CALCTP-AT Technicians Serve New Title 24 Role for Lighting Controls

California’s newest Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24, Part 6) take effect July 1, 2014 and include an unprecedented number of requirements for lighting controls. To ensure newly installed lighting controls operate properly, the new standards also require that a certified lighting controls acceptance test technician conduct and document all required lighting controls acceptance tests.

Berkeley Begins LED Streetlight Project

The City of Berkeley recently approved a project to upgrade approximately 8,000 streetlights to LED technology by the end of 2014. The project is expected to cut the city’s CO2 emissions from streetlight energy consumption by 50% and reduce Berkeley’s total emissions by about 7%.

“We would like to thank the Bay Area Climate Collaborative, California Energy Commission and the California Lighting Technology Center for their support in getting this project to design and construction,” said Phillip Harrington, Berkeley’s Deputy Public Works Director.

Adaptive LED Post-top Luminaires, Los Angeles Trade Technical College

05/01/2012

In the summer of 2010 the California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) and Philips Hadco produced an adaptive solution that combined a dimmable LED source and a mounting collar equipped with occupancy sensors. The collar provides 360-degree occupancy sensor coverage. This demonstration involved whole-head replacement of the existing luminaires, but results could also be achieved with a retrofit kit. The new luminaires feature good color quality, improved efficiency and a longer lifespan.
