Trusted Warranties

My contribution to the October issue of ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR talks about LED product warranties and the National Lighting Bureau’s recently launched Trusted Warranty Program.


Ten Years of LED Rebates

While rebates for commercial lighting have been around since the 1980s, rebates for LEDs specifically didn’t see widespread acceptance until 2011. Now, 10 years later, we can take an in-depth look at LED rebates and the marketplace.


Million LED Challenge in Full Swing

Are you aware of the Million LED Challenge in California? This program is a collaborative effort by the University of California, California State University, California Community Colleges, and the California State Department of General Services. It recently expanded to include options for converting linear fluorescent lighting to LED.


PNNL Estimates Energy Savings for Advanced LED Lighting

A study funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) estimates the energy savings opportunity associated with advanced lighting research conducted by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) related to glare, flicker, color rendering, non-visual effects of lighting, and outdoor environmental effects of lighting.
