									New GREEN CREATIVE A19 and BR30 High CRI
 lamps meet the California Quality Specification
    with CRI 92 and 4-step Macadam ellipse
Burlingame, CA, October 25, 2013 -- GREEN CREATIVE LLC, the commercial grade
LED lighting manufacturer announces the launch of its brand new TITANIUM LED
CRISP SERIES 3.0 A19 13W and BR30 13W High CRI lamps that meet the California
Quality Specification set forth by the California Energy Commission. With the release of
these new lamps, GREEN CREATIVE becomes one of the first companies to bring to
market multiple products that satisfy the California Quality Specification requirements.




Earlier this year, the California Energy Commission (CEC) issued the Voluntary
California Quality Light-Emitting Diode (LED) Lamp Specification for LED lamps used
in residential applications. This new specification, commonly referred to as “CEC” or
“California Quality Spec,” has set an LED lamp performance baseline for utilities to
consider that is more stringent than ENERGY STAR. Recently, some large California
Investor Owned Utilities such as PG&E, SCE, and SDG&E have adopted this
specification and currently offer higher-tier rebates for lamps that meet the requirements.

Two notable differences between ENERGY STAR requirements and the California
Quality Spec deal with color rendering and color temperature consistency. While
ENERGY STAR requires LED lamps to have a CRI =80 and R9 =0, the California
Quality Spec demands a CRI =90 and R9 =50. As members of GREEN CREATIVE’S
CRISP SERIES, the new A19 13W and BR30 13W lamps provide exceptional color
rendering with typical CRI 92 and R9 60 values. These new lamps make individual
colors look crisper and cleaner than typical CRI 80 LED lamps and are ideal for
applications that demand accurate color rendering such as retail, food, museums, and art
galleries.

In addition to a higher CRI, the California Quality Spec also requires a tighter
chromaticity than ENERGY STAR. A lamp’s color temperature now must fall within a 4-
step Macadam ellipse from the 2700K or 3000K points. This is stricter than ENERGY
STAR’s 7-step requirement. A 4-step Macadam ellipse minimizes lamp to lamp color
deviation, creates truer 2700K and 3000K CCTs, and ensures retrofit projects involving a
large number of lamps have a consistent color temperature. Both the new A19 and BR30
meet the CEC’s 4-step requirement and deliver comfortable diffused light in a Warm
White 2700K CCT.

The dimmable A19 13W replaces a 60W incandescent, is fully omnidirectional, has a
30,000-hour lifetime, and is ENERGY STAR qualified. Data sheet available here:
