Sol Inc., the leading provider of solar and LED outdoor lighting solutions, announced today that it has received certification from DesignLight Consortium (DLC) Qualified Products List (QPL) for its 20/20™ TST H-Series (Type II and Type III) line voltage LED luminaires in the “Outdoor Pole/Arm-Mounted Area and Roadway Luminaires” category.
The DLC is a collaboration of utility companies and regional energy efficiency organizations committed to raising awareness of the benefits of efficient lighting in commercial buildings. Its goal is to ensure that high-quality, energy efficient lighting design becomes commonplace in all commercial lighting installations. LED fixtures on the QPL, which includes categories of product types not currently covered by ENERGY STAR, may be eligible for state and utility energy efficiency program incentives.
"The DLC evaluates fixtures based on strict performance criteria, and we're pleased the 20/20™ H-Series luminaires have earned this certification," said Paul Wickberg, President and CEO of Sol Inc. "Lighting plays a critical role in helping outdoor illuminated areas become more energy efficient. Our high lumen output fixtures are a superior alternative to traditional HPS and HID lighting sources, delivering significant energy savings and fast payback periods. With the DLC certifications in place, Sol improves its offering in the global marketplace and our customers will be able to benefit not only from the longevity of our products but the cost savings associated with better performance."
The 20/20™ LED luminaires are engineered with forward throw optics to create light uniformity on the ground and improve visual acuity. The certification from the DLC assures Sol customers receive the performance they’re expecting and paying for as well as obtain incentives from state and utility energy programs.
In addition to being DLC approved, Sol’s 20/20™ line voltage LED luminaires are IP 65 rated, TÜV listed to UL 1598:09.2008 and CSA C22.2 No. 250.0-08, IESNA LM-79-08 tested and IDA Dark Sky certified.
