aboutShedding New Light on LED Lighting
By Scott Szycher
LED lighting has come a long way in a relatively short time. And it’s not just the technology itself that has improved, providing better lighting while consuming less energy, thereby saving money for building owners and tenants. In recent years, the real revolution is the integration of LED lighting with the sophisticated building automation systems that are increasingly common in commercial construction. There are many LED options, however, and choosing the best solution is not a simple matter even for traditional lighting experts.
Celeste Wunder is President of International Marketing Management Inc. (IMMI), a minority-woman owned certified business that supplies industrial, medical, health care and scientific laboratory products to industries and government agencies. She has established a niche for herself as a solutions provider to building owners and electricians integrating LED lighting into their existing facilities and new development projects.
“I’ve seen how the industry has moved from fluorescents to LEDs, largely due to technological innovation, and also from government-supported energy efficiency rebates, which helps shortens their payback period on the investment,” said Wunder. She possesses two things of great interest to those in the market for lighting upgrades: an extensive knowledge of the LED lighting products available by working with manufacturers both in USA and China, and a similar knowledge of governmental support and rebates across the six New England states.
She prides herself on representing only products that are UL, DesignLights Consortium (DLC), and Energy Star certified, and thus are eligible for rebates from states with incentives in place. And that’s a real value-add for building owners weighing their lighting options.
