MODA is your one-stop solution for California's JA8 Compliant Linear Lighting Solutions
The new standards of JA8 are designed to improve the energy efficiency of new residential homes, including requiring all newly constructed single-family homes, townhouses and dwelling units of new multifamily buildings to use high efficacy lighting. To qualify as “high efficacy,” light sources must meet the requirements laid out in the recently updated Joint Appendix Section 8 (JA8). JA8 regulations focus on performance and lighting quality to increase consumer adoption of high efficacy lighting as well as provide the consumers/end users with a broader choice of lighting solutions.
Lighting that does not automatically qualify as high efficacy must be certified with the CEC as compliant with JA8. To qualify, products must meet specific efficacy, power factor, CCT, CRI, lifetime, dimming and flicker requirements.
Products that must meet JA8 requirements include:
Ceiling recessed downlight luminaires
Light sources in enclosed luminaires
LED luminaires with integral sources
Screw based LED lamps
Pin based LED lamps
GU-24 based LED light sources
MODA Light's NANO COVE, MINI COVE and MINI GRAZE are all compliant with the California JA8 requirements.
