The municipality of Langenegg in Vorarlberg has participated in the nationwide competition called “Aus-trian’s Climate Protection Municipality 2009” and won the prize money of EUR 8,000. The municipality wants to give that money to the households of Langenegg in the form of the e5 Energy Box. With the help of this box they want to present new ways of saving energy and reducing electricity costs.
LEDON Lamp GmbH supports the municipality of Langenegg and has provided a total of 520 LED retrofit lamps at cost price. The respective LEDON LED lamp only needs 6 watt, is dimmable and replaces the classic 40 watt incandescent lamp. It saves up to 30 percent of energy costs compared to CFLs and compared to incandescent lamps it saves up to 85 percent. It is therefore a more than environmentally friendly alternative.
“We are at the same time very happy and proud to provide our residents with this e5 Energy Box put to-gether with the help of the prize money. Due to the innovative technology of LEDON LED lamps, it is particularly easy for everyone to contribute one’s share in reducing energy costs and increasing energy efficiency,“ says Georg Moosbrugger, mayor of Langenegg.
Since the middle of April, the e5 Energy Box worth 60 Euros is available for free for people from Lan-genegg and can be picked up at the town hall. It contains one LEDON LED lamp, a CFL energy-saving lamp, a switchable plug, an ammeter and a questionnaire. With the help of these items, residents are able to discover the various ways of cutting energy costs in private households. In addition to the box, households also receive useful information on reasonable energy usage. At this point, LEDON Lamp also supports the municipality of Langenegg in all questions related to the environmentally friendly LED tech-nology and corresponding energy savings.
The e5-programme supports municipalities that contribute to a sustainable energy policy. At the time, 30 different municipalities in Vorarlberg take part in this programme. Every e5 municipality has its own e5 energy team that is responsible for the implementation of energy projects. The Energy Institute Vorarl-berg provides the individual teams with technical advice. An independent commission awards the munici-palities with one to five “e”s, according to their performance.
LEDON Lamp GmbH focuses on the development, sales and marketing of high-tech LED retrofit lamps. Being a 100% subsidiary of the listed Zumtobel AG, LEDON Lamp benefits from the technical expertise of its parent company. For the time being, Europe will be the main sales area of High Power LED lamps. LEDON Lamp was founded in August 2009 and is based in Dornbirn, Austria.
LEDON LED retrofit lamps emit warm white light with excellent colour rendering and are therefore an ideal replacement for the popular incandescent lamps. Thanks to innovative LED technology, all LEDON lamps are highly efficient. Apart from the high luminous flux in combination with high efficiency, LEDON lamps also convince with their exceptional lifetime.
As opposed to CFL energy-saving lamps, LEDON LED lamps are free of toxic mercury. Therefore, they can be disposed of via simple electrical recycling – and need not be disposed of as hazardous waste. Furthermore, LEDON lamps achieve full output immediately, rather than taking time to light at full capac-ity, which is typical for CFLs. They achieve 100% luminosity immediately after switching on. LED retrofit lamps produced by LEDON do not emit UV-radiation and can be switched on and off without wear.
Low energy consumption goes hand in hand with the environmentally friendly technology of LEDON lamps. All lamps listed in the LEDON product range save up to 30 percent of energy costs compared to CFLs and compared to incandescent lamps they save up to 85 percent.
