“GE designed these outdoor LED products with our customers in mind,” says Tim Miller, global product manager, LED Fixtures, GE Lighting. “LEDs are the future of outdoor lighting, and with these product offerings, GE is a one-stop solution for all outdoor lighting needs. We’re committed to providing the best in LED systems in terms of performance, life and energy savings.”
 
This new generation of GE LED lighting products provides high uniformity to effectively light outdoor areas and reduce over-lighting, resulting in shadowing and energy waste. The majority of GE outdoor LED lamps offer more than 11 years of service life (based on 12 hours of use per day) to substantially reduce maintenance frequency and expenses. They also are RoHS compliant, containing no lead or mercury. 
 
“Many cities throughout the U.S. are making the investment in outdoor LED lighting systems for their long-term energy and maintenance savings and are replacing (high-intensity discharge) HIDs,” Miller says. “Nearly all of GE’s outdoor LEDs are assembled in the company’s North Carolina plant, which we are very proud to say.”
