why choose creeThose of us in the lighting industry in Southern California make choices every day. When you design, specify, or install lighting systems for your clients, you make choices about which products will best suit their needs. At Western Energy Control Solutions, we make those same kinds of choices. So why did we jump at the chance to represent CREE® in the SOCAL market?

We actually had a number of reasons for choosing CREE, but we’d like to share three big ones—because we think they represent things your clients will value and appreciate.

Efficiency. Cree LED Lighting products deliver the same amount of light as conventional technologies—but use as little as 10 to 15 percent of the energy.  That can save your clients hundreds of dollars over the life of each light.

Longevity. A typical 65-watt incandescent light lasts for 2,000 hours.  A Cree LR6TM LED downlight has a lifetime of 50,000 hours (running a Cree lamp for six hours a day, it would last nearly 23 years!). That means your clients would have to replace their conventional bulbs 25why choose cree for commercial lightingtimes to match the longevity of the Cree LED. That’s a lot of replacing—not to mention the extra $465 in energy usage (at today’s rates).

Beauty. Energy efficiency and longevity are great, but you know that your clients want lighting that looks great as well. You probably have clients that love the energy savings that CFL lighting offers—but they hate the way they look. Now energy efficiency doesn’t mean they have to sacrifice ambience. Cree lights have a higher color rendering—giving everything they illuminate a more vibrant and lifelike look. Your clients can choose warm lighting, for a traditional, luxurious feeling (great for residential solutions) or cool lighting to create an effective work environment (it’s also great for homes that want a more contemporary look).

Why choose CREE? Your clients will love the way they look, the way they last, and the way they save energy and money.

Drop me a note today and I’ll be happy to help you find the Cree solution that’s right for your clients.
