MegaLight is proud to announce the introduction of their new LED T8 Panel Light. These new LED panels replace current fluorescent panels, use up to 80% less energy compared to typical fluorescent options, and require less maintenance due to their incredible 50,000-hour lifespan. (See product specifications in Table 1.)
The MegaLight LED T8 panel is available in 1X4, 2X2, 2X4 sizes. 0-10V dimmable and non-dimmable versions are also available. Two installation options allow for the replacement of traditional fluorescent lights embedded into ceilings or suspended with hanging wires. With so many options, an ultra slim profile, and an environmentally-friendly, Mercury-free composition, the MegaLight LED T8 panel fits seamlessly into any location.
Dillon Jiang, MegaLight President, said, “This DLC Premium Certified LED panel light is the first of its kind to achieve 127 lumens per watt. It sets a new standard in the commercial and industrial lighting field. Megalight is proud to be one of the first companies to make this outstanding product available to customers.”
Fluorescent panel lighting is one of the most common types of lighting used in commercial and residential settings worldwide, including offices, shopping malls, hotels, restaurants, and hospitals. In the United States, an estimated seven billion square feet of office space is lit by traditional fluorescent lighting (IBIS 33512), which presents a huge opportunity for energy and costs savings. Replacing current fluorescent lighting with TLED panels globally could result in billions of dollars in energy savings.
In a single home or business, those dollars saved can make a huge impact. Over the course of a year, switching to the MegaLight T8 panel can save an estimated $4,500 in annual costs. That’s a lifetime savings of $46,171. (See Table 2 for full comparison.)
