Lighting Conversions, Retrofits, and Recycling



In 2009 the United States Department of Energy issued efficacy standards for general service fluorescent lamps that implement new lumens per watt regulations for linear and U-bend types. The new standards took effect on July 14, 2012 resulting in elimination of many inefficient 4-foot T12 and 2-foot T12 U-bend lamps, most 8-foot T12 lamps and some 4-foot T8 lamps.

Do you have an installed base of T12 and old or obsolete T8 lamps? Oh no! Now what!?!



Don't worry. You have options with ES&E including:

  • Direct replacement lamps - ES&E stocks certain T12 lamps as a direct replacement for your old lamps.
  • Retrofit kits - Replace the lamp ballast while leaving the fixture intact saving time and labor.
  • Full replacement fixtures - Replace the entire fixture with the latest in lamp technology
  • ES&E Turnkey Solution - Free walkthrough/audit, custom quote, worry-free rebate process, and lamp disposal

Many of these programs are available for a limited time.
