Rather than sit in the dark, go here and purchase CFL light bulbs assembled in the U.S.A. by TCP, the leader in energy-efficient lighting. While most of its products are manufactured in China, the company has initiated an Assembled in the USA line.
At it’s facility outside of Cleveland, Ohio the company is assembling its popular ultra compact, 23-Watt Pro Series T3 Full SpringLamp™ CFL light bulb. Measuring in at 4.5 inches long by 2.4 inches wide, the 23-watt lamp replaces a 100-Watt incandescent light bulb. It uses about 75% less energy, and lasts on average 12,000 hours.
•Completely assembled in the U.S.A.
•Ultra high efficiency ballast to increase lumen output
•Lateral cathode design to optimize thermal efficiency
•Exclusive end of life circuitry
•Long life, 12,000 hours average rated life
•New design and construction improves lumen maintenance

AURORA, Ohio, Nov. 17, 2011 — /PRNewswire/ — TCP, the leader in energy efficient lighting technology is excited to announce its LED lamp series of products that feature a powerful combination of category-leading performance, function, and value, have earned the ENERGY STAR® certification. TCP is excited that its LEDs now carry ENERGY STAR, further confirming TCP’s commitment, with one of the largest number of ENERGY STAR qualified lamps in the industry.
TCP’s LED lamps provide the industry’s best directional light output performance, by combining the world’s leading LED driver componentry, optical design and manufacturing capability, making them excellent alternatives to traditional PAR halogens. Our LEDs utilize an aesthetically pleasing aluminum housing which provides excellent heat dissipation and high efficiency. Plus, our LEDs use the highest-quality lamp optics, which are precision manufactured for perfect directional light beam control, with no annoying “hot spots” or beam washout effect. Achieving the ENERGY STAR solidifies TCP LEDs in the market.
“We are excited that our LED series has earned the ENERGY STAR,” says Vice President of Marketing at TCP, Jim Crowcroft. “Our LED strategy has been to produce products that exceed the ENERGY STAR requirements and provide them at a value price. Achieving ENERGY STAR for our LEDs is a great achievement.”
TCP’s LED lamps include PAR20, PAR30, PAR38 applications, and are all available in either narrow flood (25 degree) and flood (40 degree) beam spreads. These lamps are perfect for a wide variety of general lighting applications. All of TCP’s LEDs dim uniformly down to 0%, with no color-shifting, hum or annoying “flicker.” Also, the center-beam candlepower (CBCP) performance exceeds halogen and other LED products with similar beam angles, while providing very uniform beam patterns. These LED lamps exceed the industry standards in lumen requirements for 90W PAR38, 75W PAR30, and 45W PAR20 applications. A complete listing of TCP’s ENERGY STAR qualified LED lamps can be found at EnergyStar.gov. Bowman Lamps carries the full line of TCP LED products here.

Compact Fluorescent, LED, & Even Incandescent Light Bulbs Meeting Bulb Act Requirements November 2, 2011Posted by bowmanlamps in compact fluorescent light bulbs, lumen output number, energy savings, dimmable CFL, light bulb.

With an eye toward energy conservation, the United States is mandating better performance from a common, everyday item – the light bulb. Over the next few years, standard light bulbs will be phased out in favor of more energy efficient options, leaving some people to hoard their favorite incandescent bulbs.
This is not necessary. Advances in technology have made energy-efficient, high quality bulbs available at affordable prices – and within the standards established in the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007 (commonly referred to as the Bulb Act). Consumers may choose from compact fluorescent lamps (CFL), LED, and even improved-efficiency halogen-incandescents. (While not as energy efficient as CFLs or LEDs, the bulbs provide energy savings of about 28%. Look for EcoVantage bulbs at Home Depot.)
One of the main arguments against CFL and LED bulbs is they do not dim. However there are lines of fully dimmable CFL and LEDs. Check out the TCP TruDim series here. And the TCP dimmable LED series here. Those who do not like the spiral shape of CFLs can choose from a variety of covered options – even ones that look like standard light bulbs. You would never know there is a CFL hidden inside. And the TCP LED line is simply elegant.
Light bulb packaging requirements are also improving to meet the needs of more discerning shoppers. Bulbs are no longer being described just by wattage (how much energy is used), but by lumens (how much light is generated). In addition, packaging now includes annual usage cost, life expectancy, light appearance, wattage, mercury content – everything a consumer needs to know to make an informed decision.
So there is no need to fret over light bulbs. Just go to your nearest big box store or look online and see what lighting is available.

I have got to get me one of these! The Bulb Eater® Lamp Crusher is advertized as:
- Eliminating spent fluorescent light storage hassles
- Improving safety in the work environment
- And cutting costs
Simply put, the Bulb Eater crushes lamps of any size while filtering out mercury vapors. Over 1350 4 ft. T8 bulbs can be crushed into one 55 gallon drum. All this in preparation for fluorescent lamp recycling. Beyond that, it just looks like fun. Watch and see.
Bowman lamps has an endless supply of T8 and T5 linear lamps to feed your machine. Be sure to use them to light your space first.
Or find other linear lamps and products here.

Imagine light bulbs that keep on lighting long after you’ve lived your life and gone. A 2010 European documentary “The Light Bulb Conspiracy” outlines how planned obsolescence was introduced in the early 20th century with light bulbs – and it’s all designed to keep us buying and buying and buying. Fortuneately, the trend for light bulbs seems to be moving in the other direction. Check out a few here at bowmanlamps.com.

Wow! It looks like TCP has some great new products. Some are even available now at bowmanlamps.com. Go here to purchase some of the new TruDim fully dimmable CFL light bulbs.
Or read the press release below.
AURORA, Ohio, May 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — TCP, the world’s leading manufacturer of energy efficient lighting solutions, is introducing an extensive array of new compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) products and product enhancements at this week’s Hardware Show in Las Vegas, NV. These exciting new products, introduced under the TCP Lightstyles™ brand name, further enhance TCP’s comprehensive offering of energy efficient CFLs and pave the way for a smooth transition into the government mandated move away from inefficient incandescent light bulbs.
Leading the product line-up are TCP’s new high-performance dimmable CFLs. These lamps reach full brightness in seconds and dim smoothly down to 2% with zero low-end flicker. The patent-pending micro-chip ballast componentry featuring GreenChip™ Technology by NXP helps to better manage lamp voltage, resulting in unprecedented dimming performance. “These lamps combine powerful performance with intelligent design,” said Jim Connolly, Sr. Vice President – Retail, of TCP. “TCP Lightstyles™ dimming CFLs perform just like an incandescent, but unlike an incandescent, provide the highest levels of energy efficiency and long life.”
Additionally, the new Lightstyles™ family includes an expanded line of InstaBright™ and instant start products, offering even better CFL lamp performance. These new non-dimming CFLs also feature TCP’s micro-chip technology to speed start-up and run-up time by more than 100% vs. the previous generation of products. These CFLs also offer a rated life of 18 years – more than double that of most CFLs available today.
TCP is also introducing its new Remote Controlled CFL System featuring integrated wireless communication capability. These lamps can be fully controlled from anywhere inside the house using the handheld remote. This exciting new technology allows an unlimited number of CFLs to be programmed to one of four different “channels” on the remote.
TCP has also upgraded many of its popular InstaBright fast-starting covered CFLs to include Armor Coat™ technology as a standard feature. Armor Coat™ is a durable polymer coating that keeps the glass and bulb contents contained in case of breakage. The coating creates something similar to a protective skin around the bulb that gives peace of mind to the user without sacrificing any of the light output or performance. This bulb is safe for use in kids’ rooms, around pets, and food preparation areas. Now the industry’s fastest starting CFLs are also the safest.
