With the increased awareness of global warming, new lighting technology must satisfy some minimum requirements before it can be readily adopted - conform to environmental initiatives, reduce energy costs, and offer brighter and higher efficiency solutions compared to what is being used today. Retrofits with LED technology are an excellent solution to these increasing requirements for a Green world.

Everlight Electronics Co., Ltd. (TSE:2393), a leading LED technology provider, announces a new eco-friendly series of LED Retrofit products that provide consumers lighting fixtures with lower power consumption.

Everlight's LED Retrofits include MR-16, GU10, PAR30, PAR38, and the A60 bulb. The mechanical dimensions and the electrical interfaces (GU5.3 for MR-16, E26/E27 for PAR30, PAR38, A60 and GU10) conform to the ANSI Standards*. Users can easily replace their existing light fixtures with Everlight's LED Retrofit series for architectural, residential, office and commercial applications.

The term "Retrofit" refers to the addition of new or modified technology into an existing object or system. Using LED Retrofits is one of the fastest ways to save energy and reduce CO2 emissions. In comparison to CFL technology, LED Retrofits are mercury-free making them the best green lighting solution available. In addition to energy savings up to 80% compared to ordinary halogen bulbs and incandescent lamps, LED technology saves on maintenance costs due to their longer lifetime. The average lifetime of Everlight's LED Retrofits is up to 40,000 hours** which means that they can be used for almost 18 years***. By using LED Retrofits, consumers can start to see the reduction in their electric bills right away and can expect to amortize the higher initial costs of the LED retrofits within 26 months****.

With LED technology dominating the future lighting market, Everlight Electronics' advantage is its vertical integration. Everlight uses its own LEDs to integrate them into the LED Retrofit Lamps which ensures the reliability and performance of the completed Retrofit. Everlight controls the quality of each lighting fixture through our capabilities in LED packaging, module design, heat sink design, final assembly and test.

Striving to meet the high efficiency, eco-friendly and sustainable use of the lighting market, Everlight considers both technology progress and environmental protection for the earth now and for future generations.
