Free PG&E Webinar:  Choosing the Right Luminaire, June 4
Event Description

This class addresses how to choose a light fixture once you have a lighting concept in place and know something about the field conditions. Three different lighting representatives will walk through their process for choosing appropriate luminaires for given conditions in residential, commercial or institutional buildings. They will demonstrate their thought processes, explain how to read features and options from product specification sheets, and then demonstrate how to narrow down options based on project constraints.

The objective of this course is that at the conclusion, participants will be able to:

  • Characterize a lighting design goal and determine a product type
  • List the features of a lighting fixture or lighting system to meet specific needs
  • Select from among basic fixture options based on spec sheet information
  • Begin a pre-order fixture type and know where to look for more resources
