Dear Valued Customers,


THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY GRANTS USHIO AMERICA EXEMPTION FOR 700 SERIES T8 LAMPS.

As a result of this decision, USHIO may continue to manufacture its Ultra8™ T8 700 Series general service fluorescent lamps (GSFLs) until July 14, 2014. This will allow the 700 Series T8 fluorescent lamps to remain in the USHIO product catalog for an additional 2 years.
