Life Cycle Cost Savings

Under GSA's Proving Ground, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) evaluated an LED replacement lamp that uses the same four-pin socket and electronic ballast as an incumbent CFL. Results showed energy savings between 40-50%, matching light levels and quality and payback under 3 years at the national average utility rate.
