ALA Seeks to End Bulb-in-the-Box in CA

Tuesday, September 29, 2020/Categories: News, Government Engagement

Over ten years ago, the California Energy Commission (CEC) implemented a new requirement that all portable luminaires be packaged with a qualifying lamp. In the years since, California has advanced lamp efficiency requirements, creating a retail environment were only high-efficacy lamps are available to consumers, thus making the lamp requirement for portable luminaires obsolete. To that end, ALA sent a letter to CEC asking for a review of the current requirement and ultimately the elimination of the lamp requirement. ALA looks forward to engaging with the CEC on this matter. Read the letter sent to the CEC.
