Lighting as a Service: New Tool or Old Saw?
by Lois I. Hutchinson
 
Forays into solar, energy storage, HVAC and lighting pitch the "as-a-service" model as letting owners focus on their core business by not investing in or maintaining expensive infrastructure upgrades. Without getting into the specifics of off-balance sheet exposure and tax liabilities, LED lighting retrofits, particularly connected lighting, can turn what have traditionally been capital-expenditure projects into lighting as a service (LaaS).

Oculus Helps Local Students to RISE
Last year, Oculus Light Studio came upon the opportunity to work with a local Civil Engineering and Architecture high school class - and we jumped at the chance. We were first contacted by DaVinci Science High School teacher Andrew McGregor, who asked us to be part of a multi-disciplinary professional team. The team guided Mr. MacGregor's 11th and 12th grade students through an onsite design-build project, covering the various fields of architecture, interior design, lighting, electrical and hands-on construction. What a great opportunity to get young people interested in the field of lighting.

A New Kind of LED Troffer
CONTRIBUTED BY
HUBBELL LIGHTING
A typical recessed LED troffer features a back-lit LED solution with a diffuser spaced away from the source. Lighting designers are frequently frustrated by the limitations associated with this standard. Through laser etched, acrylic light guides, the light in Vora 50L is emitted in a uniform manner across the entire surface of the fixture. By using this unique edge-lit design, "hot spots" that plague standard troffers are eliminated without any sacrifice to performance.
