This is no April Fools!
According to the California Energy Efficiency Standards Code, Title 24, Part 6, LED lights are now the standard. Scouts Honor!
For most, this means drastic reductions to available rebates and incentives from your utility provider for the purchase and installation of LED lighting.
Don’t let that discourage you from doing lighting projects. Look on the bright side. The California Energy Efficiency Standards Code would not have been able to make LEDs the standard if there haven’t already been drastic changes in the market making LEDs affordable.
We know what you’re thinking, LEDs are more affordable but what if I need to replace dozens or hundreds of them? That is still a very costly project. Consider the various financing vehicles out there to assist with energy efficiency projects:
