Mercury Vapor banned in 2008

S.10  Energy Policy Act of 2005

As ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources on May 26, 2005

SUMMARY:

 "The legislation would authorize funding for several programs aimed at energy production, conservation, and research and development. It would authorize the use of energy savings performance contracts (ESPCs), make several changes to the regulatory framework governing the nation's electricity system, and establish a mandate for the use of renewable fuels."

The importance of providing customer solutions to the ever changing landscape in the outdoor lighting space. Recent changes to legislation, known as EPAct 2005, call for the elimination of manufacturing, marketing, and importation of Mercury Vapor (MV) ballasts in the United States. While this legislation was passed in 2005, its effective date is January 1, 2008. |

EPAct 2005 represents a continuing trend, whereby state and federal agencies, are considering legislation that will sustain our environment for future generations and reduce U. S. dependence on foreign fossil fuels.


Lamp performance is measured by a variety of different metrics, but the most significant metric is lamp efficacy (lumens generated per watt of energy consumed). Mercury Vapor lamps are part of the HID lamp family, along with Metal Halide (MH), High Pressure Sodium (HPS), Low Pressure Sodium (LPS), and Induction. MV has the worst lamp efficacy (miles per gallon) compared to other light sources. Therefore, it was just a matter of time before this dinosaur was outlawed.
Mercury Vapor lamp benefits included long life, ease of maintenance, and it provided a white light source (when compared to HPS lamps).
Therefore, MV was an appropriate light source for rural and outdoor security lighting applications. With MV’s absence, a product gap has been created for those who desire an easy to maintain “white light” source at the best value.

11 Series 100w MH, 120v:

Maintenance:
- 24,000 hour life - Operates 100w MH, pulse start, mogul base, Philips’, CDM100/U/PS/4K ALTO lamp.
- End-of-life is an outage – unit does not cycle on-and-off like HPS.
- 6-year warranty
- 10kV rated
 
Energy Savings:
- Cost to operate is approximately $30.00/year less than 175w MV. Savings is per luminaire based on $.10/kwhr rate.

Color Quality
- Color Rendering Index (CRI) – 92 CRI compared to 45 CRI for MV. Improves ability to see greater detail at night.
- 4200K compared to MV @ 3700K – Light appears “whiter”

11 Series 175w MH, 120v:

Maintenance:
- End-of-life is an outage – unit does not cycle on-and-off like HPS.
- Reduces service calls - CWA ballast will eliminate light “drop out” as a result of momentary dip in line voltage.
- 6-year warranty
- 10kV rated

Energy Savings:
- Provides twice the light output at same energy consumption as MV.

Color Quality
- Color Rendering Index (CRI) – 65 CRI compared to 45 CRI for MV. Improves ability to see greater detail at night.
