Get A Grip On Lighting: Purple Light

If you travel to enough cities, you will find batches of purple streetlights. It might look interesting from a distance, but it provides poor lighting and it’s another case of a false promise that LED lighting will last forever. Many of these streetlights promised minimal care and 10-year warranties.

And then they didn’t keep those promises. Who is to blame, the lighting manufacturer or the people who believed the impossible claims.

Greg Ehrich, LC is the former President of the National Association of Innovative Lighting Distributors (NAILD) and owner of Premier Lighting, a progressive lighting distributorship.

Michael Colligan is an entrepreneur and inventor. He’s a subject matter expert in commercial and industrial lighting supply, lighting retrofits, and finding recycling streams for hard-to-recycle waste.
