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. These 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.
A lighting retrofit is a simple yet highly effective way to make your building’s lighting energy efficient. Swapping out lamps and ballasts with newer, more efficient counterparts will both increase energy efficiency and improve the quality of the light produced. The majority of electrical supplies will install directly into the old fixture housings, further reducing time and money spent repairing and re-wiring.
Modern daylighting, when implemented properly, will drastically reduce the cost of lighting during the day. Internal light and motion sensors will cooperate with intelligent control boards to further optimize the lighting situation inside your building.
Graybar Cedar Rapids is the one-stop commercial and industrial lighting supplier for end-to-end solutions in lighting, high-end electrical supplies and project consulting.
