EIR - Draft EIR
Document Description
The Energy Commission intends to accelerate the effective date of federal Tier I and Tier II lighting efficiency standards. The proposed lighting standard for the federal Tier I standards would become effective beginning in 2011 and would require general service incandescent lamps to use 30 percent less energy than current general service lamps. The proposed lighting standard for the federal Tier II standards would become effective in 2018 in California and would require general service lamps to use 60 percent less energy than current general service lamps. The project also includes new standards to increase the efficiency for portable lighting fixtures.
