updated 11:40 a.m. CST--GE spokesman called to emphasize that SOME fixtures are being discontinued.
EdisonReport can confirm GE has issued an internal memo announcing the discontinuation of SOME HID, Incandescent, Fluorescent & Induction Luminaires due to falling demand for traditional lighting products and the accelerated adoption of solid state lighting.
GE Lighting will no longer be creating new, custom non-LED luminaire configurations. These undocumented catalog numbers will no longer be allowed on quotes or orders.
GE Lighting continues to focus on LED and intelligent lighting technologies, investing in the future of advanced lighting controls and energy efficient LED luminaries.
