Established in 1998, the DesignLights Consortium (DLC) provides a guide to energy efficient lighting solutions for individual and commercial operating spaces. Offices, retail spaces, warehouses, and other commercial establishments need modern and energy efficient equipment, including lighting, in order to grow quality businesses and attract lifelong customers. In 2010, the Northeast Energy Efficient Partnerships (NEEP) created the DesignLights Consortium™ Qualified Products List (QLP) of Commercial Grade LED luminaires. The platform created by DLC highlights the potential for collaboration among program members and provides information, tools, and technical expertise on the forefront of lighting technologies. A proud member of this consortium, Global Tech’s standards of LED lights and retrofit fixtures speak for themselves within this esteemed community.
As Energy.gov states, “widespread use of LED lighting has the greatest potential impact on energy savings in the United States.” Other research suggests that by 2027, LED usage will be so widespread that energy savings could surpass 348 TWH of electricity, the equivalent annual output of 44 power plants. Rating light efficiency poses a problem, however. Only with a high tech DLC-rated LED light like the Gemini from Global Tech can you slash your efficiency measurement troubles. Simply beautiful and beautifully efficient, the Gemini hooks into your ceiling with ease.
DLC certified products, such as the Gemini, are also eligible for local and federal incentives. Many of DLC’s qualified products can be found here. The DLC is committed to boosting the national adoption of strong and efficient commercial lighting solutions and finds the path to doing so paved by the community. The key to illuminating the importance of LEDs and DLC certification to the community, however, is found in data analyses of energy savings, which can be hard to assemble.
Besides the difficult task of wading through countless spreadsheets across industries, the idea of counting savings is a paradox in that you can’t measure what you never used. According to a recent Electric Light & Power newsletter, on top of this, latency problems are also quick to highlight the difficulties in measuring energy efficiency. Because savings aren’t measured until measuring programs have run for at least a year, financial uncertainty skyrockets for all parties involved. In addition, often energy efficiency still can’t match consumer and business expectations.
Only one answer exists on the market today that can meet commercial expectations of reliable lighting solutions. Investing in an energy program that boasts an excellent design implementation, such as the Gemini, will yield innumerable profits and experiences. While latency and environmental variables complicate energy efficient reports, the DLC has stepped up to challenge this reality and improve lighting solutions nationwide. Within this community of solutionists, Global Tech has risen to the call and produced many of the most prestigious LED products in the country.
Rise to the challenge with Global Tech and find out which solutions best match your lighting deficiencies.
