FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – January 7, 2014; Andover, MA

Yankee Alliance announces a new contract with Emergence Technology Consultants, LLC., to provide Emergence’s newest technological development, Healthy-Lite™ Direct Replacement Linear LED Lamps for healthcare concerns.  Emergence’s technology requires zero electrical rewiring or electrical contractor installation costs verses other currently available linear LED products. This now makes switching to LEDs as simple as changing a light bulb.

Using half the energy of a traditional fluorescent light bulb they provide instant brightness, producing a 110° beam that spreads illumination uniformly without glare in near-full spectrum quality light that minimums heat emissions and reduces building cooling system loads considerably. In a hospital or healthcare facility this can equal literally millions of dollars in reduced electricity, maintenance and environmental disposal costs yearly for up to 5.7 years with a simple payback, often in less than two years. 


Emergence’s Healthy-Lite™ Direct Replacement Lamps are designed to be powered by any existing instant start ballast. They have no traditional internal power adapter which minimizes electrical components prone to failure.  Its patented design incorporates environmentally friendly passive modules within the tube that reduce internal heat generation which enhances lamp reliability, improves efficacy, color stability and extends life expectancy with no UV light, mercury, or failure points.  They are available in any size from two to eight feet.  In a traditional four-foot tube they consume only 17 watts of power while producing an amazing 2,100 lumens of light or 50% less energy than a comparable fluorescent light bulb. 


“The technology of Direct Replacement Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) for traditional linear fluorescent bulbs represents a rare convergence of technology and market need” stated Mr. Weinberg.  “LED technology is fully matured, and we have developed the manufacturing capabilities to provide our clients customized fluorescent replacement lamp technologies that no other LED companies retain”.

Emergence’s Direct Replacement LED Replacement Lamp technology adds extreme value to a highly successful product line which includes its Healthy-Lite™ LED Panel Retrofit Kit which reduces electricity consumption in a traditional 2x4 enclosed prismatic fixture by 65-72%, while providing equal or greater lumens at the work plane.

About Emergence Technology Consultants, LLC 

Founded by Howard G. Weinberg, well known as a strategic thinker specializing in unconventional approaches to the adaptation of “emerging” technology solutions for the U.S. Government since 1989, Emergence was formed first and foremost to provide the education required by senior executives and facility managers that has empirically documented reductions in needless electricity costs for general illumination with LED technologies Mr. Weinberg has designed and manufactured since 2008.
