Undercabinet lighting again - can they be prewired by builder?

Posted by snowang (My Page) on

I can never seem to learn enough about undercabinet lights. After reading many threads, I still have questions.

Our builder's standard is $217 for each Seagull Lighting Holagen under cabinet light they put in. From what I've read on this forum, I should stay away from holagen because of the heat issue. My builder can upgrade to Xenon but they'll have to stick to Seagull. And it'll probably cost a lot more. I've heard good things about Juno and Pegasus Xenon lights. I am wondering if this is something I can ask the builder to prewire (for $100 each maybe), and purchase and put in the lights on my own later. I seem to recall that these Xenon lights need transformers that need to be hidden. Does that mean that prewire isn't an option at all? Many thanks!

They can prewire for them.
These Xenon undercabinet lights are ready to connect to standard power without any transformer.

Thanks, housavvy! What if I am getting this particular Juno model:

It says Integral 12-volt electronic transformer. That means it's hidden in the light fixture itself so no separate installation of the transformer?
