Why Product Images?

The Solid-State Lighting Qualified Products List (SSL QPL) is a valuable reference tool for energy efficiency programs to verify that lighting products are eligible for rebates. To assist in this process, the DLC will begin accepting and displaying product images that correspond with product listings, allowing reviewers to cross-reference product specification sheets with QPL listings more easily.

Submitting Images:

Submitting a product image to include in a QPL listing will be optional. To support manufacturers who list their products on the SSL QPL, there will be no fee to submit product images.

A high-level overview of the image submission process can be found at the bottom of the draft policy. Complete instructions for the image submission process will be provided when the DLC begins accepting images.

Please submit comment forms to by close of business, Thursday, August 31. We look forward to engaging with you to increase the value of the SSL QPL.
