Orion Energy Systems LED Fixture Tests at Better Than 96 Lumens Per Watt, Earns DLC Qualification

MANITOWOC, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Three models of Orion Energy Systems' LED fixture were recently added to the DesignLights™ Consortium Qualified Products List after third-party testing resulted in a 96.57 lumens per watt rating for Orion's LED high bay fixture.

Orion's LED fixture, designed to perform at temperatures as low as -20 degrees Fahrenheit, has been retrofitted in more than 3 million square feet of freezer and cold-storage space in facilities across the nation 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. Orion's LED fixtures are designed to replace traditional high intensity discharge (HID) and T8 and T5 fluorescent fixtures. Orion's LED fixtures use 123 watts compared to 400-watt HIDs and 298-watt fluorescents. Orion's superior optical design incorporates different lens combinations to optimize light output for various applications.

According to its Web site, 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 the DLC's 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.
