With the Change of a Light Bulb, The Helen Lamp will Help the GSA Meet its 2015 Energy Reduction and Sustainability Goals


Santa Clara, Calif., – September 18, 2014 – Lunera® Lighting, Inc., a leader in lighting innovations accelerating the transformation to advanced LED technology, is pleased to announce the inclusion of the Helen Lamp in the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Green Proving Ground (GPG) program for fiscal year 2014. The selected Helen Lamp is a plug and play LED replacement for compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) commonly used in commercial buildings.

Through early adoption and deployment of transformational building technologies, the GPG program drives environmental performance in federal buildings and leads market transformation. By leveraging its national building portfolio to establish test locations for third-party evaluation of promising commercial technologies, the GSA uses these results to accelerate market awareness of tested high impact, environmentally friendly technologies.

"The Helen Lamp is one of only nine selected technologies in a field of over 120 entrants," said Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Tom Quinn. "We are thrilled that the GSA recognizes the significant impact a simple to install retrofit product like the Helen Lamp can bring to its vast real estate portfolio."

The Helen Lamp is a plug and play LED replacement for four-pin and two-pin CFLs. Lunera's BallastLEDTM technology enables the Helen Lamp to operate directly off of a fixture's existing ballast. This innovation eliminates the need to modify or replace a fixture to realize the benefit of LED technology, dramatically reducing installation time, disruption and cost.

Creating beautiful, near-daylight quality light; the Helen Lamp offers four color temperatures to create the right lighting for any indoor environment. End users can choose configurations for horizontal or vertical applications and simply plug it in to enjoy the results.

The Helen Lamp saves more than 50 percent in energy consumption compared to the 26-watt CFL it renders obsolete. Energy savings soar up to 60 to 70 percent when replacing a 32-watt or 42-watt CFL. 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, significantly reducing maintenance costs.
