Hi All -- has anyone hardwired this lights? If so, are instructions included in the package? Anything special to do?

Also are they dimmable?

The price and size is perfect for my new kitchen. Thanks all.

I looked at those lights and liked them, but they were waaaay too expensive for me. Don't know if they're dimmable, but before you purchase you might want to check out these - I just got mine yesterday so not finished installing.

The Lowe's Portfolio lights are significantly CHEAPER than the Environmental Lights setup. That's one of the reasons I was interested in them.

@Mountaineergirl -- Have you installed yours yet? I noticed you've posted on several threads about the lights, but wondering if you've got them installed yet. Any pictures/details?


RE: Lowe's Portfolio 27' LED Under Cabinet Strips

No we aren't finished installing yet. We have all the lights mounted, but needed some other interconnect items and had to place another order. They are on the way and hopefully will be here by Friday. Then its just a matter of connecting them up. (holes already drilled also) I do have one section of 30" lights (a 24" and 6" joined together) to the left of my range, but that's just about a 1/10 of the project. I am loving that part so far LOL! play with it all the time, dimming etc I leave it on full during the day and dim it at night. Its a nice white light, and makes my light over the range look wimpy.

I guess we're not looking at the same lights at Lowe's. What I saw was like $60 for an 18" bar, and I'm paying $40 for 24" bars. BUT,this price is not their advertised price. They did discount them to match the price on another website.

sorry to hi-jack this thread but curious ZacsDaddy--did you see the lights in the lowes store or do you special order it?

RE: Lowe's Portfolio 27' LED Under Cabinet Strips

They are in the stores ...

zacsDaddy - I posted my UCL in another thread, just in case you didn't see.

So -- In the end, I ended up ordering from Environmental Lights as well. I found on another forum a number of people who loved their Lowe's lights, but said they were not dimmable. Environmental was more expensive, but are dimmable (and able to fit exactly the space I needed).
