Energy efficiency is a driving factor of change in the commercial lighting industry. Analyzing and optimizing energy usage is always of high concern and should be high priority on the list of cost reduction projects. Manufacturers need to produce quality lighting for an optimal productive environment while using as little energy as possible. There are many programs in place that recognize manufacturers who achieve this combination of optimal lighting and energy efficiency.
The DesignLights Consortium (DLC) is a vast regional group, concentrated on energy efficiency in the commercial lighting industry. It is a part of the Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnership (NEEP), whose goal is to promote energy efficient lighting in the building sector by influencing public policy through information spreading strategies and education. Much of the progress and innovation in the lighting market is thanks to the efforts of the DLC and their allies.
Almost every company uses or is starting to implement LED lighting. All of these businesses should take advantage of learning about DLC products. The many benefits to using DLC products includes rebates, less energy usage and delivering an environmentally friendly product. A product that is qualified as Premium under the DLC means that it has achieved the greatest amount of efficiency. A normal DLC product must meet at least 90 lumens per watt (LPW), while a DLC Premium product must meet greater than 120LPW. GlobalTech LED is proud to participate in the DLC program and offer products that are DLC certified and qualified as DLC Premium. GlobalTech now offers Retrofit Kits for Outdoor Pole/Arm-Mounted Area and Roadway Luminaires that are DLC premium. The system utilizes structured LED clusters for optimized light distribution and are backed with a Solstice Light Engine 10 year warranty.
