The key parts of these regulations are as follows:

  • Three per four light fittings in the home (75%) need to be energy efficient
  • Energy efficient light fittings should have an efficiency greater than 45 lumens per circuit watt and a total output of greater than 400 lumens
  • Light fittings less than 5 watts are excluded from the count of fittings
