GE Debuts World's Most-Efficient Integral 23-Watt Ceramic Metal Halide Lamp
GE's 23-watt ceramic metal halide lamp (1275 lumens) reduces the cost of lighting. It delivers $62.40 in energy savings compared with a 75-watt halogen lamp (1050 lumens), assuming $0.10/kWh over 12,000 hours. The new integral lamp also reduces maintenance costs with a long 12,000-hour rated life. Its ease of installation-made possible by a medium screw base and integrated ballast-will put store associates at ease when it comes time to replace a lamp.
"This new lamp provides the light quality retailers expect from standard PAR lamps, but in a much more energy-efficient package," says Linda Pastor, HID product manager - North America, GE Appliances & Lighting. "It's even more efficient than other integral ceramic metal halide offerings."
The lamp significantly reduces watts-per-square foot to help meet stringent codes and regulations and is an effective tool for companies wanting to earn LEED points. It's available as a 10-degree spot, 25-degree flood and 36-degree wide flood with a warm, white 3000K color temperature.
