Universal Lighting Technologies is among the charter members of the new NEMA Premium Ballast Program, which recognizes excellence in energy-saving technology. The program is designed to identify the industry’s most efficient T8 ballasts, including the entire ULTim8® family of electronic ballasts from Universal Lighting Technologies.
The National Electrical Manufacturers Association established the NEMA Premium Ballast Program in accordance with standards established by the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE). Eligible products include instant start and programmed rapid start ballasts for four-foot T8 lamps. Products which qualify will have the NEMA Premium designation displayed.

We’re exited to be a part of it.”
