Cree LR6 change?

Posted by geobrick (My Page) on

I installed several Cree LR6 lights last October (2009). They were the Edison base type and they had a green ground wire attached intended to attach to the fixture to ground the light.

I just got a bunch more (a year later) and they don't have that green ground wire attached. Is this a new change or a different version intended for a different market?

To answer my own question, I called CREE and they told me that UL determined the ground wire is no longer required.

It saves at least 10 minutes on the installation process so I like the change.
