New recognition for Lunera Helen Lamp

February 2015

LUNERA Lighting, Inc, a leader in lighting innovations accelerating the transformation to advanced LED technology, has announced that its Helen Lamp has earned the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s Energy Star certification.

The accolade means it meets the strict energy efficiency performance levels set by the EPA. The Helen Lamp is the first plug and play LED replacement for compact fluorescent lamps (CFL), commonly used in commercial buildings, that has achieved this distinction.

Lunera’s revolutionary BallastLED technology enables the Helen Lamp to operate directly off a fixture’s existing ballast. This innovation eliminates the need to modify or replace a fixture to realise the benefit of LED technology, dramatically reducing installation time and LED conversion costs.

The Helen Lamp offers four colour temperatures to create the right lighting for any commercial indoor environment; creating beautiful, near-daylight quality light.

It saves more than 50 per cent in energy consumption compared to the two- or four-pin 26-watt CFLs it renders obsolete. Energy savings can escalate up to 60 or 70 per cent when replacing 32-watt or 42-watt CFLs. Backed by a five-year warranty, the long 50,000-hour lifespan of the Helen Lamp eliminates a minimum of five CFL lamp replacement cycles, virtually eliminating routine maintenance costs.

The EPA introduced Energy Star in 1992 as a voluntary, market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency.
