Pop quiz
Test your knowledge of LED lighting

LEDs are rapidly changing the landscape for commercial and industrial lighting systems. Learn how to compare LED lighting solutions to existing systems using metrics such as such as product life, lumen output, productivity, human centric lighting, color rendition, ambiance, dimmability, energy consumption, recycling issues, and cost. We’ll evaluate several lighting systems and calculate the benefits of upgrading to LEDs. We’ll also discuss lighting trends, federal legislation, Energy Star- and DesignLights Consortium-compliant products, rebates, and new code changes that will affect future lighting solutions and controls.
