CA Title 24 - Do I need to comply?
I currently have fluorescent undercabinet lights, and I want to replace them with Xenon lights.
I was about to order the lights, but learned on this forum about the "Title 24" requirement that kitchens in California use half their Watts from high efficiency lights (e.g., fluorescent).
I'm not sure whether I need to comply with this rule or not. My house was built in 2002 (before Title 24 went into effect), but the change from fluorescent to xenon would happen this year.
Do I need to comply?
Or can I switch to Xenon?
* Note: I use fluorescent lighting heavily throughout my house, but for my undercabinet lighting I really want to use the Xenon if it's allowed by CA law.
