Following over a decade of constant evolution and innovation, solid-state lighting has become the de facto lighting technology for high-performance, low-energy consumption, infinitely controllable lighting solutions. The advanced lighting technologies of today and tomorrow connect not only systems within a building, but also buildings to each other; and they promise not only quality lighting and lower energy bills, but also productivity, comfort, health benefits, and valuable data through a network of sensors and receptors. As the conversation moves away from energy savings and more towards the value of non-energy functionality, what is the impact on the roles of the utility and the utility rebate?
