.”

This new generation of GE LED lighting products provides high uniformity to effectively light outdoor areas and reduce over-lighting, resulting in shadowing and energy waste. The majority of GE outdoor LED lamps offer more than 11 years of service life (based on 12 hours of use per day) to substantially reduce maintenance frequency and expenses. They also are RoHS compliant, containing no lead or mercury.

“Many cities throughout the U.S. are making the investment in outdoor LED lighting systems for their long-term energy and maintenance savings and are replacing (high-intensity discharge) HIDs,” Miller says. “Nearly all of GE’s outdoor LEDs are assembled in the company’s North Carolina plant, which we are very proud to say.”

Area Lights:
