ENERGY STAR Symbol

Lighting - LED Luminaires

The design of LED lighting fixtures is crucial to good performance, which is affected by various thermal and electrical conditions.

New industry standards, test procedures, and ENERGY STAR criteria have been developed to better evaluate and compare this technology with other light sources.

There are many variations in quality and effectiveness of lighting products, so look for the ENERGY STAR symbol. Only products that meet or exceed higher energy efficiency levels, without compromising performance, are allowed to display the symbol.

ENERGY STAR qualified LED luminaires:

  • equal the brightness of other light fixtures
  • distribute light well
  • maintain consistent light output over their rated lifetimes
  • have excellent colour quality
  • have efficacy equal to, or better than, fluorescent lighting
