Lighting Science Group Lights Up ABC’s Extreme Makeover Home in Cocoa, Florida
Lighting Science Group, working with Lifestyle Homes, donated to ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition hundreds of ENERGY STAR approved DEFINITY LED bulbs in the Hurston family’s new home in Cocoa, Florida. The Hurston family’s home had been severely water damaged. The family’s Air Mobile Ministries brings clean water into countries following disasters, and the machines have saved countless lives following the massive and devastating earthquake in Haiti. The Hurston family has given so much and this was a great way to join together with our community in giving back.
The lamps which are coupled with a solar hot water heater, solar roof panels, and a wind turbine will give the Hurston family an electric bill of zero. “Lighting Science Group’s generous donation of ultra-efficient LED bulbs was a critical component for helping us build a net zero home for the Hurston family—the products were compatible with all the standard fixtures that were ordered and their output is simply brilliant,” said Jake Luhn, chief executive officer of LifeStyle Homes.
Season 8, Episode 16 featuring the Hurston family aired on Sunday, Feb. 13, 2011.
