Energy_efficient_lighting_thumbnail

The lighting industry has been transformed by compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) and light-emitting diode (LED) technologies because of their high performance and energy efficiency. These energy efficient bulbs require substantially less energy to operate and last much longer than traditional incandescent bulbs. They also provide other immediate, long-lasting benefits to consumers, including lower costs to replace bulbs, reduced operating expenses and time saved swapping out bulbs in those hard to reach fixtures. For these reasons, the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code with Georgia State Supplements and Amendments requires that at least 50 percent of the permanently installed lighting fixtures in new homes contain energy efficient bulbs.  This online module provides code officials and construction professionals with a brief overview of the code requirements and their benefits. It also lays out key items to observe when inspecting residential lighting fixtures for compliance with the energy efficient lighting requirements of the Georgia Code. This course has been approved for 0.1 CEU by the International Code Council (ICC). Read More
