NEW YORK - Vu1 Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: VUOC), a developer and manufacturer of mercury-free, energy-efficient, general illumination lighting technology, today announced that it has received 57 individual preliminary orders for its unique ESL R30 light bulbs in the first 100 hours since the December 17th launch of direct-order functionality on its website. The orders range in size from eight to 50 bulbs and comprise individual consumers and a number of small to medium-sized businesses and organizations.
"We are pleased but unsurprised by this early consumer response to Vu1's unique lighting technology," commented Philip Styles, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Having now shipped the company's first preliminary commercial order to a leading northwest electrical distributor, Vu1's manufacturing team is focused on fulfilling these initial consumer orders, so our customers can experience the benefits of our ESL lighting technology in the New Year."
US consumers can purchase the Company's R30 Electron Stimulated Luminescence(TM) (ESL) energy-efficient reflector light bulbs, directly from Vu1 through its website at www.vu1.com.
Vu1's R30 ESL(TM) bulb is a direct replacement for the 65W incandescent flood bulb. It is virtually indistinguishable from the traditional incandescent lamp it replaces and, unlike CFLs, is mercury-free. The Company's ESL Lighting Technology uses accelerated electrons to stimulate phosphor to create light, making the surface of the bulb "glow," providing natural light quality, energy efficiency and a long bulb life of 10,000 hours.
According to recent industry reports, the U.S. market comprises 800 million recessed can lights with over 140 million bulbs sold per year. To accelerate the introduction and adoption of Vu1's products into the hardware/home improvement, and club/mass market retail channels, the Company has engaged Integrated Sales Solutions (ISS), LLC, a specialist sales and marketing consulting business co-founded by Bill Hamlin, a former The Home Depot (HD) senior executive and Vu1 Board member.
