What the DOE Legislation Signals
To dive a bit deeper into the DOE’s legislation, GSLs are defined as having the following:
- An ANSI screw or pin base lamp
- Lumens between 310-3300
- The ability to operate at a voltage at or between 12V, 24V, 100V-130V, 220V-240V and 277V
This legislation is tremendous shift in the industry, but making the switch to LED is critical for a sustainable future. And the new generation of LED is not just energy efficient but connected, laying the groundwork for your digital, smart facility goals. While most American consumers are aware of the benefits of LED, in 2020, around 30% of consumers still bought incandescent lighting.
As we continue to embrace the power of LED illumination, the benefits of these lights remain undeniable: LED lights use far less energy and can lower your carbon footprint, have a lifespan of 11,000 to 40,000 hours, lasting up to 25 times longer than incandescent or halogen bulbs, use less heat, and are high-quality.
Because this legislation will cause a tremendous shift in the industry, we have been working to understand what you need to choose LED lighting confidently. We have created a plethora of resources and tools to ease the transition to LED lighting. Our newest resource is our easy-to-use LED Lamp Cross Reference tool.
