Modular CFL Downlights

Project Number PGE 0503 Organization PG&E End-use Lighting Sector Commercial, Residential Project Year(s) 2005 - 2006

Project Summary

This project is a demonstration of the energy-efficient CFL downlight fixture developed by the California Energy Commission’s Public Interest Energy Research (PIER) program (PIER 500-04-005, December 2003). The project is being conducted in partnership with homebuilders, to demonstrate the viability of using this emerging technology in the residential new construction sector, accelerating application of the technology during 2006. The technology is a packaged downlighting kit, complete with can, high performance lamp, and ballast. The unit includes unique thermal management for electronic ballasts, master/remote ballast geometry for reduced cost, high performance optics for reducing glare, and options for plug-and-play components to reduce installation time, site errors, and related costs. The fixture was jointly developed by the California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) and Lithonia Lighting, and is now used in the market to satisfy Title 24 compliance.
