Lutron Electronics Launches Dimmers with New Energy Awareness Feature

Coopersburg, PA (May 12, 2009) – Lighting control manufacturer Lutron Electronics helps homeowners visualize energy savings with the new eco-minderTM family of dimmers. The eco-minder family is an addition to Lutron’s energy saving line of dimmers.

Lutron’s innovative, new, eco-minder dimmers feature an LED display that provides the user with instant feedback when they are saving at least 15% energy, allowing them to see as they save. The eco-minder reminds users to dim their lights to reduce energy consumption, as well as allows them to show others how to conserve energy. Replace a standard switch with an eco-minder dimmer and save up to $30 per year*. Dim lights by 15% to extend bulb life by three times.
The eco-minder family includes two different styles of dimmers.

Maestro® eco-minder:
• The eco-minder LED lights change from red to green when the user is saving at least 15% energy
• Customizable, delayed, fade-to-off lets the user leave the room or get into bed before the lights go out
• Available now in white; available in July in ivory, almond and light almond at electrical distributors, lighting showrooms, online retailers and lutronstore.com.
• Suggested list price is $45.50

Meadowlark™ eco-minder:
• The eco-minder LED light changes from red to green when the user is saving at least 15% energy – the green light brightens to indicate additional energy savings
• New slide dimmer with Designer-style opening provides smooth dimming operation
• Rocker switch allows users to turn lights on to a set level
• Available in July in white, ivory, almond and light almond at electrical distributors, lighting showrooms and online at lutronstore.com.
