Lumens are the most important rating that consumers will need to be aware of. Obviously lighting can be much more complex than what a simple label can accommodate — other considerations include the Color Rending Index (CRI), cold weather performance, dimmablity, light spread, and Lifecycle Cost Analysis (LCA). The new label program will hopefully help wean consumers away from the poor standard that is the incandescent light bulb — a product that is a pitiful 5% efficient!
