December 11, 2011... San Francisco, California USA--The City of Mountain View, in an effort to lower its energy bills, has replaced fluorescent lamps at their Community Center with energy-efficient DirectLED from Bay Area LED light bulb company, GreenVantage Solution. After testing several brands of energy-efficient lighting solutions, Dale Adams, Facilities Supervisor for the city of Mountain View, decided on EarthLED's DirectLED 4-foot T8 replacements and installed them in classrooms and office areas at the Community Center. The T8 replacements are rated at 15 watts as compared to the 34 watts of the regular 4-foot fluorescent bulbs.
The DirectLED FL series is a replacement for traditional T8, T10 and T12 fluorescent tubes, bringing LED technology to environments never before possible. DirectLED is the most comprehensive family of LED Linear lighting available, from 12-in to 8-ft to U-Bent.
Among the many benefits of DirectLED 4-foot lamps are long-life, extreme efficiency and flexible voltage. DirectLED has a 50,000+ hour lifespan and are more than 80% more efficient than traditional fluorescent tubes. There is no ballast required thus allowing even more energy to be saved. It can also be used in AC 110 - 277V or DC 12V input environments. It also features a shatter-free design and has no mercury. The DirectLED is one of the first and only LED fluorescent retrofit solutions to be both UL classified for safety at 100-277VAC and to have undergone stringent, independent LM79 testing to ensure both safety and verified performance.
"Kudos to Dale Adams and City of Mountain View for being one of the first cities in the Bay Area for going green and installing LED fluorescent tube replacements in their public spaces. The city is progressive in being environmentally friendly and active in reducing their carbon footprint. I'm happy to say that the City of Mountain View continues to use our DirectLED 4 foot tube replacements and also have installed them in various water pump stations throughout the city," says Christine Capulong of GreenVantage Solution.
