Topics varied from NEEP’s Commercial Advanced Lighting Controls (CALC) initiative, to midstream market efforts, to marketing advanced lighting programs and more. Once again, this proved an excellent forum for information sharing across utility boundaries.lumen

Midwest LUMEN Members were joined by more than 30 additional lighting stakeholders and MEEA staff for the January 27 Advanced Lighting Reception where MEEA officially released the 2015 edition of the Midwest Advanced Lighting Solutions Guide, featuring solutions from MEEA members Ecova and TCP Lighting.
