Versa Products, Inc. Skylights

Our employees have noticed a more open feeling around them, making the workplace more enjoyable. - John-Paul Nelson, General Manager

Versa Products, Inc. created a Green Manufacturing and Energy Savings Plan that included replacing the current bulbs in their plant and office space with T8 bulbs, but they went a step further to install skylights creating “skylit zones”. Realizing that skylights alone don’t save energy, they had controls built into their electrical lighting to balance the use of un-natural light.

“The skylights have permitted areas of the plant and office that would normally not get natural light to do so, as a result we expect a 20 % savings in our utility bill. But that’s not the only benefit; it helped operating expenses stay in line which kept the pricing of our products stable during this economy and our employees have noticed a more open feeling around them, making the workplace more enjoyable." John-Paul Nelson, General Manager.

When there is sufficient daylight available. The company may be able to save up to 80% of peak lighting demand and up to 50% of lighting energy in the skylit zones.
