Say Goodbye to CFL and Incandescent:
Cooper Lighting has introduced the Halo RL56 LED Retrofit Baffle Trim. Capable of being used in both 5-inch and 6-inch compatible housings, the recessed baffle trim with an integrated LED module consumes a minuscule 9.4 watts while delivering over 600 lumens, which is comparable to a 65W BR30 lamp you would find in most recessed downlights. By changing an existing incandescent style trim out with this new LED offering a business could run this light six hours a day an entire year and still be under $3.00 for annual operating cost.(based on .10kwh)

Using Inductive Fluorescent For Hazardous Area Lighting
What Could Be Better Than LED?
LED continues to grow as a great alternative for energy efficient lighting, especially in sensitive hazardous ares. But the prices of LED still remain quite high, so I wanted to introduce you to another option for lighting hazardous areas in your facility. While the LED is a great option it is by no means the only one.
