EcoFit Lighting Selected to Compete at the 2009 Clean Energy Venture Summit

AUSTIN – October 9, 2009 – EcoFit Lighting, ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­a developer of high output LED street light fixtures, is pleased to announce they have been selected to compete at the Clean Energy Venture Summit (CEVS) on Oct. 14 and 15 at the AT&T Conference Center. EcoFit Lighting will be showcasing its DuraStreetâ„¢ Series LED Light Engine on Oct. 15 at 2 p.m. CST.

DuraStreet is the industry's first high-output LED light engine that fits virtually all existing street lighting fixtures including cobra heads, shoe boxes, and other area and site lighting fixtures. The simple installation process requires less than five minutes, and virtually no training or special tools are required. Unlike most full-fixture LED street lighting products on the market today, DuraStreet enables customers to replace their current roadway lighting sources without generating the waste associated with replacing entire street lighting fixtures.

DuraStreet offers unparalleled energy efficiency, providing light output equivalent to existing HID (high intensity discharge) lighting fixtures while using less then half the energy. DuraStreet also requires essentially no maintenance. Using high-performance Cree® LEDs, custom-designed Fraen® optics and proprietary electronic power supplies, DuraStreet is designed to provide trouble-free performance for well over a decade in virtually all applications. Most importantly, DuraStreet products have been tested by independent 3rd party laboratories to meet all relevant performance criteria, including LM-79 photometry and LM-80 LED maintenance. The units are International Dark Sky Association approved, BUG rated and compliant with Energy Star FTE minimum requirements.
