CK Birla Group company Orient Electric has become the first Indian lighting brand to have been awarded 5-Star rating for its 9W LED bulb by BEE (Bureau of Energy Efficiency).

The company’s 9W 5-star rated LED bulb meets BIS safety standards, has long life of 25000 hours, and delivers 120 lumens per watt.

Commenting on the achievement, Orient Electric, Lighting, Sr. Vice President and Business Head, Puneet Dhawan 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. Also, 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 endeavor to provide value to consumers, we have now voluntarily adopted BEE 5-star rating for high demand 9W LED bulbs.”

He further added, “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. Over the last 3 years, we have focused most of our investments on new product development, quality enhancement and automation, indigenising components and expanding production capacities. Our products are at par with global standards in terms of quality as well as cost.”

BEE, under its labelling program for LED bulbs, considers luminous efficacy (Lumens per watt) and other safety requirements like photo-biological safety as main parameters to rate the bulbs on a five-star scale for energy efficiency.
