Honolulu, HI –8/5/2006 =
PRNEWSWIRE -Permlight Products announced today that it is
working with Hawaiian Electric Company and the State of
Hawaii to encourage rapid adoption of LED lighting in
hotels, business and residential applications to
substantially reduce power consumption.
The State of Hawaii’s electrical power
is almost completely generated by oil and with increased
barrel pricing and increased military housing in the State
both power pricing and capacity are being strained.
The aggressive discount pricing program
allows companies to purchase products from Permlight’s
online store with a 30% discount for August, September and
October of 2006.
“In our recent meeting with hotels,
homebuilders, and businesses we saw a way to solve their
energy problems by helping these customers move to LED
lighting quickly,” commented Stephanie Moon, Permlight
Residential Sales Manager. “Our products consume less power
than incandescent and fluorescent and generate less heat so
the tropical air conditioning loads can be reduced and
further save power.”
Permlight’s Enbryten Down LED recessed
can light consumes only 15 Watts and has comparable output
to 75 Watt incandescent and 26 Watt fluorescent lighting.
“We are excited to see so many people
and businesses eager to embrace the future of lighting and
solve our energy crisis by using technology available
today,” added Manuel Lynch, President and CEO of Permlight
Products. “Some hotels have calculated they can save
$1500-$2000 a month per floor of their hotels by switching
to LEDs – this is a near term energy solution!”
Hawaii also has a very high amount of
military housing on the islands. Since military personnel
do not pay their energy bills use of energy consuming air
conditioning and lighting are not regulated resulting in a
tremendous drain on the Hawaiian electrical systems.
Permlight’s energy efficient and low maintenance products
can substantially reduce military operating expenses and
reduce the drain on the state’s power systems.
Permlight is planning aggressive
educational LED lighting programs in the State of Hawaii
over the next 12 months and will be conducting monthly
seminars to educate potential users of the products on how
they can recoup their investment in the technology almost
immediately with reduced power and significantly reduced
