There once was a bill….

S.3059, the National Energy Efficiency Enhancement Act of 2010, better known in the lighting arena as the “Outdoor Lighting Bill”, was also introduced by Sen. Bingaman (D-NM) in March. This bill has 9 bi-partisan co-sponsors, but did not come out of committee.
Another bill introduced last year by Sen. Bingaman (D-NM), S.1462, the American Clean Energy Leadership Act (ACELA), has morphed into S.3925, A bill to amend the Energy Policy and Conservation Act to improve the energy efficiency of, and standards applicable to, certain appliances and equipment, and for other purposes. This new bill is a watered down version of ACELA, but in the process, it has absorbed S. 3059.

Some of the relevant lighting provisions in S.3925:
1. New incandescent reflector lamp standards
2. Requirements for GU-24 based lamps
3. Outdoor lighting provisions such as luminaire efficacies, the use of the BUG system, and the banning of mercury HID lamps as of 2016.
