Three models of Orion Energy Systemsí LED fixture were added recently to the DesignLights Consortium (DLC) Qualified Products List after third-party testing resulted in a 96.57 lumens per watt rating for Orionís LED high bay fixture.
Designed to perform at temperatures as low as Ė20 degrees Fahrenheit, Orionís LED fixture has been retrofitted in more than 3 million square feet of freezer and cold storage space in facilities nationwide in the past several months. Companies with Orion LED technology in their facilities include US Foods, Sysco, Americold, and Save-A-Lot.
The three approved Orion LED fixture models vary based on application-specific lens configuration. Orionís LED fixtures are designed to replace traditional high-intensity discharge (HID) and T8 and T5 fluorescent fixtures. Orionís LED fixtures use 123 watts compared with 400-watt HIDs and 298-watt fluorescents. Orionís optical design incorporates different lens combinations to optimize light output for various applications.
According to its website, the DLC is a collaboration of utility companies and regional energy efficiency organizations committed to raising awareness of the benefits of efficient lighting in commercial buildings. In order to be included on its QPL, a product must meet or exceed specific industry standards. QPL inclusion is required for commercial fixtures to be eligible for most utility-based rebate and incentive programs.
Orion has delivered more than 1.6 billion dollars in energy savings to more than 8,000 facilities, and its customers include 144 of the Fortune 500.
