2016 California Quality LED Lamp Specifications 3.0
Commissioner: Andrew McAllister
The California Energy Commission is opening a public process to update the voluntary quality specification for LED General Service lamps that use E26 ("Edison screw") and other types of ANSI-standard lamp sockets.
This specification is being developed in collaboration with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). CPUC Decision 12-05-015 directs the California investor-owned utilities (for their current energy efficiency portfolios) to only propose rebates for screw-based LEDs products that are consistent with the quality specification developed by the Energy Commission. See Section 10.4 of the CPUC decision.
This specification is being updated in order to continue driving the market towards higher quality products and prepare for the upcoming appliance efficiency regulations for state-regulated LED lamps. This specification will set a high performance standard that is intended to create a positive public perception of LED lamps, especially in residential applications.
