Streamlining energy usage in commercial buildings is one of our key missions. Over 30 percent of energy used is done so inefficiently. Lighting upgrades can pay for themselves in as little as two years, and can even present a return on investment of up to 45 percent. Integrating Graybar solutions can help you reach your long term sustainability goals like reducing 20 percent of your energy usage by 2020 as mandated by the federal government.
Lighting accounts for over 20 percent of energy used in commercial buildings. In as little as two years, most commercial building managers see a return on investment from a retrofit of their existing buildings. Swapping out old lamps and ballasts, installing new LED fixtures, and upgrading lighting controls is a simple yet extremely effective way to reduce lighting costs. Making use of intelligent control boards, occupancy sensors, manual and daylight-activated dimmer switches, natural daylight sources, and time scheduling, we can develop real solutions to help you save energy, time, and money.
The environment also benefits greatly from the efficiency of your commercial structures. The electrical supplies and lighting fixtures of yesteryear contain toxic substances, such as mercury. While modern solutions are far more efficient and far less hazardous, the old materials need to be disposed of properly. Graybar Champaign adheres strictly to federal guidelines to reduce the liability to your business and to reduce the dangers to our environment.
As the premier commercial and industrial lighting supplier in North America, Graybar Champaign offers real solutions for today’s energy usage problems.
