Greentech Lead America: Evolucia, a pure-play LED company, said it is supporting President Obama’s efforts to fight climate change by offering energy efficient lighting to the community.

President Obama laid out plans yesterday to reduce carbon pollution and prepare the country for the impacts of climate change in a speech at Georgetown University in Washington DC.

In response to the President’s challenge to join a “Fight Americans can and will lead in the 21st Century”, Evolucia launched the “Evolucia Finance Evolved” program, a lighting solution with 100 percent financing and zero dollars down providing customers with an easy way to finance all elements of their purchases of Evolucia lighting products through Evolucia’s financing partners.  A variety of financing options are offered.

The company has also invested over $30 million in the design, development and manufacture of both interior and exterior commercial grade LED light sources.

Evolucia is committed to educate governmental, municipal and commercial markets on the benefits of switching to sustainable LED light sources.

With its Evolucia Finance Evolved program, Evolucia removes the cost and cash flow barriers involved in the retrofitting of both interior and exterior lighting. The program is designed to finance the installation of state-of-the-art energy efficient LED lighting and to help customers start saving dollars on day one.

“For example, the president pointed out the giant strides made over the past several years in car and truck fuel efficiencies,” said Mel Interiano, CEO, Evolucia Inc. “With approximately 44.9 million streetlights installed nationwide consuming 7 percent of all lighting energy used—those more efficient cars and trucks should be driving under equally more efficient street lighting.  With a switch to LED light sources, energy consumption could be reduced by more than 70 percent providing enough electricity to power 1.5 million U.S. homes and reduce greenhouses gas emissions by an estimate of 11 billion tons.”

Evolucia LED roadway lighting solutions have been saving energy at U.S. military bases such as Andrews Air Force Base, Fort Buckley and Camp Lejeune; at academic institutions such as Bentley University, DePaul University and Appalachian State Universityand have been lighting the streets of Tampa, FL, Boone N.C. and Sarasota, FL.

Evolucia products feature the proprietary Aimed Optics technology platform that aims the light exactly where it is needed eliminating light spillage and pollution, preserving the dark sky and improving light distribution by 20 percent over standard light sources. It helps in saving nearly 63 percent in energy costs.
