Federal standards, utility programs, and U.S. Department of Energy have all contributed to a swiftly evolving lighting landscape. Traditional incandescent bulbs are being phased out, and CFLs and LEDs are used in more applications. Older lighting programs that promoted only CFLs were one of, if not the, least expensive utility efficiency programs, but these are becoming outdated with changes to technology and new lighting efficiency standards. Going forward, modern lighting programs must adapt to stay relevant and maximize savings. This article explains the state of the lighting market and what co-ops can do to continue to promote lighting savings.
