Lighting Science Group Introduces "Factor 4"

Continuing its campaign to democratize ultra-efficient LED lighting, Lighting Science Group will unveil at LightFair International 2010 an affordable breakthrough in commercial lighting technology - Factor 4.

Built in the USA, the highly efficient 7x7x3 inch form factor is a quarter of the size and weight (8 lbs.) of conventional lighting products. Truly a breakthrough in sustainable lighting design, the Factor 4 luminaire is 75% more efficient than conventional lighting technology while providing equivalent light output. Furthermore, with optional built-in WiFi/mesh network capability, Factor 4 luminaires can be constantly monitored and controlled using a central network -- saving maintenance time and energy cost.

"We believe that the Factor 4 luminaire sets a new standard for high-performance and sustainable lighting that Americans can afford," said Zach Gibler, Chief Executive Officer, Lighting Science Group. "The ultra-efficient, yet compact, Factor 4 luminaire has the potential to save Americans hundreds of dollars in maintenance, replacement, and energy costs. At Lighting Science Group, we are continuing to push the boundaries of what is possible using LED technology to bring to market high quality, yet affordable, lighting solutions."

To ensure performance and reliability, the Factor 4 luminaire will be tested by an independent laboratory approved by the U.S. Department of Energy's CALiPER program. Factor 4 luminaires will be available in the second half of 2010 through lighting distributors and directly from Lighting Science Group. To see the new Lighting Science Factor 4 luminaire, visit booth # 2335 at LightFair International 2010, May 12-14 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
