Answer: 
That is my understanding. They do have the energy star symbol on them. As for rebates, each utility may be different. I work in the power industry, and our municipal members do have rebates for these lamps. But, I live out in the country on co-op lines. Our co-op does not have rebates on these, to my knowledge. It varies. Check websites or call.

There are a couple different bulbs that Phillips makes for the BR30 style bulb, Both bulbs are rated as a 65 watt replacement, however one uses 9.5 watts and the other 13 watts. The one that used 9.5 watts has a light output of 650 Lumens and is Energy Star rated. The one that is 13 watts has a light output of 730 Lumens and because it uses more watts than is certified by the gov't agency Read More

Example: If you live in New Prague, MN. Go to your favorite search engine, and type in "New Prague, MN utilities." Click on your local utility company (New Prague Utilities Commission), and click on Energy Star Appliance Rebate. If you are lucky, LED bulbs will be listed. Read More

Yes and no. I just bought 14 of these lights and got a mix of two models with the same UPC. 9290002544 is 10.5W and the packaging is marked energy star compliant. 9290002197 is 13W and the packaging is NOT marked energy star compliant. '2544 has a white bezel and '2197 has a silver bezel. Buyer beware. I assume the '2197s were older stock. I can't speak about the rebates.

4" seems too small to me. I have some of those smaller cans in my downstairs family room. I plan to replace the halogens with LEDs, but I don't think these will work. Too long. These replace a standard 65W small diameter flood. I suggest visiting with an expert at Home Depot. I have learned much from them and don't hesitate to ask.

Answer: 
I used this bulb in my 6" can. There is a little gap. A BR30 is best for a can with 5" trim, it should work in a 4", but it's tight.
Just test it out to see if you like it, HD always gives no hassle returns.
Something to consider--I didn't like the dimming, since it stays the same white color as it dims.

Answer: 
It will work fine there. A closed fixture is generally viewed as one that is totally enclosed, such as a laundry room ceiling light where the entire fixture is covered by a glass globe. These tend to hold a lot of heat, which elevates the temperature of the bulb and its electronic contents, which can significantly shorten the life of the circuitry that drives the LEDs.

You did not mentioned the size of the closed fixture but I installed one in my large closed fixture in our balcony! so I guess the answer to your question is how big is your closed fixture?! it worth the try worst case is it don't fit and you can always use the bulb on some other locations in your house and start saving some money for yourself! Good Luck!

Is this Philips LED R30 bulb a "long neck"?

This question is from 65W Equivalent Soft White (2700K) BR30 Dimmable LED Flood Light Bulb (E)*
Asked by
Columbus, GA
Read all my Q&A
November 19, 2013
I've heard longneck R30 LEDs are made but haven't seen a lighting application where they would be required. Specs list this bulb's assembled height at ~8" versus ~5" for others; I'm hoping that's incorrect! The listed width is also larger than the other R30s, though... possibly closer in size to an incandescent PAR 38 or 40, although I didn't check to confirm. I think I saw an R40 LED, and will look for it again to compare. I don't entirely trust the accuracy of specifications, though; I've had to make several returns for no other reason than specs being incorrectly stated online.

Will someone who has actually purchased a Cree, Ecosmart or other brand - in addition to the Philips - comment with certainty on the size of the Philips bulb compared to another brand? It's darned hard to resist changing all my R30s to LED at the current price, but I'd only be irritated at having to return them if they are longer than average. Both the #hated# CFL and incandescent floods currently installed in my house already extend all the way to the outer rim of their recessed "eyeball" fixtures; even another 1/2" would not do!

Hoping for a quick answer before the price goes back up... Thanks a million!

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 91 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice for 1/2 Bath My wife had put a CFL light in the bathroom and it took a while to light up. This turns on almost instantly. Now I want 5 more for my master bath, and 2 for my great room. It's nice they're on sale for $14.97. I couldn't find them cheaper anywhere else. It appears to be about 1/4 inch longer, but it's not. The silver band and different shaped end makes it look longer. If your can/rim aren't securely attached, the heavier bulb will pull it down some as you can see in my picture. It appears I need to look at the way my can is attached, so the weight is going to make it a bit of pain.. December 3, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great replacement I think you pay a little more for the Phillips but I think overall they are worth the money. The Quality is the best I have seen in all the LEDs out. I have replaced most of the bulbs in my house with Phillips LEDs and have not had any problems. The Bulbs look great in can lighting. They Dim up and down very well even with my older (not LED rated) dimmer. I try to find the ones that have been reduced in price and buy a few each payday so I don't go over budget. I hope this helps if your Looking to switch over. March 1, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great light... great price.. Picked up at HD for around 16 a piece. Replaced 15 total 65 watt incadescent recessed bulbs. I was very happy 2700K light range which produced very bright light. They were so bright, I put an LED dimmer for $20. A side note, when using the dimmer switch, the lowest range of the LED is still brighter than the lowest range of the incadescent bulb. Also, after you add the dimmer switch, it takes a second for the lights to come on. Not a big deal for me! January 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A technological marvel This ceiling can flood light has excellent features: 1. Uses only 13 watts, easily producing at least as much light as the 65 W bulb it replaced. 2. It comes on instantly with full brightness. 3. It fits nicely in the can, with apparently the same outer envelope as the bulb it replaced. 4. If it lasts the 22.3 years advertised, it represents terrific value. April 1, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 13-Watt (65W) BR30 LED Indoor Flood Soft White (2700K) Light Bulb, Dimmable. This 13-Watt (65W) BR30 LED Indoor Flood Soft White (2700K) Light Bulb, Dimmable it is one of the well made LED light bulb in the market. After Installing it in our living room we could see how nice and easy was of updating our room by just changing the old gas guzzler light bulbs to this all new LED lights!! This lights made a day and night different in our room, much cooler, much low energy usage, and plus Eco friendly too!! We like it a lot!! One of best LED lighting to date. September 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good bulbs may qualify for energy rebates! I looked at several bulbs before making a switch to LED, after all there is no way I am going to spend almost 10x the price of regular BR30 bulbs unless I am sure I am buying a good longterm replacement. I read plenty of reviews from a well known online retailer before buying this but I bought it locally just in case their was a defective one as I bought 8 of them at the same time. This bulb works well, has a decent color, and is dimmable with the correct type of dimmer switch. I would definitely try to find rebate options, as here in NH there was a $5 rebate per bulb for Energy Star rated bulbs and this one qualified. I would buy this again if needed. August 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wife can't tell the difference between these and Incandecents 1/5 the power draw and 1/5 the heat production (a big deal in the hot Southeast) and my wife is none the wiser. We have an array of 6 can lights recently installed in the kitchen and the first incandecent burned out after just 3 months. I'm hoping these lights will be more reliable, but they've already proven to be much cooler (temperature wise). The best part is that even when they are off it is hard to tell the difference between the old-school bulbs and the replacement LEDs from Philips. I wish they weren't $30, but if they last half as long as they claim on the box then the numbers will work out in the LEDs favor by a good margin. June 15, 2013
