The LED Lighting Facts program provides credible, verified performance information about light-emitting diode (LED) lighting products to retailers, utilities, specifiers, energy efficiency program sponsors, and lighting users. The goal is to enable widespread market adoption of energy-efficient LED products by removing the lack-of-information market barrier. For the solid-state lighting market to grow, buyers must have accurate information that allows them to choose the right products for their applications. LED Lighting Facts is open to all entities that manufacture, sell, or recommend LED lighting. Manufacturers pledge to test their products and register them with LED Lighting Facts; partners pledge to use them. These activities support widespread adoption of LED technology, as well as the U.S. Department of Energy’s goal of reducing building energy use by 50% and building energy costs by $2.2 trillion by 2030.
