New CalEnergy Regs to Increase Costs, Lower Energy Efficiency for LED Bulbs

Today the California Energy Commission (CEC) unanimously approved the Title 20 Appliance Efficiency Regulations despite sound and substantive policy recommendations by industry, lighting experts, and consumer groups working to ensure sustained market adoption and energy efficiency gains. NEMA President & CEO Kevin J. Cosgriff: “CEC staff analysis acknowledges the Title 20 proposal enacted today will increase the price of LED lamps and that the proposed designs are less energy-efficient than today’s more popular LED options. Sadly today’s vote will negatively affect the growth of LED technology in California, the efficiency gains that accompany it, and the prices local citizens have to bear.” http://www.nema.org
