It all started with a spark: a flash of genius that would fill the basic human desire to see and experience the world. More than 100 years after the invention of that first light bulb that same human desire remains, but today’s generation of lighting is as different from Edison’s first light bulbs as smartphones are from the first telephones.
These sleek, streamlined fixtures are perfect for low bay retail, warehouse and industrial settings where brand image and overall performance are both priorities. Unlike traditional fluorescent fixtures with visible tubes, this advanced GE solution has an indirect light source that creates a more sophisticated impression while delivering an impressive 125-136 lumens per watt (LPW). Long 65,000-hour rated life slashes maintenance for added cost savings. Available in 1x4 and 1x8 models, they install easily and work seamlessly with energy management lighting control systems.
On Aug. 11, GE Lighting announced plans to phase out operations at the Mattoon Lamp Plant, 1501 S. 19th St., by late August 2017 unless the "idea generation period" yielded an alternative to closure.
