Legislation Impacts Lighting Installations

Are You Aware of Industry Happenings?

Installing a new or retrofitting an existing lighting system is more than lamp replacements. In fact, it can get complex when dealing with legislation. In order to conserve our nation’s resources, the U.S. Congress is passing legislative acts that will directly impact your lighting installations:

We’re here to help you to find the best lighting product to meet the needs of your application, and that includes looking at compliancy. We are dedicated to delivering higher efficiency, reduced wattages, improved lumen output and longer lamp life, so you’ll be closer to meeting industry standards. TCP will walk you through answering the following questions:

  • When should I look at compliance?
  • What regulatory standards affect me?
  • Does ENERGY STAR or DesignLight Consortium (DLC) mean it’s compliant?
  • Will dimming compatibility be an issue for my control system?

Bottom line, energy efficient lamps are becoming a must. By working with TCP, we’ll help you to find the best fit for your application by choosing a quality, energy efficient product. Our team can help you to simplify the process for obtaining a utility rebate when looking to install energy efficient lighting products. However, note that every construction project is different. Therefore, before selecting your product, please consult with your utility company for exact requirements on compliance.
