If your facility operates any of the millions of T12 fluorescent lamps currently in use, start planning to replace them with more efficient alternatives. In 2012, production of most T12 lamps will be phased out, following new DOE fluorescent lamp regulations effective that year.
These changes, along with the elimination of many T12 magnetic ballasts this year will compel many facility mangers to upgrade their lighting, according to a recent article from Today's Facility Manager.
The article explains how T12s are regulated and offers insight on planning for the change, from installation methods and creating an upgrade timeline, to ensuring replacement lighting quality and efficiency.
