Green Electrical Supply is proud to offer Simkar fixtures that comply to HPT8 programs. The HPT8 program was initiated by the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE), a national group of utilities, energy conscious organizations and educational programs to identify and promote High Performance T8 products. HPT8 systems are required to be eligible for certain rebate programs. HPT8 ballasts are available in three levels: Low Ballast Factor (<.85) – look for HPL in our part numbers, Normal Ballast Factor (>.85 but < 1.0) – look for HPN in our part numbers and High Ballast Factor (greater than or equal to 1.01) – look for HPH in our part numbers. Consult your local utility to determine if HPT8 products are required for your project to be eligible for rebate programs in your area.
For T8 lamps, High Performance is a 32 watt, 3100+ lumen lamp that has a life of 24,000 hours based on programmed or rapid start ballasts, 94% lumen maintenance and CRI greater than 81. For lamps with a color temperature greater than 4500K, 2950 initial lumens is acceptable.
