The distinction was one of only twenty-six commercial LED outdoor lighting products recognized in the competition, which is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) the Illuminating Engineering Society of North American, and the International Association of Lighting Designers. The Lighting Quotient was recognized in the Façade Accent Lighting category.
