10W A19 Lamps Now California Energy Commission Title 20 Compliant


June 7, 2021 - Waveform Lighting is excited to announce availability of our A19 10W LED lamp lineup for California customers. The bulbs listed below are now compliant to the California Energy Commissions Title 20 regulations and can now be shipped to our customers located in the state of California.

The color temperature specifications, along with their updated part numbers are also listed under each product family.

 

Frequently Asked Questions


Why are you updating part numbers?

We needed to make some changes to the power electronics inside the bulb to meet the California Energy Commission's requirement for appliances to have a power factor higher than 0.7. The part number designation, printed on the packaging and lamp body, allows us to distinguish our prior lamps with a lower power factor, and those with the updated electronics for a higher power factor. See here for an in-depth explanation.

Is there a difference in the lamps' performance?

From the user's perspective, no difference in the light output, efficiency, brightness, color or flicker will be present. The California Energy Commission's power factor requirement was put in place only to improve the efficiency and reliability of power generation equipment at the power plant, and does not affect the performance of the light bulb itself.

I am not based in California. Does this update affect me?

If you are not based in California, these updates do not affect you. We plan to continue shipping non-CA compliant bulbs from our remaining inventory to our non-CA customers. Both types of bulbs will exhibit the same performance (see prior FAQ) in terms of light output, efficiency, brightness, color and flicker. If there is any confusion regarding part numbers, please see the list above for the mapping of (old -> new) part numbers.
