What is a lighting facts label?

To help consumers understand light bulb efficiency, the Energy Independence and Security Act legislation directed the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to change its current labeling requirements for all medium based general service LED bulbs. The Lighting Facts label helps consumers base their purchase decision on the brightness (lumens) of the bulb and cost of operation, instead of wattage. The label is an industry tool to help buyers evaluate product performance against manufacturer claims.
