Kathi McNally trekked from her family’s store on The Boulevard to Huntington Beach Pier Plaza to man a booth at last weekend’s Go Green Expo to show expo visitors What’s now available in Eco-friendly LED lighting.
Also in the booth were Dan Porter of Porter Lighting Sales Inc. In Fullerton and Lindsey Alex of Focus Industries, a lighting manufacturer based in Lake Forest.
One of those eco-friendly solutions that falls in the category of “possible gift for husband who reigns as bare cue king” is a barbecue light. The stem plugs into an outdoor outlet, usually an outlet that’s built right in to an “outdoor kitchen.”
If your barbecue king is particular about color, a powder coating can be applied to the stem that matches just about any sort of scrap you can provide, from carpet to paint to tile.
The item that immediately caught our eye mated a tiki torch with an electric light. It’s available in two sizes, small (4.5″ x 25″) and large (7″ x 77″).
The torch holds up to 20 ounces of fuel that allows around ten hours of burn time. Its wick is three-quarter-inch round braided fiberglass.
The electric lamp can be eco-friendly if you choose an OMNI LED over an incandescent bulb. An amber LED would compliment the natural light of the torch.
For the stem, you can choose from either brass or natural bamboo.
New LED lighting is also a available as area and path lights, directional and underwater, and in a spectrum of colors including a warm white light.
The icing on the cake is opening your electricity bill to see how little power you pay for with LED lighting.
