JA8 High Efficacy Lighting

Luminaires that meet the strict requirements of Title 24

California’s Building Energy Efficiency Standard Title 24, Part 6 is designed to ensure new and existing residential and nonresidential buildings achieve energy efficiency. Considered one of the strictest energy codes in the United States, it is published and regularly updated by the California Energy Commission (CEC) to preserve the quality of the environment through the reduction of energy usage by limiting the allowed lighting power, in watts, in a building. Residential luminaires must be certified to meet the High Efficacy Lighting standards under Joint Appendix 8 (JA8).

Our 2016 & 2019 JA8 High Efficacy Lighting luminaires meet the strict energy standards and other criteria specified by the CEC for both residential and nonresidential applications, ensuring energy savings without compromising on light quality.
