Lighting Industry Update Series: Part 1
The DesignLights Consortium (DLC) recently announced an update to the solid-state qualified products list (QPL) with new changes set to benefit utility programs on the horizon. The update to version 5.1 (current version is 5.0) has officially been announced and is set to take effect next year. TLEDs under the new update will not be required to be in full compliance with the new standard until the end of 2021. This extended period will ensure manufacturers and utility programs have enough time to factor the change into their product designs and program frameworks.
