The European Union RoHS directives restrict the use of hazardous substances such as mercury in electrical and electronic equipment. For years there was an exception for conventional fluorescent lamps but this ends in 2023.
As of this week, the European Union has officially banned the sale of circular fluorescent lamps (T5 & T9) and plug-in compact fluorescent lamps (CFLni). This move is part of the EU's ongoing efforts to reduce energy consumption and promote more sustainable lighting options. Additionally, from August 31st, 2023, fluorescent tubes will also be banned from being placed on the market.
But don't worry! We at OPPLE have got you covered. We offer a wide range of energy-efficient LED lighting solutions, from a simple solution to a Bluetooth-based wireless solution. OPPLE Lighting offers excellent quality LED lighting at a very affordable price. These solutions are not only environmentally friendly but also save you money in the long run.
Several options will quickly save you at least 60% energy:
Replace conventional lighting one-on-one with LED lighting. You then have a choice between LED T8 tubes, LED fixtures or a dimmable solution using Dali or 0-10V.
If you want to save on installation costs and also benefit from ease of use, then the Smart LED solutions are best suited for you. The luminaires are mounted and connected to the mains directly from the packaging. No additional cables or gateways are required. All fixtures can be controlled with the OPPLE Smart Lighting app. Additional energy savings can be achieved with the OPPLE Smart sensors. In combination with Smart sensors, savings of up to 70% can be achieved compared to the old situation.
So, if you're still using CFLs, now is the perfect time to make the switch to LED lighting. Not only will you save money, but you'll also be doing your part to protect the planet.
