The DLC Solid-State Lighting QPL Just Surpassed 300,000 Qualified Products!

Today, the DLC solid-state lighting QPL reached 300,000 products that meet current DLC Technical Requirements. That’s 300,000 commercial lighting products that are 50% more efficacious than just five years ago. With lighting currently representing approximately 7% of the US’s total electricity consumption and 17% of all electricity consumed in US commercial buildings, this efficacy increase across 300,000 products is a significant win in continuing to reduce emissions. Congratulations to the manufacturers who are bringing innovation and quality to the market and the policy-makers and DLC Members who are inciting change. Together, we are driving the efficiency of products up, and our energy load down across the US and Canada.
