LED Lighting Facts® Program is Ending

Did you know the Department of Energy is ending the LED Lighting Facts® Program? Here's how the DesignLights Consortium® is reacting and the short and long term implications.

Don’t know what the LED Lighting Facts program is?


The DOE's LED Lighting Facts program showcases LED products for general illumination from manufacturers who commit to testing products and reporting performance results according to industry standards. For lighting buyers, designers, and energy efficiency programs, the program provides information essential to evaluating SSL products. Central to the program is the LED Lighting Facts label, which presents independently verified performance data in a simple summary that facilitates accurate comparison between products. The data is measured by the industry standard for testing photometric performance, IES LM-79, and covers five areas: light output (lumens), watts, efficacy (lumens per watt), correlated color temperature, and color rendering index. Optional information related to LED lumen maintenance and warranty may also be provided on the label. Learn more about the LED Lighting Facts program here.
