Got this email today- looks pretty neat


Philips Lighting, parent company of Advance ballast, has recently introduced the
"Evo Kit". This is an LED retro fit kit for 2'x 2' and 2' x 4' florescent
fixtures. Attached is a specification sheet and below is a link to an
installation video. This can be a great profit generator for you! Small or
large jobs can benefit.

1) Approximately 50% energy reduction (compared with a T8 lamp)
2) Estimated life of 70,000 hours
3) 5 year warranty
4) Maintenance free
5) Utility rebates may be available, example $40 / fixture at Duke Energy
6) 5 - 10 minutes / fixture to install
7) Much improved light distribution, reduced "cave" (shadows) effects.
8) More modern appearance
9) Dimmable

Thanks Dennis,

I use a company in Red Deer, Alberta for most (95%) of my LED products and they are reasonably priced. He doesn't do a lot with full retrofit kits for troffers though. I'm going to check these guys out.



PS....If anybody wants the Red Deer companies name shoot me a PM. His pricing is pretty good and his products are very good.

Dennis are you really getting $40 a fixture rebate from Duke? PWC and Lumbee River dont have any rebate programs at this time. I know Duke took over Progress Energy last year, but so far I haven't been able to locate their number for the spring Lake/ Hartnett county office. I need to find out whats the deal here.

Actually, PWC is doing rebates, but only for LED (no T-8 or 5) and the job needs to have at least 50 fixtures or more. Basically it a case by case only.

I just got an email on this and have never used them. I am getting pricing on it also. I assume Duke will give the rebate.

Here is the fellow I got it from

Call Fox-Rowden-McBrayer, Inc. (FRM) for more information!

Two kwik things Dennis. It does not show the lumen output comparison anywhere that I can see.
I also do not believe the 5 to 10 minute number.
Other wise I kinda like it.

Looks decent, though I do not care for the 'abandon in place' procedure for the balast. Not a habit I want to learn, or teach. Anyone used it yet?

Neato, but...

where is this worth it? I spent the other day going through a 30 year old, 5 story office building, replacing the ballast, (t12 to t8), of every fixture that needed a ballast. Eventually, the whole place will be switched over. I have a reasonable expectation that t8 electronic ballasts will be available for some time to come, at least until they are all switched out. LED solutions are spraying out on the market like crazy, and what was on the shelf last week, is often gone by next........
