Hi the 75 % low energy lighting requirement only applies to new builds doesn't it ? Not re wires ? Also what is actually classed as low energy ?

All should comply with low energy, easy if all rose & pendants. Just sick cheap CF lamps in. Little harder with downlighters, but am finding most people go long with either LED fittings or LED lamps now. Have now fitted close on 500 JCC LED7 fittings.

We just did quite a large extension, and the lighting designer refuse to use LEDs. We had 40 odd downlights, a couple of up down wall lights, and 4 pendants. Not a low energy lamp in sight. I thought we'd struggle, but the building inspector didn't batt an eyelid!

' energy efficient ' lamps is the Requirement. you Need to look at the lumens per watt not just the power output
