These days, not attempting to save energy or “go green” is quite the faux-pas. So you request that your employees recycle their paper waste and you purchase ceramic coffee mugs instead of Styrofoam cups. But how else can your company cut down on energy? Evaluate your lighting situation.
LED lighting fixtures can save up to 85 percent of the electricity used by incandescent bulbs. Most of the energy emitted from incandescent bulbs is converted to heat instead of light; that’s why if you touch an incandescent bulb after it’s been turned on you will burn yourself. LED lighting also lasts up to 50 times longer than incandescent lighting.
LED lighting can save up to 50 percent of the energy used by CFLs and between 20 to 30 percent of the energy used by fluorescent tube lighting because LEDs don’t contain hazardous materials, such as mercury, like fluorescent tubes and CFLs do. LED lighting also uses solid-state technology, which allows effective dimming and eliminates flickering, unlike most fluorescent lights that cannot be dimmed and often flicker.
Where can you implement LED lighting? Practically everywhere! Options include: post-top lights, area lights, roadway lights, flood lights, and garage lights among others.
To top it all off, LED lighting can be part of your Energy Conservation Program with Bruner, and supply only a small portion of your every savings. Contact us today to see how LED lighting and other conservation measures can cut down your utility bills.
