“NEEP and the DLC are doing a fantastic job in providing leadership and guidance to help the green building community choose quality solid-state lighting systems. As the world of Solid-State Lighting rapidly expands, DLC’s qualified product list will be an invaluable tool to the people trying to specify efficient LED lighting for retrofits, renovations, and new builds,” said Jeff Bisberg, CEO, Albeo Technologies. “Large scale deployment of energy efficient LED lighting is a critical step in reducing greenhouse gas concentrations, enabling energy independence, and creating a sustainable world.”

Solid-State Light fixtures on DLC’s qualified product list may be eligible for state and utility energy efficiency program incentives. These rebates are an important part of an efficiency program and when combined with energy and maintenance savings, LED light fixtures can have paybacks in as little as 2 years. As electricity rates rise and LED fixtures continue to improve, payback periods will continue to drop and provide an important solution for any green build or renovation project.
