L Prize™ Competition Adds Nine New Partners from Coast to Coast (PDF) - The following energy efficiency organizations and utilities each signed a Memorandum of Understanding with DOE: DTE Energy, Sierra Pacific Power (now doing businesses as NV Energy), Eugene Water and Electric Board, Seattle City Light, Energy Trust of Oregon, Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance, NSTAR Electric, Commonwealth Edison Company, and Cape Light Compact. The L Prize is the first government-sponsored technology competition designed to spur lighting manufacturers to develop high quality, high efficiency solid-state lighting (LED) products to replace the common light bulb. The L Prize competition aims to radically accelerate America’s shift from inefficient, dated lighting products to innovative, high-performance products. Sixteen partners from coast to coast are now on board to bring utility programs and other incentives for winning L Prize products.
