North Carolina Town Going Green With LED Technology
August 5, 2009

Philips Lumec has been chosen by the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians of western North Carolina to light their downtown streetscapes with their environmentally responsible LED lighting solutions. In doing so, they clearly place this town of 14,500 residents, located on the South end of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, in the vanguard of communities choosing environmentally responsible LED lighting technologies.

True to their long standing Native American tradition of sustainability, the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians of western North Carolina chose the LifeLEDâ„¢ by Philips Lumec as the light source for their downtown streetscapes. The LifeLEDâ„¢ is a highly efficient and award winning LED light engine, invented, designed, and produced by Philips Lumec.

Working in concert with ProctorHodge Architecture of Cherokee, N.C., and Hodge & Associates of Knoxville, Tenn., to upgrade the community’s 40+ year-old existing lighting system, the first three phases of the LED lighting system are to be installed by late summer, 2009.

For more information on LifeLEDâ„¢, visit the Philips Lumec website.
