DOE Releases Final Ruling for Fluorescent Lamps

The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Department of Energy, has released a final determination on standards for general service fluorescent lamps.

The Energy Policy and Conservation Act, as amended (EPCA), prescribes energy conservation standards for various consumer products and certain commercial and industrial equipment, including general service fluorescent lamps (GSFLs). EPCA also requires the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to periodically determine whether more-stringent, amended standards would be technologically feasible and economically justified, and would result in significant energy savings. In this final determination, DOE has determined that energy conservation standards for GSFLs do not need to be amended.

The effective date of this final determination is March 15, 2023.
