One Million Strong!

On Monday, Dec. 13th, we celebrated the production of our one millionth U.S. LED lamp. The entire team here did a really wonderful job coordinating the event, and we’d like to send a thank you to the whole Lighting Science Group family for making it possible to get this far.  During the event, Senator Thad Altman, Senator Mike Haridopolos & County Commissioner Mary Bolin had some great things to say about Lighting Science Group and the hard work we’ve been doing here.

What do one million LED lamps mean? One million LSG LED lamps means over 450 jobs created in the U.S. It means 280,032,480 lbs of carbon dioxide, 933,442 lbs of sulfur dioxide, 466,721 lbs of nitrogen oxide & 6,690 grams of mercury eliminated annually.  And, those first million are just the beginning… as our one millionth LED was a replacement bulb for the 60 – Watt incandescent, better known as “the energy hog.”  If you were unable to view the webcast of the event yesterday, you’ll find below some media coverage as well as the video from the event.
