CEC Notice of Staff Workshop on Appliance Efficiency Pre-rulemaking for General Service Lamps (Expanded Scope)

California Energy CommissionAugust 3, 2018 — California Energy Commission staff will conduct a public workshop to seek comments from interested parties regarding staff analysis and the draft appliance efficiency proposal for general service lamps. This topic will be considered as amendments to the Appliance Efficiency Regulations (Title 20, California Code of Regulations, Sections 1601 through Section 1609). The public workshop will be held on:
Tuesday, August 28, 2018
10:00 a.m.
1516 Ninth Street
First Floor, Imbrecht Hearing Room
Sacramento, California
Wheelchair Accessible

Energy Commission staff released a draft staff report containing an analysis of general service lamps. This report presents the staff’s proposal to add and revise definitions related to general service lamps, define low-lumen lamps, and set minimum efficiency standards for low-lumen lamps. General service lamps are subject to existing state efficiency standards which require a minimum lamp efficacy of 45 lumens per watt for general service lamps manufactured on or after January 1, 2018, and offered for sale in California.
Staff proposes to amend the definition of general service lamp and to amend and add related definitions. These definitions will align with those established in two final rules published by the U.S. Department of Energy on January 19, 2017. Amending the definition of general service lamp would broaden the lamp types that are subject to the existing general service lamp standard, effectively expanding the scope of products for which low efficacy incandescent, including halogen, lamps could not be offered for sale in California.
