Energy Efficient Lighting and Your Company
More and more businesses today are concerned with sustainability and reducing their impact on the environment. One way they achieve this is by implementing energy efficient lighting systems. Not only are these systems better for the environment, but they can positively affect a firm’s bottom line.
What is Energy Efficient Lighting?
Energy efficient lighting aims to keep the overall lighting wattage low while still delivering the necessary amount of illumination to an area. This can be accomplished in a variety of ways: switching from incandescent to LED bulbs, supplying areas of the facility that aren’t used often with motion sensors that turn the lights on when someone enters the room, or maximizing natural light provided by windows and skylights.
Installing energy efficient lighting in your facility can lead to significant savings in energy costs, and lowering overhead expenses without sacrificing lighting quality is always a good thing. In addition, utility companies are often mandated by regulators to encourage consumers to use less energy. One way they carry this off is through incentives, a way of rewarding businesses for using less energy. Many companies fail to leverage these incentives, giving the firms that do an edge. Moreover, this perk helps to increase the return on investment of the new lighting system.
How We Can Help
Energy efficient lighting systems are not one size fits all. A warehouse with high ceilings, tall shelves, and few windows has very different lighting needs from an office building with an open floor plan and plenty of natural light. At Relumination, our seasoned lighting professionals can assess your company’s unique requirements, measure current light levels and identify problem areas and opportunities for improvement, then design the optimal layout for your facility. If you choose to go forward we can install the system and even help with the sometimes confusing paperwork needed to obtain the energy company incentives.
