General LED Information

  • What does LED stand for and how does it work?

    LED stands for light-emitting diode is a two-lead semiconductor light source. It is a p–n junction diode that emits light when activated. When a suitable voltage is applied to the leads, electrons are able to recombine with electron holes within the device, releasing energy in the form of photons.

  • What are watts?

    Watts are the SI unit (the international system of units) of power, equivalent to one joule per second, corresponding to the power in an electric circuit in which the potential difference is one volt and the current one ampere.

  • What does CCT stand for?

    CCT stands for correlated color temperature.  This defines the color appearance of a white LED. The CCT is defined in degrees Kelvin; a warm light is around 2700K, moving to neutral white at around 4000K, and to cool white, at 5000K or more.

  • What is a Lumen?

    the SI unit (the international system of units) of luminous flux, equal to the amount of light emitted per second in a unit solid angle of one steradian (the center of a sphere subtended by a part of the surface equal in area to the square of the radius.) from a uniform source of one candela (the luminous intensity, in a given direction, of a source that emits monochromatic radiation of frequency).

  • What is input voltage?

    Power adapters convert the electricity from one voltage to another voltage, and sometimes between AC and DC. The Input is what sort of electrical system you need to supply to the adapter (i.e. what your power company supplies). Input Voltage is different depending on its residential service (100-120V sometimes 240V) or commercial service (120-277V). 

  • What does CRI mean and how does it work?

    CRI stands for Color Rendering Index and is a quantitative measurement of the ability of a light source to reveal the colors of various objects faithfully in comparison with an ideal or natural light source.  In general terms, CRI is a measure of a light source's ability to show object colors "realistically" or "naturally" compared to a familiar reference source, either incandescent light or daylight.

  • What are the different certification and why is it important?

    There are four certifications that are most important when it comes to light.  These certifications are UL, ETL, DLC, and Energy Star.  These certifications are important because they the stamp of approval from the NRTL (A Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory) or shows that a product has been tested in an approved laboratory to certify that the product meets the criteria of the lighting industry. 

    ENERGY STAR is the trusted, government-backed symbol for energy efficiency helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy-efficient products and practices. The ENERGY STAR label was established to: Reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants caused by the inefficient use of energy.

    ETL is recognized as an NRTL in the United States and, in a similar capacity, as a Testing Organization and Certifying Body in Canada by the Standards Council of Canada. A product bearing the ETL Listed Mark is determined to have met the minimum requirements of prescribed product safety standards.

    The QPL (Qualified Products List) is a list of LED/SSL products that have been tested at a DLC approved laboratory and that comply with the specified performance and energy efficiency criteria.

    The "Recognized Component Mark" is a type of quality mark issued by Underwriters Laboratories. It is placed on components which are intended to be part of a UL listed product, but which cannot bear the full UL logo themselves.

General Solar Information

  • Why go solar?

    Although there are many reasons to go solar these are what we find to be the most beneficial reasons. 

    1. Solar power benefits the environment.
    2. Solar energy helps you save money.

    4. Solar panels are easy and safe to install.
    5. Solar energy can be used anytime of the day.
    6. Solar energy is the future.

  • What types of solar electric systems qualify for the 30% Federal Tax Credit?
    • ANY complete solar power package, for home or business.
    • Product purchases that expand your existing solar power system and include at least one solar panel.
    • Solar System for RV and boat that has been accepted by the IRS as a second home for tax purposes.
