Promises Kept vs. Promises Made
The lighting industry is undergoing a disruptive change in technology for the first time in over 100 years. Analysts predict that LED lighting will become the predominant light source within a few years.

Commercial building owners are open to change based on the promise of digital LED technology's: dramatic energy and maintenance savings; reduced environmental impact; and on Lunera's promise of delivering these benefits while improving the quality of light and fixture design to enhance the space for a building's occupants. Obtaining accurate information about LED lighting is key to making an educated product choice.
