Cree Sponsors LED Modules for Habitat for Humanity’s All-LED Home

Manufacturer of LED bulbs and fixtures, Cree, and the Habitat for Humanity of Durham have started the construction of the first Habitat for Humanity house that will be entirely lit with LED lighting modules.

Cree is funding the construction, while its employees will volunteer the project. The habitat home will feature the CR6 downlight, the latest LED downlight from Cree, and other Cree LED products.

The LED lighting supplied by Cree is a part of the $1.5 million pledge announced earlier by the company to offer LED downlights for all the Habitat houses to be constructed in the U.S. The lighting in the Durham house is expected to save an estimated $250 in electricity costs annually.

Cree sponsored Habitat Bike Rides such as the 2010 Cree Habitat Halloween Bike Ride, and the 2010 Cree Habitat Bull Moon Bike Ride to raise funds for supporting Habitat in building and selling affordable houses in Durham.

The Chief Executive Officer of Cree, Chuck Swoboda stated that the company strives to offer energy-efficient and cost-efficient LED lighting products that will decrease the energy cost burden on consumers.
