Evaluating LED Light Fixtures

Evaluating LED Fixtures can be challenging; how accurate is the specification sheet? The Lighting Facts Label and the DesignLights Consortium (DLC) listing is designed to reduce the confusion and help you select a high quality product. The DesignLights Consortium (DLC) is a partner of local energy efficiency groups and utility companies. The DLC is hosted and managed by the Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnership (NEEP). Its members are organizations located across the United States and Canada that promote utility, state, regional and national energy efficiency programs. The DLC is a voluntary program that applies only to LED/SSL commercial lighting products that are not included in the ENERGY STAR® program. (ul.com)
