Future Lighting Solutions enables Global Tech LED in converting HID street lights

Aug. 10, 2011
Date Announced: 10 Aug 2011 MONTREAL, CANADA -- Future Lighting Solutions is pleased to announce a successful collaboration with Global Tech LED, in implementing energy efficient LED solutions for state roadways and commercial lighting applications.“Replacing good fixtures with new ones is wasteful, and increases the payback exponentially,” explained Gary Mart, Managing Partner for Global Tech LED. Mart continued, “By converting existing fixtures to LED technology the payback period is much shorter.” Future Lighting Solutions provided optical engineering support, as well as LUXEON Rebel LEDs and 480V Philips Advance drivers. This successful combination of product and optical engineering will be incorporated into various High Mast State Roadway projects Global Tech LED is currently undertaking. “Global Tech LED is currently focusing its efforts where no other LED fixture manufacturer has gone before, reaching new heights by successfully replacing high wattage lamps (400-1000W) in high mounting applications from between 40-150 feet,” explained Jeff Newman, Managing Partner at Global Tech LED. “The High Mast project is yet another example of how Future Lighting Solutions works with customers to develop energy-efficient products, and assists them in accelerating the process from concept through to design and implementation,” said Salvatore Pepe, Americas Business Director for Future Lighting Solutions.
