The DOE Report on Solid State Lighting includes testing Indepdendence LED Tubes along with other Tubes from LED Manufacturers
The DOE Report on Solid State Lighting included one of the leading American LED Lighting Manufacturers that produced top tier lumens/watt among many imported LED Manufacturers.

According to the US Department of Energy (DOE) Solid-state lighting (SSL) technology has the potential to reduce U.S. lighting energy usage by nearly one half and contribute significantly to our nation’s climate change solutions. The U.S. Department of Energy acts as a catalyst to drive R&D breakthroughs in efficiency and performance, and to equip buyers to successfully apply SSL lighting.
CALiPER testing and analysis, conducted by accredited test labs using industry-standard test procedures, helped to discourage low-quality products and inflated manufacturer claims. As a result, there are far fewer exaggerated performance claims today, and product quality has vastly improved. Still, technological issues with today’s SSL products continue to hamper widespread adoption, and CALiPER investigations reveal issues with reliability, color quality and stability, dimming, flicker, and glare. The program has evolved right along with the SSL market and expanded its focus to investigate specific product types and scenarios. It remains a useful tool for manufacturers seeking to improve their products, and for buyers seeking to make informed decisions.
Note: The CALiPER (Commercially Available LED Product Evaluation and Reporting) program was launched by DOE in 2006 to address a need for unbiased, trusted product performance information in the early years of SSL.
CALiPER test results and analysis are used to support the development of standards and test procedures for SSL – especially those related to complex areas such as flicker, dimming, power quality, and long-term performance. In addition, DOE hosts annual CALiPER roundtables – attended by representatives from industry, independent test laboratories, and key standards-setting groups – to solicit input on test results and procedures and additional testing needs for SSL.
