Effective July 14, 2012, new DOE regulations increased the minimum efficiency requirements effectively eliminating many popular lamps including the 75 Watt and 90 Watt Flood Lamps. Available stock at the electrical suppliers is quickly drying up, so here are two alternatives which Riverside can supply to retrofit your can lights for energy and maintenance savings.

Compact fluorescent lamps have a higher output per watt (more light) and since they use less energy (wattage) they provide an energy savings as well as warranty replacement. They are installed at a higher upfront cost, but can provide energy and material savings throughout their longer life.
