Cree to donate LED lighting to Habitat for Humanity

Cree Inc., Durham, N.C., has formed a partnership with Habitat for Humanity to put Cree downlights in the kitchens of all Habitat homes built in the U.S. over the next three years. The $1.5 million agreement gives more than 1,500 Habitat for Humanity affiliates across the U.S. access to the lighting package, which features Cree’s newest CR6 LED downlight. The CR6 is designed to last 50,000 hours, which is more than 22 years if the lights are used six hours a day, the company said.
