About DLC Ratings for Lighting
There are many electrical certification programs designed to protect customers and identify high-quality and safe products. This article explains the DLC rating system for lighting products, which is of special interest for commercial lighting projects.
DLC applies to fixtures and LED tubes, which are not covered by the Energy Star label. Most utility companies require fixtures to be DLC rated in order to qualify for rebates, which are often an important part of creating a retrofit program that makes financial sense.
