Guidelines for Manufacturers and Distributors

The Municipal Solid-State Street Lighting Consortium is intended to be a user's group — focused on the needs of participants making investments in street and area lighting — which provides a resource for objective, unbiased information pertaining to solid-state lighting technology. To minimize the risk of sales pressure and potential conflicts of interest, Consortium membership excludes organizations that sell the products and services considered.

Manufacturers have useful information and experience to offer, however, and are invited to participate in Consortium activities by:

  • Submitting products for demonstrations
  • Becoming part of a manufacturer reference list the Consortium will compile to solicit presentations on selected topics of interest or technical review of documents prior to finalization.
