Lighting Understanding for a More Efficient Nation


LUMEN is an ad hoc consortium of organizations and professionals united to facilitate consumer educated energy-efficient lighting decisions.

LUMEN members can answer questions about the lighting transition, including clarifications about:

  • Energy-efficient lighting choices
  • How you can best choose a bulb
  • What lumens are and how they are different than watts
  • What you can expect to see on the new labels
  • What to expect from new lighting aesthetics
  • How your pocketbook is impacted by the transition
