GE’s Lighting's Position Paper Supports California Lighting Efficiency Laws and Industry Transformation

Reportedly, California will become a test lab in 2011, to test nationwide consumers’ reaction to new federal lighting efficiency laws taking effect throughout the country on January 1, 2012.
 
Under Title 20, the Golden State's energy commission has the authority to regulate lighting products used by consumers and businesses.

Consumers in California will start to experience the phase out of the 100-watt incandescent light bulb in January, 2011. Californians will also deal with the phasing out of 75-watt, 60-watt and 40-watt incandescent bulbs on an accelerated schedule.
 
Based on the commission’s action, GE has announced the release of its Lighting's position paper to provide perspective on lighting legislation and the energy-efficient lighting technologies that are available to consumers and businesses now and in the years ahead.

Below are the main details:

  • A summary of the profound transformation of the global lighting industry that's underway and its effect on consumers, including U.S. laws taking effect starting in January 2012 through 2014. 
  • An assessment of lighting options available to consumers when 100-watt, 75-watt, 60-watt and 40-watt standard household incandescent light bulbs are no longer made.
  • Forecasts of the "solid-state age" on the horizon, a look at progress made with commercial LED solutions and the current "buyer-beware" nature of household LED lighting.
  • A review of how GE Lighting's focus on quality, reliability and business investment will benefit customers in upcoming years.
