According to the U.S. Department of Energy, LEDs will save Americans $280 billion in energy costs over the next 20 years. But what is an LED system? What are its benefits and limitations? And how can they be incorporated into your jobs today? Join Philips Color Kinetics, a pioneer of intelligent LED illumination technologies, to learn more about this pervasive technology and how it will change the electrical contractor community’s perception of lighting.

At this workshop, participants will learn:

- What is an LED lighting system and how to incorporate within their projects
- General misconceptions about LED lighting
- Energy savings benefits and how it relates to EnergyStar, LEED, rebate programs and others
- The questions to ask when purchasing an LED system

Attendees will also participate in a hands-on demonstration where they will have the opportunity to install LED fixtures, incorporate control solutions and calculate the total cost of ownership of LED lighting as compared to traditional lighting sources.
