Orion Energy Systems LED Fixture Receives DLC Qualification

Time: 2012-11-05

Recently, Orion Energy Systems’ three models of LED fixture were added to the DesignLights™ Consortium Qualified Products List after third-party testing resulted in a 96.57 lumens per watt rating for Orion’s LED high bay fixture.

Orion’s LED fixture, designed to perform at temperatures as low as -20 degrees Fahrenheit, has been retrofitted in more than 3 million square feet of freezer and cold-storage space in facilities across the nation in the past several months. Companies with Orion LED technology in their facilities include US Foods, Sysco, Americold, and Save-A-Lot.

The three approved Orion LED fixture models vary based on application-specific lens configuration. Orion’s LED fixtures are designed to replace traditional high intensity discharge and T8 and T5 fluorescent fixtures. Orion’s LED fixtures use 123 watts compared to 400-watt HIDs and 298-watt fluorescents.

According to its Web site, the DLC is a collaboration of utility companies and regional energy efficiency organizations committed to raising awareness of the benefits of efficient lighting in commercial buildings. In order to be included on the DLC’s QPL, a product must meet or exceed specific industry standards. QPL inclusion is required for commercial fixtures to be eligible for most utility-based rebate and incentive programs.

Orion Energy Systems has delivered more than 1.6 billion dollars in energy savings to over 8,000 facilities.
