Samsung LED Received ENERGY STAR Qualification for MR16 LED lamp

Oct 18, 2011 Samsung LED has announced in the official press release that it has received ENERGY STAR(R) initial qualification on their 35W equivalent MR16 LED lamp, officially making it the industry's brightest ENERGY STAR qualified MR16 LED lamp in the market to date.

The Samsung LED MR16 had to meet strict energy efficiency guidelines and pass rigorous reliability testing set forth by ENERGY STAR to meet the qualification requirements. LED Lamps that qualify for the ENERGY STAR mark are typically eligible for utility rebates which help reduce the overall cost of the product, helping accelerate adoption of LED lighting technology. Samsung LED's ENERGY STAR qualified MR16 is 20% brighter than any other qualified MR16 and boasts an efficacy of 60 lm/W while consuming 29 watts less per lamp than the 35W halogen it's intended to replace.

In addition to this MR16, Samsung LED expects initial ENERGY STAR qualification on its PAR38, PAR30 and PAR20 LED lamps by the end of November, 2011. Samsung LED previously announced full product availability of its A19, MR16, PAR and L-Tube (fluorescent tube replacement) LED lamp line and will be expanding its current lineup through the end of 2011 and into 2012.
