January 29th, 2014, GREEN CREATIVE, the commercial grade LED lighting manufacturer is proud to announce the ENERGY STAR qualification of its CRISP SERIES MR16 7W High CRI directional lamp. This is the first MR16 with a CRI 95 to ever receive ENERGY STAR qualification.
When asked about this accomplishment, GREEN CREATIVE’s Product Manager, Matthew Leonard, replied, “We are extremely proud to have the first and only CRI 95 MR16 ENERGY STAR qualified lamp. We always strive to make sure our products meet the industry’s highest standards, whether it’s ENERGY STAR, the CA Quality Spec, or DLC, and this MR16 is no exception.”
This 45W halogen replacement has a typical CRI 95 and features the latest in LED color rendering technology. LED CRI testing analyzes the chromatic effect of a light source over a scale of 14 standard colors (R1-R14) and assigns each tested color a value (100 is perfect). CRI is then calculated by taking the average of the R1-R8 values. This same CRI number commonly seen on packaging and specification sheets can mislead end users because it only refers to eight of the tested colors.
Although the R9-R14 colors are measured, they have no impact on a lamp’s CRI rating. So while some LEDs claim to have a high CRI, they may do a poor job rendering other key colors. GREEN CREATIVE’S MR16 7W High CRI lamp has exceptional R1-R14 values including typical R9 95 and R13 95 ratings. This ensures reds (R9) look richer and skin tones (R13) look natural.
Unlike most high CRI LEDs, the CRISP SERIES MR16 delivers outstanding color rendering without sacrificing efficiency. At 465 lumens, this 1:1 halogen form factor lamp features an extremely high 66 LPW efficacy. This is over 50% more efficient than any other high CRI 45-50W replacement MR16. This lamp was featured in the Illuminating Engineering Society’s 2013 Progress Report for its innovation and significance within the lighting industry.

GREEN CREATIVE designed this lamp specifically for applications that demand accurate color rendering such as retail, food, museums, and art galleries. In the past, people had to choose between having either high color rendering or energy saving efficiency with their lighting. Now they can have both.
The dimmable MR16 7W High CRI is ENERGY STAR qualified in 3000K and 2700K CCT in narrow flood and flood beam angles. This lamp is UL listed Class I & II, has a 30,000-hour lifetime, and is backed by a 3 year warranty.
