- New Philips LED A-class bulbs consume 60% less energy compared to standard Philips LED bulbs and have a longer lifespan
- Provides consumers with a smart investment for the planet and their purse
- Philips LED’s new and improved regular A-shape bulbs will be available starting September 1, 2021
Eindhoven, the Netherlands – Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, introduces the first Philips LED A-class bulbs that meet the more stringent EU Ecodesign and Energy labeling regulations that come into effect on September 1, 2021. The new Philips LED bulbs with a longer lifespan provide consumers with a smart investment for both the planet as their purse. The more sustainable LED bulbs, available in 40W and 60W equivalents, will hit the shelves on September 1, 2021.
For an A-class rating under the new regulations, lighting products have to reach an energy efficiency of 210lm/W. Signify has developed and designed four regular A-shape light bulbs that meet these criteria, meaning they consume 60% less power to achieve the same light output and quality as standard Philips LED bulbs. Thanks to this technological breakthrough, the new products are the first in a range of new Philips LED A-class bulbs meeting the highest level in the new EU energy labeling legislations.
The bulb that can last half a century
The new Philips LED A-class bulbs - which meet the high-quality Philips EyeComfort1 criteria - are the brand’s most energy-efficient lamps in this shape yet. Consumers can benefit from a 3.5 times longer life span than Philips LED’s regular A-shape equivalents as the new bulbs are able to shine light for approximately 50.000 hours. This translates into an average lifetime of 50 years2 , which provides consumers with a smart investment in the long run, for both the planet as their purse.
