Responsible Purchasing Guide: Fluorescent Lighting Launched

November 06, 2007


The Responsible Purchasing Guide: Fluorescent Lighting covers fluorescent lamps, including compact fluorescent bulbs, ballasts and tubes and outlines best practices for a responsible lighting system. It is available online and as a printable pdf. The 46 page printable version is free for RPN members, and $50 non-members.

Both versions include a toolbox of impact calculators, a step-by-step CFL buying guide, an explanation of LEED as related to lighting and sample policies, contract language, and lighting equipment audit form. In addition, the online Fluorescent Lighting Guide has a searchable database of ENERGY STAR Qualified CFLs and downloadable copies of Fluorescent Lighting Webcast presentations.

Start talking about fluorescent lighting on the our discussion forum, where questions from the Fluorescent Lighting Webcast are posted.
