We are excited to announce that Tom Farin, our founder and president, has just been elected to the Board of Managers for the Raleigh section of the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA).  Tom has been a member of IESNA since 1993 and was involved in the Pittsburgh section as an officer and board member before he moved to North Carolina.

The IESNA is an organization of lighting industry professionals with a mission “to advance knowledge and to disseminate information for the improvement of the lighted environment to the benefit of society”.  Tom was selected from a group of nominees slated for the position and he will serve as a board member for at least a year.

Pegasus Lighting has been a Sustaining Member of the IESNA since February of this year.  By becoming a Sustaining Member, we now help further lighting research, education projects, and other endeavors designed to communicate all aspects of good lighting practices to lighting professionals and consumers.

We couldn’t help but share the good news!

We said that the winners would be announced April 2, 2010. So, without further ado, allow me to announce our contest winners:

kitchen-backsplash-diy-projectThis post is for all of you “weekend warriors” out there that are working hard to finish up those summer projects. Yesterday I received a phone call from one of our manufacturers with a request. They wanted to offer a special Labor Day promotion on their wireless LED battery-operated lights; a $3 instant manufacturer rebate. Nothing wrong with that; so I said, “Absolutely!”

Starting today, and continuing through this coming Labor Day, Monday, September 7, six of some of our most popular LED battery-operated light fixtures have been reduced in price by $3. Since this is an instant manufacturer rebate, there is nothing that you, the customer, have to do to receive this rebate. The special Labor Day price, including your instant rebate, will automatically be applied when the product is placed in our online shopping cart.

So, go ahead, and take some of the “labor” out of your summer projects with LED lighting that:

  • Includes a bright white LED
  • Mounts anywhere
  • Lights up automatically when motion is detected
  • Turns on only in darkness
  • Automatically shuts off after 30 seconds
  • Can be used indoors or outdoors
  • Provides easy safety and security lighting
  • And, may even be remote-controlled.

The Labor Day instant manufacturer rebate applies to the following products:

All of us at Pegasus Associates Lighting hope you had a great summer and that you have a wonderful Labor Day weekend.
