DLC DLC Premium Definition

Last spring, we announced that Hydro-Québec had made changes to its financial support program. We mentionned that the financial support for lighting was increased when the selected fixtures met the criteria for Premium DLC. However, when the news came out, those criterias were not yet known.

On June 23, the Design Light Consortium finally leaked to the public the criterias defining the DLC Premium. Generally, for most common lighting, the requested minimum efficiency increased from 80-85 lm/watt to 110 lm/watt and it now must have an L90 greater than 36 000 hours.
