Lighting Updates Save Energy and Dollars
Did you know that, according to a study by Pikes Research, an energy-saving lighting update to your building can provide energy savings from 10% to more than 50%?
That’s right! That’s in part because lighting accounts for more than 40% of the commercial sector’s electricity consumption, according to the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy. So if you’re looking to save some green, consider going green by retrofitting your building with a lighting update or an addition of new technology to old equipment.
The first step to retrofitting you property and improving its efficiency is to analyze your building’s current performance to get a benchmark. Using a power quality meter, technicians can check your electrical system to ensure all essential functions and capabilities are operating to standard, as well as determine if existing equipment is operating as efficiently as possible. With the ability to record the power data at your facility, technicians can then identify and record your building’s surges, sags, voltage and amperage usage, pinpointing the potential problem to a specific piece of equipment.
By identifying the major sources of inefficiencies and energy consumption in the building, you can then prioritize and allocate money accordingly for an energy retrofit, which might include lighting upgrades, control system improvements and other upgrades.
