Orient Electric Limited has become the first Indian lighting brand to have been awarded 5-star rating for its 9W LED bulbs by Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) as announced by UNI
BEE, under its labeling program for LED bulbs, considers luminous efficacy (Lumens per watt) and other safety requirements like the photo-biological safety as main parameters to rate the bulbs on a five-star scale for energy efficiency.
Puneet Dhawan, Senior Vice President, and Business Head, Lighting, Orient Electric further commented, “We are proud to be amongst the first to have certified BEE-5-star rated LED bulbs. We have always been a firm supporter of BEE’s star labeling for LED bulbs as it helps to assure the consumer in terms of light output and energy savings.
Boasting on this achievement, he further added, “Also, we were the pioneers to introduce and market BEE 3 star rated bulbs way back in 2016 and this norm has now been made mandatory for all. In our consistent endeavor to provide value to customers, we have now voluntarily adopted BEE 5-star rating for high demand 9W LED Bulbs.
“Our LED lighting business has grown 8 times in just 2 years. We are today one of the largest LED bulb manufacturers in the country in the non-OEM category and a preferred supplier to many government institutions”, Puneet noted.
Orient Electric has a fully integrated manufacturing set-up for making electronic drivers, LED modules and finished bulbs, various LED luminaires e.g. Streetlights, Floodlights, Industrial Highbay lights and indoor lights backed by a fully integrated in-house R&D team and Competence Centre
