  1. 1. Appalachian Lighting SystemsDesigning, manufacturing (U.S.) and deploying best-quality LED lighting since 2006.
  2. 2. Appalachian Lighting Systems, Inc. Who we are: Western Pennsylvania company that specializes in the development and manufacture in the U.S. of high-powered, ultra energy-efficient, Solid State Lighting (“SSL”) fixtures. Our Vision: To design, engineer, and produce a superior quality commercial SSL lighting product – Solid State Lighting is ALL we do! Our Commitment to the highest level of SSL Industry Standards:  7th SSL manufacturer (of 227) accepted into the Department of Energy(DOE)’s Solid State Lighting Advocates Program  Have pioneered a number of critical industry firsts in intelligent lighting designs with patents and patents pending  Conduct (and provide for our customers) independent, third-party tests of our lighting fixtures  Track and publish auditable Product Reliability data—over 99%!2
  3. 3. Why ALSI ALLED® Solid State Lighting?  We believe the long term trend for electricity prices will continue upward – likely for next 10 -15 years  Current lighting technology is analog, very inefficient, and over 100 years old  Worldwide concern over green house gas emissions  ALSIs lighting offers 70 to 90 percent savings and is rated to last 15 to 25 years with no maintenance  ALSI lighting is digital in design and fully intelligent through its ALLink™ adaptive control systems capability  The highest quality lighting in the world! Less than one percent failures since 20063
  4. 4.

  9. 9. Why ALLED® Luminaires are Superior  Fully integrated design - Customer does not have to contract with multiple vendors and vendor components  Thermals – the world’s ‘coolest’ running and longest lifetime rated light  ALLink™ - the world’s most intelligent integrated lighting technology  Smart Surge™ - the world’s most intelligent and robust integrated electronics protection  Photo Sensor – the world’s first digital light sensing device. No more traditional photo cell ‘add-on’  Reliability – the world’s most reliable solid state lighting  Lumen Depreciation Neutralization– ALLink™ can allow any potential effects of long term lumen depreciation to be neutralized out to the rated luminaire lifetime9
  10. 10. Fully Integrated Design  Passive thermal cooling for LED’s – no moving parts  All electronics and light sensing capability is internal to the light  No external third party photo cell  No external components and third party adaptive control system.  No more conflict to resolve when third party components fail, or integration issues  Transformer and Smart Surge™ protection is internal to the light and integrated with ALLink™10
  11. 11. Thermals – The world’s ‘coolest’ running and longest lifetime rated light  Fully passive design – no moving parts  LED’s will last for a very long time if ‘driven’ at cool temperatures. Rated lifetime will drop dramatically if LED’s are not properly thermally cooled, and if they operate in the 85 to 105 degree Celsius range  ALSI luminaire LED’s operate in a range of 30 to 55 degrees Celsius at an ambient temperature of 20 degrees Celsius  Because of the quality integration of the entire ALSI lighting package, this allows for a calculated rated lifetime of ALSI luminaires in excess of 150,000 hours before the LED’s will have depreciated to L70, or 30 percent lumen depreciation  For instance, through third party calculation, it is estimated the CL2 canopy light will operate for over 100,000 hours before lumen depreciation will arrive at L85, or 15 percent reduction in lumen output  With ALLink™ however, the light output can be increased by 15% to fully neutralize such depreciation11
  12. 12. Lumen Depreciation - Not an Issue withALSI SSL Product ALSI12
  13. 13. ALSI SSL Product Thermals ExampleALSI CL2 – UL 1598 Test Results13
  14. 14. ALSI CL2 – UL 1598 TestResults Calculated Rated Lifetime to reach 15% and 30% lumen depreciation. Translation: If the CL2 were operated 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, it will take 11.5 years for the LED’s to depreciate 15 percent14
  15. 15. ALLink™ - The world’s most intelligent integrated lighting technology  Minimal required training  Web-based Monitoring and Control Integrated into the Fixture/DC Side  Dashboard with Google earth RF-Wireless and GPRS/GSM technology interface Fault Monitoring & Alarm Notification  Unlimited Dimming capabilities Scalability  Unlimited ON/OFF Scheduling Report generation  Easy integration with other systems Smart Metering  Remotely operated from anywhere in City Emergency Services integration the world  Lumen Depreciation Offset15

  22. 22. Smart Surge™ - The world’s most intelligent and robust integrated lighting electronics protection  The primary reason why solid state lighting (SSL)will fail is due to improper long term protection to the light’s electronic components  Virtually all SSL manufacturers incorporate surge protection of 4kVA to 10kVA and will survive only one such surge event before light failure  ALSI’s Smart Surge™ is intelligent and is integrated into ALLink™ and will notify ALLink™ if it has incurred a surge event  Smart Surge™ is designed and tested to withstand up to 30 surge events of up to 10kVA before the light will fail  However, since it will have notified ALLink™ of multiple surges, either the cause of such line surges can be addressed prior to light failure, or the Smart Surge ™ board can be replaced prior to light failure22
  23. 23. ALSI Photo Sensor – The world’s first integrated digital light sensing device  No more traditional photo cell ‘add-on’  Traditional photo cells can fail after two or three years. Labor costs to change can be $100 - $200  ALSI Photo Sensor fully integrates into ALLink™  Fully programmable for light sensitivity through ALLink™  Serves as backup to ALLink On/Off scheduling  Designed to last for rated lifetime of luminaire  No maintenance necessary! The cost of any product is it’s full lifecycle cost, not the initial capital cost23
  24. 24. Reliability – The world’s mostreliable solid state lighting  To date, ALSI is also the only SSL company that publishes its product reliability data  No other SSL manufacturer has challenged ALSI’s data and claims. Until shown otherwise, ALSI ALLED® fixtures are the most reliable in the world  For instance – the CL2 canopy series light has surpassed 25 million field hours of operation – and has not incurred a single luminaire failure!  The following chart shows the reliability of ALSI fixtures through three generations of development and five years of manufacturing:24
  25. 25. ALSI ALLED® Luminaire Performance As reported on the home page of ALSI’s website as at 4/28/2012 Combined Product Operating Hours 78,517,238 Product Operating Reliability Rate 99.23% Overall Power Consumption Reduction 77.1% Contributed CO2 Reduction to date (lbs) 18,209,925 Contributed SO2 Reduction 72,304 Contributed NOx Reduction to date (lbs) 28,11825
  26. 26. Lumen Depreciation Neutralization  Most manufacturers over drive their LED’s to increase light output. If luminaires are ‘driven’ at higher milliAmp levels and not properly thermally cooled, rated lifetime levels to L70 will be greatly reduced  Even if the luminaires are engineered to ALSI standards, the LED’s will nevertheless incur some depreciation in lumen output over their rated lifetime.  ALSI luminaire lumen output is engineered to depreciate no more than 15 percent over their first 100,000 hours of operation  ALSI’s power systems are designed to drive the luminaires well below their actual rated capability  Because the luminaires are already running quite ‘cool’, any lumen depreciation over time is greatly minimized  Even so, with the integrated ALLink™ adaptive control capability, foot candle requirements can be maintained by slightly increasing the power output to neutralize any potential depreciation through the rated lifetime26
  27. 27. In Summary:  The market opportunity is massive  ALSI has world class technology  Our engineering standards are second to none  Our product innovations are where the market will want to go  We will protect our IP  We believe we will be a first tier leader in exploiting this opportunity …Our Future is Bright!27

  51. 51. DOE Lighting Facts Program Voluntary, free program developed by the US Department of Energy Designed to battle over-promising / under-performing products in the market Ensures SSL products live up to their claims and don’t “threaten consumer adoption” or “significantly delay widespread acceptance of this new technology.”* Use of Lighting FactsCM Label ensures customer that the LED Products found on the market meet their expectations of performance Product list backed by verification and independent 3rd party testing To view all products registered and approved to use the Lighting FactsCM label, go to *Source:, June 9, 2010 51
  52. 52. The Lighting FactsCM Label • ‘Nutrition Label’ for SSL products • To be used on product specification sheets, literature and/or packaging to provide clear and consistent labeling of five key areas of performance: – Lumens – Lumens per watt (lm/W) – Watts – Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) – Color Rendering Index • It is recommended you check the web site to make sure the product is on the Lighting Facts Product List and the values are exactly the same. • Only products on the list have been verified by the LM-79 test reports and may display the label.52
  53. 53. Testing and Verification of LED Life& PerformanceLM-79-08• Specifies a standard test method for measuring the photometric properties of SSL devices, allowing calculation of luminaire efficacy• Manufacturers are required to submit a copy of the IESNA LM- 79 test report for each product so that DOE can verify the data on a Lighting Facts label• DOE only accepts LM-79 reports from independent laboratories with NVLAP accreditation for LM-79 testing or from an independent testing labs recognized by the DOE CALiPER program• LM-79 reports can be misleading—can be done “in house”. Verify that testing was done with an independent, third part lab.53
  54. 54. Testing and Verification of Performance and LED Life• IESNA LM-80 – Specifies a standard method done by the Chip manufacturers for measuring the lumen depreciation of LEDs to calculate LED “Life” – Does not cover the LED luminaire or provide guidance for extrapolating lumen maintenance beyond the 6,000 hour measurement period• UL 1598 – Conducted at the same time as in-situ temperature measurements of Module, Array, Light Engine and Power Supply/Driver – Third-party independent testing• Technical Memorandum 21 (TM-21) – IESNA published new standard to estimate LED lumen maintenance and service life beyond 6,000 hours – Utilizes LM-80 data collected at multiple operating temperatures and drive currents 54
