ENERGY STAR Residential Lighting Program, Report No. 1

This report presents the first market progress evaluation report (MPER) of the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance’s (the Alliance’s) ENERGY STAR Residential Lighting Program (Lighting Program).  The Lighting Program promotes residential lighting products that meet ENERGY STAR technical lighting specifications and are labeled with the ENERGY STAR logo.  The focus of the initial stages of the program has been on compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs).  As most readers will be aware, CFLs were intricately connected to the Spring 2001 West Coast energy crisis, resulting in a radically altered marketplace and, ultimately, in regional sales twenty times greater than Alliance pre-program planning estimates.
