In a modern world with rising electricity costs, environmental concerns and the need for increased productivity, commercial operators everywhere are looking to streamline their energy consumption. Graybar Tallahassee is one of our more than 260 locations that compose the greater network of Graybar’s commercial and industrial lighting supplier chain. The warehouse is stocked with thousands of high-quality electrical supplies from top-shelf manufacturers like General Electric, Philips, Lutron and Acuity Brands. Graybar employs thousands of dedicated men and women, and is one of the largest employee-owned companies in North America.
Graybar solutions such as lighting not only save on energy consumption but have also been shown to increase employee efficiency and safety, while simultaneously driving down maintenance costs. At the heart of our energy solutions is an “intelligent” infrastructure of lighting, communications, HVAC, and security systems all working together from a centralized control board to improve the overall efficiency of a building. Graybar can help you to design and integrate a building-wide system of control in both your existing structures and your new projects.
In your existing buildings, lighting already accounts for roughly 25 percent of energy consumed. Retrofitting your buildings lighting systems is a highly effective way to cut energy costs. Lighting retrofits also improve the quality of the light produced while emitting less heat. The majority of electrical supplies will swap out directly with the existing fixtures and even use the same housings, negating the need to rewire and hassle with ceiling tiles or wall repair. Upgrading the fixture components with energy efficient replacements can reduce your lighting energy usage by as much as 67 percent, and we will assist in the disposal and recycling of the old fixtures.
When planning and designing a new building there are several things our team can do to make it energy efficient from the start of its life. Effective daylighting uses natural light from skylights and windows to offset electrical loads during daytime. Designed and implemented properly, it can have a drastic effect on the monthly energy bill. Making use of motion controlled occupancy sensors, manual and daylight controlled dimmer switches, and time scheduling; your building won’t be wasting energy by lighting an empty room.
Graybar Tallahassee offers everything needed to complete a lighting project, end-to-end.
