Our primary mission at Graybar is to keep the energy footprint of commercial buildings as small as absolutely possible. More than 30 percent of energy used in commercial buildings is wasted needlessly. Graybar can help you monitor, control, report on, and greatly reduce that percentage. Our solutions will not only save on energy consumption, but have also been shown to decrease maintenance costs while increasing employee productivity and safety. These solutions will also get you closer to your long term sustainability goals like reducing overall energy consumption by 20 percent by the year 2020 as mandated by the federal government.
One way to reduce the energy envelope of your existing buildings is to retrofit the lighting systems. Simply swapping out lamps and ballasts can greatly improve lighting quality and increase efficiency. Over the course of two short years, most of our customers see a return on investment of up to 45 percent. Many electrical supplies are capable of installing directly into existing housings.
By properly implementing natural daylighting and internal sensors and time scheduling into new constructs, your building is sure to be optimally lit at all times of day and at a minimum energy cost.
