How utilities can navigate the new lighting standards

Register to download

In 2023, the federal government will phase in full enforcement of the new 45 lumens per watt lighting efficiency standard, leading manufacturers and retailers to sweep incandescent and halogen bulbs from their product lines and shelves in favor of high-efficiency LEDs.

The end of lighting-driven residential efficiency programs is an opportunity for utilities to reimagine demand-side management programs to address the pressing priorities of the future: electrification, decarbonization, resilience, and energy equity in a climate of rapid load growth.
