Eaton’s Innovative Solutions Help Noted Actor and Environmentalist Ed Begley, Jr. Attain LEED Platinum Certification

PEACHTREE CITY, Ga.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Power management company Eaton today announced that the company’s
lighting, residential and wiring devices solutions have helped actor and
environmentalist Ed Begley, Jr. build one of North America’s greenest,
most sustainable homes. The home, completed in late 2016, received a
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum
certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.

“Very few people go for the LEED Platinum certification in residential
construction,” said Begley. “We were able to reach the Platinum level
with the help of Eaton and all of the wonderful and efficient products
they brought to the table.”

Eaton will be highlighting the completed home from January 10 to 12
during the 2017 National Association of Home Builders (NAHB)
International Builders’ Show (IBS) in Orlando, Florida. The Eaton booth,
W3490, will showcase a series of videos demonstrating the products and
services that help improve the efficiency, safety and reliability of the
home, including Halo H4 light-emitting diode (LED) lighting products,
arc fault/ground fault circuit interrupters, loadcenters and surge
protection devices.

“Homeowners are increasingly looking for the innovative solutions Mr.
Begley used in his home – energy-efficient products that do not
sacrifice safety or reliability,” said Joanne Edwards, senior vice
president, Residential and Wiring Devices Division, Eaton. “This project
demonstrates that safe, reliable residential homes can be built to
maximize efficiency with Eaton’s products.”
