General Service Lamps

Product Information 

General service lamps (GSLs) include general service incandescent lamps (GSILs), compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), general service light-emitting diode (LED) lamps, organic light-emitting diode (OLED) lamps, and any other lamps that are used to satisfy lighting applications traditionally served by GSILs. GSLs are used in general lighting applications and account for the majority of installed lighting in the residential sector. There are currently no standards for GSLs. However, certain products included in the definition of GSLs have existing energy conservation standards, specifically GSILs and medium base CFLs.
