Legislation Update

TL741On July 15 of this year the Department of Energy (DOE) will ban the production of the current 700 series T8 lamp. This means that we will no longer be able to manufacture the most common lamp that we sell. Fear not, Philips has developed a new design that will be compliant with the July legislation codes. These new and improved compliant lamps will maintain the 700 Series T8 lamp name but will contain “HL” in the ordering code. “HL” signifies the high lumens that will meet the required DOE efficiency requirements. Of course the new lamps will cost a little bit more than the non-complaint lamps.

Next Generation 75 and 100 Watt Equivalent LEDs Now Energy Star

15 Watt A21 LEDThe Philips 15-watt and 19-watt A21 are second generation bulbs that offer the same quality white light as the rest of the Philips retrofit bulb lines, while also gaining two watts in efficiency over their first generation predecessors. And now, they are ENERGY STAR certified! In addition to offering familiar, soft white light, these Philips bulbs fit into existing fixtures and work with standard dimmers.

Philips estimates that about 90 million 75-watt incandescent light bulbs are sold annually, while the 100-watt incandescent accounts for nearly 25 percent of the 4.4 billion sockets found in the U.S. Switching to these LED replacements has the potential to reduce energy use by over 86 million megawatts of electricity per year with potential cost savings of more than $8.5 billion.  According to Philips estimates, it could also eliminate 63 million metric tons of carbon emissions annually, or the equivalent of removing nearly 13 million cars from the road.
