Residential Lighting (+4.6%) and Lamps (+10.1%) led an otherwise quiet Electrical Price Index in August. These dramatic increase may reflect concern over the import of LEDs from China. The Total Index was up +0.4% for the month and +2.6% year-over-year. EM’s EPI was quiet otherwise, with few categories showing a change of more than 1%: Pole-Line Hardware (-1.8%); Conduit Fittings (+1.9%); and Nonmetallic Conduit (+1.5%).
