Earth Day is the official launch of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) 2011 Change the World, Start with ENERGY STAR campaign, educating consumers about what they can do to save energy and help protect the climate.
One of our newest stock products fits the bill:
Philips EnduraLED 12.5W has met or exceeded the quality and energy efficiency requirements for a 60W LED equivalent set forth by ENERGY STAR, proving that it is a highly-efficient, cost-effective lighting option for professional end users. The lamp lasts 25 times longer and uses 80% less energy than the 60W incandescent it was designed to replace.
Products that earn the ENERGY STAR label by meeting the quality energy efficiency requirements set forth by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are often eligible for utility rebate programs which lower the cost of the product, making it easier for endusers to begin saving energy. To earn an ENERGY STAR label, a 60W LED equivalent must have a minimum light output of 800 lumen, a color temperature of 2700K (for soft-white light), Color Rendering of 80, and a minimum 3 year warranty, among other specifications. The Philips EnduraLED meets or exceeds these specifications with 806 lumens, 2700K, a CRI of 80 and a 6 year warranty.
Philips was also the first – and only – company to have submitted an A19 replacement lamp for the U.S. Department of Energy's L Prize contest, which calls for an LED equivalent to the 60W lamp that can produce 900 lumens using less than 10 watts of electricity. The L Prize is the first government-sponsored competition to encourage innovation in the lighting industry. Since the L Prize submission in the fall of 2009, the Philips lamp has been undergoing field, lab and lifetime testing with the DOE.
