Orient Electric limited has become India’s first brand to have been awarded with 5-star rating for its 9W LED bulbs by Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE). Under its labelling program for LED bulbs, BEE considers luminous efficacy and other safety requirements like the photo-biological safety as main parameters to rate the bulbs on a five-star scale for energy efficiency.
Talking about the achievement, Puneet Dhawan, senior vice-president and business head, lighting, Orient Electric, said, “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 labelling for LED bulbs as it helps to assure the consumer in terms of light output and energy savings.
“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 endeavour to provide value to consumers, we have now voluntarily adopted BEE 5-star rating for high demand 9W LED bulbs,” Mr Puneet added.
Boasting on this achievement, he further said, “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 High-bay lights and indoor lights backed by a fully integrated in-house R&D team and Competence Centre.
