The State of the Lighting Industry
We didn’t do a great job ensuring customers received a quality CFL product when we started incentivizing CFLs and many customers had a less than optimal first experience. When LEDs were ready to move into the mainstream, Northwest utilities agreed on a way to qualify new products quickly while still ensuring that customers were able to receive a quality product, and the LDL list was born. Since then, codes and standards have changed how utilities think about linear fluorescent baselines, ENERGY STAR® has adjusted their criteria for LEDs, and manufacturers now want to put a non-qualifying LED lamp on the market that will compete with the price of the incentivized products we invest in. Where is this all going and what is next? With a need for cost-effective energy savings and changing baselines, will lighting be there for us to bring the cost of our efficiency portfolio down?
