Sengled plans to donate traditional LED light bulbs along with Everbright, a light bulb that includes a battery back up to provide 3.5 hours of light when electricity is lost, to the residents of the Nueva Maravilla public housing development, located in East Los Angeles. Everbright is particularly helpful in the Southern California region where electrical blackouts can impact up to 11 million people for up to 14 planned days. The teams are also exploring ways to incorporate Everbright into larger disaster preparedness programs throughout the region.
"We're thrilled with Sengled's willingness to contribute to our local communities," said Sean Rogan, Executive Director of the Housing Authority of the County of Los Angeles. "Reliable and sustainable lighting solutions are not often top priorities for our low income CARE members, but when the change is made, it makes a huge impact."
Sengled will kick off the partnership by donating roughly 2,400 LED light bulbs as well as 600 Everbright smart bulbs to Nueva Maravilla, which will help 500 households and over 1,000 residents. Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda L. Solis, as well as officials from the HACoLA and Southern California Edison will be at the installation event on November 17 to facilitate the donation and discus the benefits Sengled light bulbs provide residents, which includes an average yearly saving of $150 in energy costs.
