CEC New Lighting Standards Estimated to Save $4 Billion in Energy Costs


As of Wednesday 1/27, the CEC has adopted new lighting standards for small diameter directional lamps – often used in home track lighting. Per the CEC’s blog:

“The adopted standards will save consumers money in electricity and bulb replacement costs. For a $4 investment in the more efficient small-diameter directional lamps, the Energy Commission estimates consumers will save nearly $250 in reduced energy and bulb replacement costs when averaged over 11 years. The lifetime savings for general purpose LEDs range from $4.50 to $12 and will likely grow as purchase prices continue to decline.”
