Maxlite LED Wallpacks

We are stocking several Maxlite LED Wallpacks in our stores.  Our rep just sent me a video to post on our counter televisions, but you can take a look here:

MaxLite's MaxLED® full cutoff LED Wall Packs are available in 20-, 30-, 40- and 70-watts. These DesignLights™ Consortium (DLC)-approved wall packs were designed and engineered as maintenance free, energy efficient alternatives to traditional fluorescent, high/ low pressure sodium, metal halide, induction, and other types of lighting fixtures. Replacing 100- to 250-watt metal halide fixtures, these full cutoff LED Wall Packs eliminate upward illumination contamination of the night sky, while providing highly effective delivered lumens for outdoor illumination at hotels, garages, commercial buildings, public spaces, schools and universities, and hospitals. All full cutoff LED Wall Packs are available in 5000K (daylight) correlated color temperature (CCT) and maximize brightness (up to 4400 lumens) and have a long life of 50,000 hours, backed by MaxLite's 5-year limited warranty.

Their website also has an easy way to look up local utility rebates, including the new DCSEU program ($ 135.00 per fixture for the MLLWP40LED50DS)

Recycling of LED Lights

Recycling of LED Lights

My tED Magazine e-roundup, Green Room edition, just hit my in-box.  I thought this was an interesting article to pass along.

We've got information on bulb recycling on our website as well, including the Premium Bulb Eater (pick up a pdf all about it here) the safe, efficient way to recycle fluorescent lamps. For a demonstration contact Barbara Waterman, Energy & Property Management, via email:

Legislation changes for lamp replacements

Are you looking for information on lamp replacement options?

Visit to use an interactive lamp replacement tool and register for legislation updates.

General Service Incandescent Lamps. New efficiency standards set maximum wattages and minimum rated average lifetimes for many general service incandescent lamps. Some of the most popular include the 100W, 75W, 60W and 40W A19 shaped incandescent lamps. Depending on the lamp and state, these standards are phased in from January 1, 2012 through January 1, 2014.
Incandescent Reflector Lamps. As a result of EISA and Department of Energy (DOE) rulemaking, there are additional incandescent reflector lamp types for which the DOE can set energy conservation standards. There are also new efficiency standards for incandescent reflector lamps. Manufacturers must meet these new improved performance levels before July 2012.
General Service Fluorescent Lamps. New energy conservation standards for general service fluorescent lamps begin in July 2012 and establish minimum lumen per watt standards for a number of popular fluorescent lamps.

We've got this and other information posted on our website as well.
