New 6-Inch LED Downlight from Cree Now Available for Residential Applications

Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE), a market leader in LED lighting, announces general availability in late May of its new 6-inch LED downlight specifically designed for residential and light commercial use. Designed for both new construction and retrofits, the Cree CR6™ is expected to retail for under $60.

The CR6 is now ENERGY STAR® qualified and, at up to 64 lumens per Watt, boasts the highest luminaire efficacy of any residential ENERGY STAR-qualified downlight.

Cree CR6™

Featuring award-winning Cree TrueWhite™ Technology, the CR6 provides consumers with warm, beautiful light without sacrificing energy efficiency. The CR6 is a direct replacement for a 65 Watt 6-inch incandescent downlight and is dimmable to 5 percent with most standard incandescent dimmers. Delivering 575 lumens and using just 10.5 Watts, the new fixture is designed to last 50,000 hours and features a 5-year warranty.

“For the first time, there is cost parity between energy-efficient LED downlights and toxic CFL downlights,” said Gary Trott, Cree vice president, market development, LED Lighting. “Factor in the longer lifespan, beautiful color quality and higher efficacy, and the Cree CR6 makes choosing LED downlights a no-brainer.”

The Cree CR6 LED downlight will be shown at Cree’s booth #149 during the Lightfair 2010 show this week in Las Vegas.
