Independence LED Parking Garage Fixture Is Approved by DLC

The DLC Listed U.S. Made LED Parking Garage Fixture Includes 10 Year Warranty and Earns Top Rebates to Help Save Money and the Planet

WAYNE, PA--(Marketwired - Apr 23, 2014) - Independence LED Lighting, the award-winning U.S. manufacturer of LED products, announced today that the DesignLights Consortium® (DLC) approved its high-efficiency LED Parking Garage Fixture for their Qualified Products List. Energy rebates in select markets will now cover up to the cost of the fixture. The DLC approval came on Earth Day 2014, a timely reminder that in addition to saving over 65% of energy costs, the fixture is also one of the most cost effective means to reduce CO2 emissions.

To view the DLC Qualified Products List, see: and search either "Independence LED" or the product #s below:

Product #s:   Watts/Fixture   Fixture Efficacy   Lumens   Color
VTW2-42250K-70   42.7w   101lm/w   4,313lm   5000K
VTW2-42950K-70   56w   101lm/w   5,365lm   5000K
VTW2-42240K-70   42.7w   92.6lm/w   3,954lm   4000K

Independence LED and Fixture Advantages:

  • Made in America - Quality Assurance since 2010 with Pennsylvania manufacturing
  • Strongest Warranty - 10 Year/60,000 hours on LEDs and external drivers
  • Top Rebates - Unprecedented ability to cover all or a majority of costs
  • Flexible Financing - $0 Upfront Cost and Lighting Service Contract options
  • Proven Track Record - Installations from the Fortune 100 to mixed-use properties: Parking Garage Case Study.

With some utilities offering $250 per DLC Listed parking fixture, the rebates exceed Independence LED's MSRP. Even without rebates, when replacing 175wmetal halide fixtures running 24/7, the Independence LED fixture saves over $137 per year per fixture at the U.S. average of $.12 /kWh, yielding ROI over 50% with paybacks under two years.

"Our LEDs have been a great solution to replace metal halide fixtures, but rebates now open a new opportunity to provide FREE products in certain markets," said Charlie Szoradi, CEO of Independence LED. "Plus, our solution widens the market to garages that have already switched to fluorescent tubes."

 "We congratulate Independence LED on the rebate-ready, DLC listed LED parking garage fixture and their continued commitment to advanced technology," said Mark Martin, Green Parking Council Board Member.

Independence LED was awarded the 2013 Urban Green Award for "Best Lighting Retrofit," by the U.S. Green Building Council.

Independence LED CEO Charlie Szoradi is available for interview.
