Published On
Nov 8, 2018

LED technology made a name for itself by providing massive energy and maintenance savings for street lighting and parking garages, but adoption was slower in applications like office, education, healthcare and retail, as the technology wasn’t ready for prime time. Today, LED is successfully being deployed in nearly every application once suited for traditional technology, and is providing major benefits for both installers and end users.

On Nov. 15, 2018, e-conolight and Electrical Contractor magazine held this free lighting webinar. Topics of discussion included:

  • Analyze the efficacy of LED technology compared to traditional technology today
  • Learn how continuous improvements in LED technology will benefit how we light our spaces
  • Gain insight into where technology can go and how long it will take us to get there
  • Examine the latest product offerings, as well as energy and marketing trends
