LED lamps for general everyday lighting


Two new lamps from GE Consumer & Industrial -- a 7-watt GE Energy Smart® LED PAR20 lamp and a 10-watt GE Energy Smart® LED PAR30 lamp -- enable restaurants, retailers and other commercial customers to make significant strides toward general lighting with white LEDs.

These products of ecomaginationSM, available as spots or floods, feature advanced optical control to concentrate the white LED light on the targeted area and effectively diminish wasted extraneous light.

While delivering consistent and crisp halogen-like color (82 color-rendering index) the company's new 10-watt, 3000K GE Energy Smart LED lamp produces 340 lumens and offers up to 80 percent energy savings compared with 45-watt standard incandescent R30 lamps (485 lumens) or 50-watt Halogen PAR30 lamps (630 lumens), so it's a perfect replacement if you can reduce your light levels.

Over a 20,000-hour rated life that's up to 10 times longer than standard incandescent or halogen light sources, the new 10-watt LED lamp delivers significant maintenance savings. Just like its 10-watt cousin, the GE 7-watt LED lamp (200 lumens) helps customers excel at cutting energy costs. It reduces energy consumption by 77 percent when compared with standard 30-watt incandescent R20 reflectors (200 lumens) and, if you can reduce your light levels, you can save even more compared with halogen 50-watt PAR20 lamps (570 lumens) over 20,000 hours. It features an 82 CRI and is available in both 2700K and 3000K, attributes that allow it to provide crisp, halogen-like color.
