A new Lighting Facts label developed by the U.S. Department Of Energy helps buyers understand and select appropriate L.E.D. bulbs.  In addition to the amount of light produced and energy used, the label identifies the CRI for color vibrancy on a scale of 1 (worst) to 100 (best).

The label also identifies the lamp’s color temperature (warm white – cool white – natural light) which, for example, helps explain why a soft yellow wall paint may appear beige when your lights are turned on.
