38 • RETROFIT AUSTRALIA • VOLUME 2 NUMBER 2 2013 | Company Profile Retrofitting with Brightgreen LED lighting is one of the easiest, most effective ways to cut costs and carbon. We offer a range of top-quality retrofit products, from downlights and incandescent bulb replacements to tracklights and shoplighters. Specifically tailored for retrofitting, they're compatible with existing transformers, dimmers and halogen ceiling fittings so there's no need for major structural changes -- or even an electrician. By choosing Brightgreen, you also take the stress out of meeting legal requirements for light level and efficiency. Every product in our retrofit range matches the light output of its halogen counterpart, so you can simply replace each existing halogen and still get the same level of brightness. Our LEDs have lifespans of up to 70,000 hours, or roughly 30 years (as confirmed by independent NATA testing). For extra peace of mind, they're also covered by a three-year warranty. Brightgreen lights top industry efficacy charts at up to 72 lumens per watt, and run on 80 per cent less power than halogens. This makes it much easier to meet the BCA regulations of five watts per square metre. The money saved on power means these lights pay for themselves: the DR700, for example, has a payback time of around six months if used for 12 hours a day. Visit our retrofit calculator at brightgreen.com or download the Brightgreen app to calculate your own payback period, power savings and carbon savings. Because the DR700 is one of the higher-quality halogen replacements, it has been approved for use in state- regulated carbon-trading schemes, like VEET in Victoria and ESS in New South Wales. This means your savings may be even greater. We work with a number of accredited VEET and ESS partners: you can find your nearest stockist by visiting brightgreen.com. Brightgreen LEDs also feature a unique inbuilt thermal monitoring system to cope with our hot Aussie climate: if they overheat, the lights automatically dim. This prolongs LED life and drastically reduces the risk of fire. Brightgreen lights don't emit UV and are free from lead and mercury, which are found in CFLS and other LEDs respectively. This makes them safe to use and safe to recycle. Find out more about the Brightgreen Retrofit range by visiting brightgreen.com.
