Cree LED Lighting Illuminates Petty’s Garage

Partnering with Greenleaf Energy Solutions, Petty’s Garage installed Cree’s LED lighting, featuring Cree's TrueWhite technology
Nicknamed “The King" of NASCAR, Richard Petty has endorsed Cree LED lighting after enthusiastically transforming his 100,000 square-foot garage with LED fixtures by Cree,

More than 700 Cree LED luminaires now illuminate the Petty’s Garage complex, which specialises in the restoration of high-performance vehicles, stock cars, drag racers and Petty signature cars.

According to Greenleaf Energy Solutions, when compared with the previous fluorescents, the installation reduces lighting energy usage more than 50 percent and decreases the number of light fixtures needed by 10 percent.

“We know that Cree produces the best LED technology in the world," says Stephen Moffitt, energy consultant, Greenleaf Energy Solutions. “Cree was the clear choice for Petty’s Garage."

“Cree LED lighting delivers the quality of light we need for the work in our garage, allowing us to focus on our business of redoing cars," continues Petty. “We turned these lights on, and they made our cars and shop look brand new. There’s really only one word to describe Cree’s lights – wow."

Cree CR24 LED troffers were installed in the main production facility with LR24 LED troffers and CS18 LED linear luminaires featured throughout the complex. The next stage of the installation will bring Cree Edge security and floodlights and LEDway streetlights to the property.

“High-quality, long-lasting LED lighting dramatically enhances the auto restoration experience at Petty’s Garage," adds Tami Timperio, vice president of communications, lighting at Cree. “Our LED troffers feature industry-leading Cree TrueWhite Technology with 90 CRI that really makes cars pop. Designed to deliver lifetimes of more than 50,000 hours, Cree’s LED troffers can virtually eliminate the time and expense associated with replacing fixtures for auto dealers and shop owners."

Cree showcased its LED lighting products at the National Auto Dealers Association Convention and Expo 2013 in Orlando at the weekend. “The King" signed autographs and photos with attendees at the Cree booth.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
