Lighting Science Group Sets a New Standard in LED Lighting Technology

Lightfair (Booth #247) -- One hundred and thirty years after Thomas Edison invented the standard incandescent light bulb, the next revolution in lighting is being led by NJ-based Lighting Science Group Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: LSCG) (LSG). The new light-emitting diode (LED) lamp is designed to replace the standard incandescent and compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) in homes and commercial environments.

Engineered to optimize light output, color, quality, life and overall performance, the LED replacement lamp is available in the most popular standard incandescent lamp or bulb shape -- A19.
Redefining standard lighting technology, LSG's replacement lamp provides light output sufficient for everyday tasks. Using only 7.5 watts, the new LED replacement lamp drastically reduces energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. This morning at 10:30 a.m. ET at the Lightfair International, Conference and Expo in New York City, Lighting Science's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Govi Rao will unveil the new dimmable, energy-smart and long life LED lamp that fits into existing standard sockets.
"We have all been waiting for a viable, energy efficient, replacement for the standard incandescent lamp for many years," said Govi Rao. "Our A19 LED lamp produces exceptionally warm, white light and uses 84 percent less energy than the standard incandescent lamp."
The innovative A19 replacement from Lighting Science is six times more efficient than the standard incandescent lamp and about 20 percent more efficient than comparable CFL alternatives. Additionally, LEDs last 20 times longer than incandescent lamps and up to six times longer than CFLs. LED lighting is also an environmentally responsible choice for homes and commercial buildings as it contains no hazardous materials such as mercury found in compact fluorescents. Unlike conventional fluorescent lamp technology, LEDs do not emit harmful UV rays and can be turned on and off as needed, requiring no extra time to reach full brightness.
"The extraordinary pace of innovation at play in today's world is transforming our ability to support sustainable initiatives without sacrificing light quality, added Govi Rao. "Our LED replacement lamp is at the forefront of a revolution in lighting -- respecting consumer and commercial demand for cost effective and high-quality lighting options that significantly reduce energy and maintenance costs while promoting a healthier environment."
The innovative A19 LED replacement lamp is the first in a series of LED replacement A-lamps that Lighting Science expects to deliver to the market in the third quarter of 2009.
