DLC Networked Controls Specification Enables Utility Incentives

The DesignLights Consortium (DLC) has released a Networked Lighting Controls category in its Qualified Products List (QPL). The first qualifying products will be published in June 2016. The likely result is inclusion of networked lighting controls in rebate programs that annually allocate billions of dollars in funding to promote energy-efficient lighting. While lighting controls are common in rebate programs, penetration in existing commercial buildings remains low. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that daylight harvesting controls are installed in only two percent of commercial buildings, for example. DLC estimates that networked lighting controls are installed in less than one percent of lighting projects in member programs. Nearly all current prescriptive rebates do not recognize networked lighting control systems. http://lightingcontrolsassociation.org/topics/utility-rebates/dlc-networked-controls-specification-enables-incentives-for-utility-incentives/
