Lighting control benefits include lowered energy costs, automated control over how and when artificial lighting is used and compliance with new mandates and regulations.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) April 05, 2013
Dimmer switches are what most often come to mind when thinking about lighting control. They’ve been around since electrical lighting started to become common in the late 19th century - however, it wasn't until about 1960 that solid-state technology made them safe and practical for everyday use. But according to the US Department of Energy, there’s still much work to be done here in 2013 where lighting control and the resulting energy reduction is concerned.
Lights eat more than half of the energy used in today’s commercial buildings. When one considers that less than 1% of those buildings are equipped with modern lighting control systems, it’s easy to recognize there is money to be saved and countless other ‘green’ benefits to be realized by installing a lighting control system today.
Broader lighting control benefits include lowered energy costs, automated control over how and when artificial lighting is used and compliance with new mandates and regulations.
To ensure the latest lighting control technologies are installed correctly, a new cutting-edge lighting control training is being carried out by a partnership between NECA and the IBEW, as well as input from Lutron and NYSERDA (New York State Energy Research Development Authority).
This training, along with the value a customer realizes through an efficient new control system, is the subject of the latest mini-documentary from ElectricTV.net, and can also be found on ElectricTV’s YouTube Channel, available at http://www.youtube.com/electrictvonline.
