Opened October 6, the Nancy Rutchik Red Maple Rill is the newest and premier addition to the Dallas Arboretum. The 2 acre rill features a collection of over 80 varieties of 200 signature Japanese Maples that follow a winding stream and paved walkways leading into the Martin Rutchik Concert Lawn. Rather than using the R40 175W mercury vapor lamps that would have required ballast boxes to be mounted to trees, Lighting Science Group worked with Unique Lighting of Texas to illuminate the area with the Definity PAR30 LED bulbs.

“While the gardens are beautiful during the day, at night the lighting is so wonderful it makes you feel as though you are in a magical land,” said Nancy Rutchik, commissioner and funder of the maple grounds.

The LED bulbs used beautifully highlight the trees without costing the Dallas Arboretum unnecessary electricity and maintenance expenses; the entire system consumes only 1830 watts.  That’s about the same amount of watts used for any average hairdryer and is dwarfed by the 21,350 watts figure required by a mercury vapor lamp substitute.

Visitors now continue to return to the gardens to see them lit in the evenings during the Arboretum’s Concert in the Garden series and for various after hour’s events and wedding receptions.

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.

This past month, has been incredibly busy for us here at LSG. Along with the launch of our new website http://www.lsgc.com, our CEO, Zach Gibler has had interviews with Bloomberg, CNN & Fox News.  The goal of the interviews was to shed some light concerning the challenges for quickly growing businesses to keep production in the U.S.  If you’ve missed them throughout the month, here are links to each:

CNN with Felicia Taylor… http://ow.ly/2QBBY

At the end of September, we also received word that we had the first ENERGY STAR approved LED lamp in the industry.  Everyone here is incredibly proud and thrilled of this huge achievement. And, since we heard that news from Energy Star, eight other LED lamps in the DEFINITY line have followed suit bringing us one step closer to being the leader in the lighting industry.

To really become the leader that we aim to be, it was decided that our Design Works team would join us at our main Satellite Beach location, putting all design & development under one very large roof. To those who are joining us here, we would like to send a huge welcome to Florida and we look forward to creating LSG’s Innovation Center here with you all!
