Fluorescent lighting is decreasing in the market as LED lighting technology begins to take its place. FEMP has chosen to discontinue coverage of fluorescent lighting products. Federal employees may purchase any fluorescent lighting product that meets their need; however, we encourage the conversion to LED systems.

The following fluorescent lighting categories have been suspended under the FEMP-Designated efficiency program:

  • Fluorescent Luminaires, Ceiling Mounted
  • Fluorescent Ballasts
  • Fluorescent Lamps, General Service
  • Fluorescent Luminaires, Suspended
  • Industrial (High/Low Bay) Luminaires

On March 13, 2023, EPA announced final ENERGY STAR lighting sunset plans, effective December 31, 2024. For more information, visit theĀ ENERGY STAR lighting sunset web page.
