LED Landscape Training

Are you an electrician or landscape contractor? If so, then we have some training for you!




Kichler's Ron Carter is coming for these trainings:

Wed. May 25th from 11-2 in the Chantilly showroom (lunch will be served).

Thu. May 26th from 8:30-11:30 in the Arlington showroom (breakfast will be served).


Here's a little more info about Ron from his bio:
Ron’s continuing passion for landscape lighting fuels his desire to help contractors and distributors alike how to best understand these types of products and how to utilize them to their full potential with safety as the number one concern.

Having personally designed and installed hundreds of lighting systems over the 19 years he’s been at Kichler, Ron understands the business and knows what contractors go through from the quote, installation and even maintaining the system. He is also well aware of the pitfalls a contractor can go through when they inherit a system they did not install.

And here is what he plans to teach us:
~ A Brief History of LED
~ Why do we need LED?
~ How Kichler LED virtually eliminates voltage drop
~ How Kichler LED wattages compare to halogen wattages
~ Why does LED end up costing the contractor less money?
~ How do you sell a maintenance contract if you’re not changing the lamps?
~ Comparing an LED Installation to a Halogen Installation (The labor and the financial realities)
~ Should you use LED MR16 retrofits in halogen fixtures?
~ New Product Training


Please let us know if you would like any further information. If you are able to join us, please RSVP to Greg Tiedemann (gtiede@dominionelectric.com). We look forward to spending time with you!

Evr-Green: The Complete Solution to Plug-In Electric Vehicle (PEV) Charging


Here's the Leviton residential and commercial electric car charging products information I promised you last time!

The Evr-Green™ Product Line
Leviton offers a complete solution for residential, commercial and public plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) charging: the Evr-Green™ line of electrical vehicle supply equipment (EVSE). Evr-Green products are compliant with all industry standards and compatible with all major auto manufacturers’ electric vehicles (SAE J1772 compliant).

The line will include Level 1 and Level 2 residential charging products. These levels are defined by industry specifications with each level up representing a solution of higher amperage/voltage which reduces overall charging time.

Leviton’s Level 2 Evr-Green products are an industry-first “Plug-n-Play” system. This significantly reduces the complexity and cost of the charging stations by providing the option to separate the electrician’s visit to prepare the home from the actual purchase and deployment of the charging station itself

Evr-Green™ Certified Installer Program.
The Leviton Certified Evr-Green Installer Program builds on a contractor's experience and knowledge to ensure a quality installation of Leviton evr-green electric vehicle charging equipment. Program members are experts in their field and adhere to the highest levels of professionalism and workmanship. Offering free estimates, a warranty on workmanship and proof of being bonded and insured is a prerequisite of being included in this select group of qualified electricians/contractors.
