Austin, TX, United States, 2009/10/21 - DuraStreet Series LED Light Engine achieves national recognition by top venture capitalists, media and utilities.
EcoFit Lighting, a developer of high output LED street light fixtures, was selected the winner of the Clean Energy Venture Summit (CEVS) in Austin, Texas. EcoFit showcased its DuraStreet™ Series LED Light Engine and was awarded top honors from a panel of judges that included clean tech venture capitalists, media and utilities, beating out 19 other clean technology companies.
In addition to the national recognition EcoFit received from industry peers and investors, EcoFit also walked away with a prize package that included public relations services, IT services and legal consulting. “EcoFit Lighting is extremely grateful for this recognition. It was an honor to participate in CEVS with other outstanding companies that have a common goal – reducing energy demand and the carbon footprint associated with energy consumption,” stated Cason Coplin, president of EcoFit Lighting.
DuraStreet™, EcoFit’s flagship product, is the industry’s first high-output LED light engine that fits virtually all existing street lighting fixtures including cobra heads, shoe boxes, and other area and site lighting fixtures. The simple installation process requires less than five minutes, and virtually no training or special tools are required. Unlike most full-fixture LED street lighting products on the market today, DuraStreet™ enables customers to replace their current roadway lighting sources without generating the waste associated with replacing entire street lighting fixtures.
DuraStreet™ offers unparalleled energy efficiency, providing light output equivalent to existing high intensity discharge (HID) lighting fixtures while using less than half the energy. DuraStreet™ also requires essentially no maintenance. Using high-performance Cree® LEDs, custom-designed Fraen® optics and proprietary electronic power supplies, DuraStreet™ is designed to provide trouble-free performance for well over a decade in virtually all applications. Most importantly, DuraStreet™ products have been tested by independent third-party laboratories to meet all relevant performance criteria, including LM-79 photometry and LM-80 LED maintenance. The units are International Dark Sky Association approved, BUG rated and compliant with Energy Star FTE minimum requirements.
