LED Lighting

CollegeBuys  /  For Colleges  /  Our Partners  /  LED Lighting

Community College Focused

The Foundation’s LED Luminaries contracts were secured with the specific product and service needs of the California’s 116 Community Colleges in mind. A committee of facilities representatives from the Community Colleges was involved throughout the RFP and evaluation process. As of January 2016, CollegeBuys is able to adopt CSU and UC agreements, making them available systemwide, leading to expanded contract offerings and best value procurement options.

A Wide Breadth of Products and Services Available

Through partnerships with GonLED, WESCO, All-Phase, and Parker Lighting districts can secure a wide range of highperforming lighting products from over 70 manufacturers, allowing flexibility to procure products needed for specific lighting efficiency projects. Services include providing samples and cut sheets upon request, post-implementation training, and providing data to support district compliance with Proposition 39 and associated rebate incentives. 

Total Cost of Ownership

Contracts emphasize the total cost of ownership approach, encompassing the needs of the Community Colleges prior to and following purchase. The contracts allow direct procurement of materials without any general condition markup by a contractor, and without the expense and time of going to bid. All products procured include freight costs and vendors will manage all freight claims. Certain products also qualify for the Buy America program, which allows districts to support workplace development in the United States.

Compliance with California Public Contract Code and Energy Efficiency Standards

All contracts adhere to California Public Contract Code requirements. Additionally, our partners GonLED, WESCO, All-Phase, and Parker Lighting provide products that are compliant with Proposition 39, which maximizes tax dollars. Our partners are also required to offer products that comply with the Energy Efficiency Standards outlined in Title 24, Part 6 of the California Energy Code, allowing districts to reduce energy costs.

All-Phase Electric Supply Co. is one of the nation's largest and most reliable purveyors of
electrical goods since 1957. Our foundational principles are service, integrity, and reliability.
Our commitment to environmental responsibility goes beyond merely selling energy efficient lamps, light fixtures and power-saving retrofit kits. We bring the practice of sustainability home. This very website, for example, is hosted on a server that uses less than two-thirds of the power of a standard server. Our Host has also made a bold move to support renewable energy by purchasing certified Renewable Energy Credits amounting to 130% of their actual power usage. The cost is a little higher, but we think it's worth it to ensure that our site is not just Carbon Neutral, but actually Carbon Negative, supporting the growth and expansion of renewable sustainable energy nationwide. 

Products and Services

  • Energy efficient lamps, light fixtures and power-saving retrofit kits
  • Complete electrical installation materials. ie: switchgear, pipe and wire, electrical fittings, electrical boxes and covers
  • Industrial control. ie: motor controls devices, gutters and enclosures, cable tray, signaling devices and safety solutions
  • Ongoing training for all of the above products and more hosted at our facilities
