The Maintenance and Operations Department with Palmer Conservation Consulting chose Cree LED lights because of the product longevity, low maintenance and the 10-year limited warranty.
“Cree had a 10-year warranty when everyone else offered seven years or less,” said Miller. “The lighting quality is there and the fixtures are good quality — well built.”
“TPS likes the performance, price point, and how it looks compared to other lights on the market,” said Ron Miller. “In addition, the lighting enhanced the look of the schools. Cree® luminaires come in many colors so we could choose colors to complement the architecture of each school.”
During the lighting project, outdoor lighting at 42 schools was upgraded in a one-to-one replacement with Cree LED lights. Using existing poles, OSQ Series luminaires replaced flood and area lights in the parking lot, CPY Series replaced canopy lights at the school entrances, Cree Edge™ Series replaced walkway lights, and XSP Series Wall Packs replaced existing accent lighting.
The crisp, white light of Cree’s luminaries can create a safe atmosphere for students, administrators and visitors. As important, the Cree luminaires are backed by Cree’s 10-year industry-leading limited warranty, providing investment protection.
