Seven Myths of LED Lighting Seven Myths of LED LightingWed, Jun 15, 2016 @ 5:30 PM to Wed, Jun 15, 2016 @ 8:00 PM

Presentation Overview: Seven Myths of LED Lighting

LED lighting is no longer new, but some common misconceptions remain. This session will review seven of the most popular “hot-button” points about LED lighting, explain the misunderstanding and share how users can turn them from a negative to a positive aspect of lighting.

 • Often times, when discussing Energy Efficient product, the approach taken is "all or nothing". To introduce Energy Efficient lighting into a home does not necessarily mean EVERY lighting fixture must be efficient. New technology may not necessarily provide a one-for-one replacement for incumbent technology. There may be heretofore unexpected advantages. By properly selecting energy efficient product and using them where they add value and function, the end result may turn a perceived negative into a positive.

Cost: Member: $35  Non members: $45  Students: Free

Details:  A light dinner will be served.  Program to immediately follow.

CEU Credits: Length: 1 Hour (0.1)
