Date Announced: 08 Sep 2008 TUSTIN, Calif. (Sept. 8, 2008) — Permlight Products, Inc., a leading provider of brilliant LED lighting solutions, today announced Brillia(tm), the company’s light engine division dedicated to collaborating with original equipment manufacturers to bring LED-based luminaires to market, including 100 individual LED-based fixtures through seven leading brands currently in production. “By creating and announcing Brillia, we are formalizing what we have been doing for the past four years, which is partnering with OEMs to expand the possibilities of solid-state lighting,” said Michael Keddington, co-CEO of Permlight Products, Inc. “Brillia was born from Permlight’s numerous successes collaborating with our customers to integrate bright, efficient, long-lasting light engines into fixtures and lighting systems designed for both residential and commercial use.” As a division of Permlight Products, Brillia is steeped in the company’s technological and industry acclaim, including garnering the “Top Ten Green Building Products” award for Enbryten’s LED luminaires line by GreenSpec and Environmental Building News. Permlight boasts a portfolio of 13 patents, and notably, in 2001, the company revolutionized the industry when it developed and patented a technology allowing the LED chip to be bracketed to a metal frame that reduces the amount of heat generated by each chip. This thermally managed technology provided the design flexibility required to advance LED lighting beyond the traditional glow of cell phones and alarm clock faces.Brillia builds upon Permlight’s rich history by applying its technological leadership and inventiveness to enable manufacturers to rethink the possibilities of lighting design, including how energy is conserved. By partnering with customers to meet their individual requirements, Brillia’s engineers are providing the world’s leading light manufacturers with the resources to bring to market cost-effective and environmentally friendly LED technology that is also aesthetically pleasing.The LED Lighting AdvantageAccording to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), LEDs have the potential to reduce electricity consumption for all lighting uses in the United States by 33 percent. The DOE further estimates that the cumulative energy savings with commercially viable LED applications, over the next 20 years, could add up 3,019 terawatt-hours – an amount greater than the energy currently consumed to illuminate all the homes in the United States today. LED-based lighting is increasingly in demand by lighting manufacturers, architects, residential and commercial builders, and those seeking an alternative to traditional incandescent and fluorescent lights to meet state energy compliance guidelines. Collaborating with lighting manufacturers, Brillia engineers develop luminaires that exceed the lumens per watt requirement of California’s Title 24 energy code and ENERGY STAR version 4.0 guidelines. Title 24 standards dictate that all new homes, additions, alterations to existing homes and most commercial buildings are required to meet the minimum energy efficiency standards.
