AURORA, Ohio, Nov. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TCP, the leader in energy efficient lighting technology is excited to announce its LED lamp series of products that feature a powerful combination of category-leading performance, function, and value, have earned the ENERGY STAR® certification. TCP is excited that its LEDs now carry ENERGY STAR, further confirming TCP's commitment, with one of the largest number of ENERGY STAR qualified lamps in the industry.

TCP's LED lamps provide the industry's best directional light output performance, by combining the world's leading LED driver componentry, optical design and manufacturing capability, making them excellent alternatives to traditional PAR halogens.  Our LEDs utilize an aesthetically pleasing aluminum housing which provides excellent heat dissipation and high efficiency.  Plus, our LEDs use the highest-quality lamp optics, which are precision manufactured for perfect directional light beam control, with no annoying "hot spots" or beam washout effect.  Achieving the ENERGY STAR solidifies TCP LEDs in the market.

"We are excited that our LED series has earned the ENERGY STAR," says Vice President of Marketing at TCP, Jim Crowcroft. "Our LED strategy has been to produce products that exceed the ENERGY STAR requirements and provide them at a value price.  Achieving ENERGY STAR for our LEDs is a great achievement."

TCP's LED lamps include PAR20, PAR30, PAR38 applications, and are all available in either narrow flood (25 degree) and flood (40 degree) beam spreads.  These lamps are perfect for a wide variety of general lighting applications. All of TCP's LEDs dim uniformly down to 0%, with no color-shifting, hum or annoying "flicker."  Also, the center-beam candlepower (CBCP) performance exceeds halogen and other LED products with similar beam angles, while providing very uniform beam patterns.  These LED lamps exceed the industry standards in lumen requirements for 90W PAR38, 75W PAR30, and 45W PAR20 applications.  A complete listing of TCP's ENERGY STAR qualified LED lamps can be found at
