California Plans More Exacting LED Retrofit Lamp Guidelines

California has a new guideline for LED retrofit lamps that is more stringent than Energy Star guidelines in some areas. The California Energy Commission (CEC) has published the voluntary guideline (Voluntary California Quality LED Lamp Specification) and lamp manufacturers will have to comply to have their solid-state lighting (SSL) retrofits be eligible for utility rebates. The CEC does not intend to supplant Energy Star but to simply add some requirements in certain areas. There are no concrete plans for the CPUC to begin enforcing the news specification. But the CEC document says that utilities will start requiring compliance one year after the specification has been adopted and that could mean early 2014.
