OKT Lighting - LED Lighting Trends in California
to all, California is the largest state among the United States both in finance
and technology. In LED Lighting business, it has been leading this industry by
setting up new standards from time to time.
24 is the new energy compliance I heard in 2013, when I firstly noticed E26
should not be allowed to use and residential LED lightings ought to be 90 CRI
above. And then more and more customers in California are asking for higher CRI
products in last two years. Now some other part of the United States are
following this code. Some reason is because distributors don’t want to stock
two categories of the same product in CRI 80 and CRI 90. In
2015, we - OKT Lighting have been receiving from our customers from California
that Title 24 are expanding their requirements to other aspects. Some said it
is a request to install a sensor with the lights, so they can be dimmed down or
up according to foot candle on the desk and presence of human. Also some
commended that higher lumen efficiency and dimming are also new codes for T8 LED
tubes for new construction.
There is no complete and full Title 24 codes yet, specialists are adding or modifying terms step by step. But I am sure the new compliance will push people to make and use more intelligent LED lightings as well as more efficiency ones.
