DLC or the Design Lighting Consortium tests commercial lighting for performance, efficiency, and quality. To get qualified, the product has to go through extensive third-party testing to ensure the performance matches the claims. DLC also works with utility companies around the country to include DLC-listed products in lighting rebates and incentive programs. Most utility companies require the fixture to be DLC listed to qualify for rebates, which helps in creating financially viable retrofit programs.
