On February 19th Arizona Association of Community Managers held their 13th Annual HOPE Grant Golf Tournament at Starfire Golf Club. ‘HOPE’ (Homeowners Outreach Program Enterprise) is a grant created by AACM members and affiliate partners as a means to establish an outreach to qualified homeowners that need financial support and/or property maintenance assistance. Qualified homeowners submit their applications to their homeowner board of directors, who will then apply for the AACM ‘HOPE’ Grant.

As a member of the AACM, ILD was able to sponsor King Hole 4, a par 3 hole. This year we held a contest for whoever could make it on the green (no mulligans!) won a custom Titleist Pro V1 that has ILD’s logo. Also, by trading business cards, golfers were entered to win a $200 service call! Being able to participate in this event not only allowed ILD to get involved with a great cause but also gives us the opportunity to inform many of the participants about lighting systems, LED lighting and the benefits that home owners and businesses can derive from our services.
Thanks AACM! We look forward to seeing you next year!
Arizona’s monsoon season is here! This season can range from June 16th – September 13th with large storms usually starting mid-July. During Monsoon Season you can almost guarantee a power outage, whether it’s from lighting or a dust storm. Here are some tips from www.monsoonsafety.org and SRP® to help get you through a storm and back on track. Electricity from lightning can travel through the wires in your home and damage important home office equipment. If you experience a complete or partial power outage during a monsoon, take the following steps
- During a storm it is best to turn off and even unplug all major appliances, including your computer, TV, phones, and other media equipment. This will help restore power more quickly while protecting your equipment from voltage fluctuations and circuit overloads when power returns.
- Turn off the A/C and all lights except one to indicate when the power has been restored. When power is restored, wait a few minutes before turning on lights and appliances — turn them on one at a time.
- Make sure your office equipment is properly grounded. Power disturbances can affect computers and other microprocessor-based equipment that depend on a constant voltage supply. An improper ground can cause your equipment to malfunction or fail.
- Reset circuit breakers to see if the problem is a short-circuit in your home’s electrical system. If other homes in your neighborhood are dark, the problem is likely a power outage. Check for “blown” fuses or make sure your circuit breakers are in the “on” position. Also check the main breaker; turn off and then turn on to reset the main breaker.
If you find yourself uncomfortable with step 4 and/or are unsure of what to do in any electrical situation always CALL A PROFESSIONAL.
Innovative Lighting & Electric is offering special pricing for electrical issues due to storms until the end of September!

LEDs are fairly new to the market and will probably take some time to dominate the lighting industry, but here is some quick information about LEDs.
Light–Emitting Diodes are semiconductor devices that produce visible light when an electrical current is passed through them. LEDs are “directional” light sources which means they emit light in a specific direction, unlike incandescent and compact fluorescent bulbs which emit light and heat in all directions. The lifespan of an LED surpasses the short life of an incandescent bulb by thousands of hours, because they don’t have a filament that will burn out. Common LED colors are red, green, and blue, but there is actually no such thing as a “white” LED. To achieve the kind of white “warm” light we use for lighting our homes and offices, different color LEDs are mixed with a phosphor material that converts the color of the light. LED lighting technology is growing immensely day by day and can only enhance the atmosphere of desired lighting while minimizing your electric bill.
Any bulb you buy with an label comes with a 3-year warranty and quality assurance. To browse some of our products Click Here.
