Date Announced: 23 Apr 2013 April 23, 2013 – San Jose, CA: SWITCH® Lighting, makers of the only liquid-cooled LED A- lamp, today announced their 60 and 75 watt-equivalents, the SWITCH60 and SWITCH75, have earned ENERGY STAR® certification. Customers who purchase the SWITCH60 and SWITCH75 will now be able to take advantage of the accompanying price rebates offered by utility companies in many markets across the country. “Everyday home owners and commercial building customers alike recognize the ENERGY STAR brand as a statement of reliability, performance, and energy efficiency,” said EC Sykes, Chief Executive Officer of SWITCH. “These products meet the ENERGY STAR certification Standard A-Lamp requirements required by utility companies for rebates. The products are omnidirectional and the first family of lamps in both clear and frosted versions. We’re confident that our next generation of products will perform to the same standard.”Established in 1992, ENERGY STAR is a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) voluntary program which helps individuals and businesses save money and protect the climate through improved energy efficiency. ENERGY STAR certification is also one of the main requirements for products to qualify for utility rebates in LED lighting. There are currently over 100 utility companies in the U.S. supporting LED products with various levels of energy efficiency rebates.SWITCH LED A-Lamps provide the same warm, familiar glow of an incandescent light bulb, while using up to 80% less energy and lasting 25 times as long. They fit into standard light sockets, are dimmable, and can be used in the same manner as any incandescent or compact fluorescent light bulb. Unlike many competitors, SWITCH bulbs can be used in any orientation, any fixture, and any location. SWITCH bulbs pose no environmental hazards and have no toxic ingredients (unlike the mercury found in CFLs).SWITCH's family of LED bulbs use the company's patented LQD Cooling System™ - the most innovative and effective thermal management system on the market today. The LQD Cooling System is a blend of the company's overall electronic design and proprietary technologies: a coolant made of liquid silicone, and a patented, highly efficient and reliable electronic driver. SWITCH is up to 40% more effective at diffusing heat and cooling LEDs than typical air-cooled LED bulbs.Rebates are widely available across the U.S., but prices vary depending on location.
