SATELLITE BEACH, Fla., April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lighting Science Group Corporation® (OTCBB: LSCG) one of the world's leading LED lighting technology companies, announced that it recently partnered with LED Source® and Hurricane Grill & Wings® to install energy-savings lighting in its restaurants.

Hurricane Grill & Wings®, a West Palm Beach, Florida-based restaurant chain, found it was able to reduce operating costs and ensure energy-efficiency by installing Definity™ LED lamps from Lighting Science throughout its franchised locations and maintain its company standard to ensure it operates as a responsible corporate citizen.

With the help of the design team from LED Source®, a lighting solutions provider, the restaurant selected LED lighting as the perfect solution to meet all its lighting needs. LED Source worked with Lighting Science to create the most advantageous payback for the franchise. For the dining areas, public spaces and back-of-house locations, Definity 18W BR40 LED lamps at 18W each and Definity 15W QBR30 LED lamps at 15W each were installed.

"We are extremely happy that our Definity Professional LED lamp line was able to provide both an energy efficient and cost savings solution for Hurricane Grill & Wings," said Jeremy Cage, CEO of Lighting Science. "The improved lighting will also elevate the diner's overall experience – just another reason for Hurricane's customers to keep returning time and again."

When compared to the original design using traditional lighting of the newly opened Pembroke Pines location, it is estimated that the annual kWh used would be reduced from 55,013 to 13,764, providing a savings of 41,249 kWh. In addition, the annual savings for Hurricane Grill & Wings, Pembroke Pines is estimated at $1,210 in air conditioning, $1,607 in maintenance costs and $4,537 in lighting energy. Total annual savings for this location is projected at $7,354 with a full return on investment in just less than 10 months.

By choosing the Definity LED lamps as the most appropriate solution for both in-energy efficiency and lighting quality, Hurricane Grill & Wings significant savings goal was met. Due to the superior attributes of the Definity LED lamps, the total number of lamps required to light the restaurant was reduced, allowing for maximum energy and maintenance savings for Hurricane Grill & Wings to be achieved.
