Cree Redefines LED Parking Garage Lighting Delivering Low Glare With Fast Payback

Stocks in this article: CREE

Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE) introduces the VG Series Parking Garage Luminaire, demonstrating Cree’s innovative approach to challenging lighting applications. Cree ® VG Series parking garage luminaires are designed to deliver optimal, low-glare illumination by intelligently eliminating direct view of the LEDs with a revolutionary optical system. The VG Series helps create a pleasing appearance while delivering high-performance lighting. Best of all, the innovative VG Series lowers total cost of ownership and can deliver payback in less than two years.*

With typical parking garages operating 24/7, managing energy costs is critical for facility managers and owners. The new VG Series delivers energy savings up to 73 percent compared to the outdated metal halide fixtures they replace, while simultaneously delivering exceptional illumination quality, which can help create a safer feeling in garages. The low-glare luminaire features a composite optical system combining a highly efficient internal reflector and a precisely designed prismatic lens. Contrast between bright and dark areas in garages can create safety concerns for building owners and garage users. The Cree VG Series high-performance optical system can help achieve lighting design uniformity goals and a comfortable, safer-feeling environment for both vehicles and pedestrians. Designed with simplified mounting solutions for seamless installation in most parking garages, the VG Series also delivers up to 10 percent desirable uplight, reducing the “cave effect” that is typical with existing LED luminaires and many conventional solutions lighting parking garages today.

“The VG Series was specifically designed for the unique challenges presented by parking garages,” said Greg Merritt, vice president, lighting at Cree. “With low initial cost and virtually no maintenance expenses, the VG Series is the ideal choice to transform any garage from a poorly illuminated and uninviting space, to a well-lit garage with aesthetically pleasing lighting—all backed by a 10-year limited warranty.”

The VG Series is sold through Cree lighting sales channels. Please visit www.cree.com/lighting/VGseries to learn more.

*Payback calculated against metal halide and based on commercial usage of 24 hours per-day and the national average of $0.11 per kWh electric costs.
