We’ve reached a point where costs are competitive with incumbent lighting solutions and the marketplace is embracing LED as the light source of choice. Join us to discuss current LED technologies and controls for interior and exterior lighting applications. After we take a brief look back at where LED performance has been; we’ll review current trends in performance, costs and practical solutions. We’ll touch on the DesignLights Consortium, as well as available rebates and the consortium’s impact on lighting product choices.
