EPA updates ENERGY STAR Standards for Lighting

 
ENERGY-STAR-LIGHTING

The EPA has announced updated standards for lighting and light fixtures to qualify for the ENERGY STAR label.  The new standards will go into effect October 1, 2011, and will require ENERGY STAR label light fixtures to increase efficiency 30% above currently qualified fluorescent based fixtures.

The standards are set to be raised yet again in 2013, with performance requirements rising to 40% efficiency over currently qualified models.

A range of new technology options will be available under the new ENERGY STAR standards including fluorescent and LED lighting. 

 In order to earn the ENERGY STAR label under the new requirements, product performance must be certified by an EPA-recognized third-party, based on testing in an EPA-recognized laboratory.  In addition, manufacturers of the products must participate in verification testing programs run by recognized certification bodies.

Light fixtures that earn the ENERGY STAR save consumers money and reduce costs and labor associated with bulb replacement.  ENERGY STAR qualified fixtures last at least 10 times longer than standard light bulbs and meet strict performance requirements.
