DOE Rulemaking Could Dash California Title 20 Sting

The US Department of Energy (DOE) is purportedly readying regulations on general service lamps, including both LED-based products and compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) that would in part negate the widely-criticized California Title 20 rulemaking. Evidently, the DOE policy will require a minimum CRI of 80 for all general-service lamps whereas the California Energy Commission (CEC) has effectively mandated a CRI of 90, and the higher CRI could equate to higher-cost lamps for consumers and slightly greater energy usage. It appears that the federal policy will rule with solid-state lighting (SSL) products, at least in terms of the ubiquitous A-lamp.
