    I found this podcast to be extremely powerful and spot on. There is a movement in bring lamps back. GJ6.6 new ANSI and pending IEC standards for T-LED’S. Which is a significant portion of the commercial market. If you would like to speak further on it, I would be happy to discuss.
    Thank you for your contribution to the world of lighting
