New EU energy labels for light bulbs will apply from September 1


Helen O’Dwyer, of Solus, writes:

A brand-new version of the widely-recognised EU energy label for light bulbs and light sources will be applicable in all shops and online retailers from September 1st  with an 18-month transition period for products already on the market.

The most important change is a return to a simple A-G scale on energy labels because more and more products are now achieving ratings as A, A+ or A++ according to the current scale causing confusion for consumers.  [Solus webinar on the changes here]

The new energy label will leave empty energy efficiency classes at the top of the scale for advancing technologies and to encourage manufacturers to develop more energy efficient products…


This afternoon.

Irish light bulb company, Solus shines a ‘light’ on great grandfather Paddy Price, age 89, a beardless Irish Santy who has brought cheer to the village of Prosperous, County Kildare since 1965. Part of a series of stories highlighting ‘ordinary people that do extraordinary things’.

In fairness.

Irish lighting company Solus demonstrated that they are light years ahead as they piloted the first ever retail drone delivery of light bulbs to a retail store.

Mark Kavanagh, Marketing Director of the Kavanagh Group joined David Reynolds, Sales and Marketing Director of Solus and Former Miss World Rosanna Davison to receive the delivery of Solus light bulbs to SuperValu in Westport…

…Solus piloted the drone delivery experiment in controlled conditions…The assignment contained 30 candle bulbs and arrived in perfect condition and ahead of schedule proving that even something as delicate as a ligh tbulb can be delivered by drone and perfectly intact.
