Over the last decade, the U.S. lighting market has undergone a number of regulatory and technological “shocks” that are revolutionizing the way we think about lighting our homes and workplaces. The rapid evolution of solid-state lighting (SSL), also known as LED lighting, represents the most significant technological disruption that the lighting industry has experienced in generations.
The introduction of SSL raises an entirely new set of questions, concerns, and technical considerations for lighting designers, building owners, and efficiency program managers. The resulting confusion has left the industry vulnerable to the risks posed by substandard products, fly-by-night manufacturers, and exaggerated claims.
MEEA has developed and assembled knowledge and resources to facilitate the adoption of advanced lighting in homes, facilities, and utility programs across the Midwest.
