luneraA report from the U.S. General Services Administration’s Green Proving Ground program backs plug-and-play LEDs downlight lamps as replacements for compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), according to the Lunera.

The release says that it provided the LEDs that were tested. They saved 40 percent to 50 percent with matching quality and light levels to the CFLs, the release said.

The company said that in 2014 its LEDs were selected from more than 120 choices for the program. Results of the testing – which was conducted in three federal buildings – were released last month. The tests were conducted by the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, an independent research lab.

On March 31, Lunera announced the SensAble Technology platform. The product incorporates a sensor, modem and microprocessor into the bulb itself. It is optimized for Internet of Things (IoT) operations.
