MEGAMAN®, a pioneer in the eco-lighting industry, is launching the Global Saving Marathon, a campaign dedicated to saving energy and environmental resources.The campaign is launched in conjunction with an eco-lighting solutions exhibition, which showcases displays and seminars on the benefits and use of energy-saving lighting solutions in varied residential and commercial situations, held at the Bangsar Village II Shopping Complex from April 21 to May 28, 2010.
Albert Chan, Director, MEGAMAN® Malaysia, said that there was a need to raise awareness amongst consumers to let them know how easy it is to make savings in the home and environmental resources, just by switching to energy-saving lamps.
“As the earth runs low on resources, we need to collectively make a conscious effort to cut down on the demand for energy, and the emission of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere,” he said.
“A single energy saving lamp can save up to 80% in energy as compared to conventional light bulbs, and even switching a single bulb can create savings of up to hundreds of ringgit, and hundreds of kilograms of carbon dioxide emissions over a period of almost 2 years.”
“MEGAMAN® light bulbs have a lifespan of 15,000 hours, and in terms of energy saved, each light bulb would therefore produce 10,000 green hours.
“We would like to urge the public to join us in purchasing a light bulb at the very special price of one ringgit, and contribute to our goal of saving the next one billion green hours, right here in Malaysia, while also doing their bit for charity” he said.
“We hope that this will spark a change in lifestyle and energy consumption in the planning and usage of lighting solutions in Malaysia. With over 400 models in the MEGAMAN® range of energy-saving lighting, we are confident that consumers and trade professionals alike will be able to find solutions for all areas of lighting, be it indoor or outdoor, for a multitude of purposes,” he added.
Chan stated that apart from the home, the campaign and exhibition were also directed at professionals in the property development hotels, shopping malls, retail boutiques, F&B outlets and interior designing industries.
“Our exhibition also works towards the aim of creating change in the way lighting is planned and used in Malaysia, as we showcase the benefits of eco-friendly lighting, and examples of how to apply the many different lighting solutions to different types of situations, and we hope to help trade professionals be more informed and skilled in this area,” he added.
The Global Saving Marathon will run from April 21 to May 28 and consumers may purchase their light bulbs from the MEGAMAN® concept store, Amazonlite, located on level 1 of Bangsar Village II, and Homefix outlet.
Seminars will also be held during this period on ways of using MEGAMAN® Eco-lighting solutions for various types of buildings and establishments, such as Residential, Commercial buildings, Shopping Malls, Retail outlets, Hotels. For Seminar registration, please call 03-2282 9129

In 2005, MEGAMAN® made a remarkable breakthrough in compact fluorescent lighting technology. It launched the first dimmable energy saving lamp, DorS DIMMING, which can be dimmed with a conventional light switch.
