Apply Today! 2018 Interior Lighting Campaign Recognition
The 2018 Interior Lighting Campaign (ILC) Recognition process is underway! Each year, the ILC recognizes organizations that have achieved exceptional performance in reducing lighting energy use in buildings.
Participant Recognition ... Commercial building owners, operators and managers can submit an entry for several recognition categories depending on the size and type of site(s) upgraded with high efficiency lighting systems and controls solutions.
Recognition categories include:
Sector specific categories are also available for the following: commercial real estate and hospitality, healthcare, higher education, retail, food service, or grocery, federal government, and state and municipal government.
Supporter Recognition ... Energy efficiency organizations, utilities, or service providers (ESCO/Lighting as a Service) can submit an entry documenting the number of high efficiency lighting systems installed through their energy efficiency/utility program(s).
The deadline for recognition applications is April 23, 2018.
Expanded Luminaire Categories
The Interior Lighting Campaign added three new luminaire types in addition to troffers. Now you can receive recognition for significant energy savings achieved in your troffer, linear suspended, high bay, and/or low bay lighting and controls projects. Resources and technical assistance are now available for high-bay, low-bay and suspended linear lighting systems and lighting controls. Learn more....
The ILC’s goal is to document the replacement or new installation of at least 2 million luminaires (troffers, high-bay, low-bay, and suspended linear lighting systems and controls) by April 2018. This goal reflects annual savings of about $34.5 million in electricity costs and nearly 326 million kWh savings across a wide set of our Nation’s buildings annually. Current ILC participants are expected to save over $28 million annually based on their collective planned or completed upgrades to high efficiency luminaire systems.
