One of our key goals is to help America’s commercial facility managers to reduce their overall energy usage and ultimately save considerable amounts of money. Roughly 30 percent of energy in commercial buildings is used inefficiently. Graybar can help you to control, monitor, report on and drastically reduce the monthly energy cost of running your facility. With access to thousands of high-quality electrical supplies made by leading manufacturers like General Electric, Philips, and Lutron, our technical specialists can assist you in designing a comprehensive plan for your existing buildings as well as any new projects in the future.
Lighting accounts for over 20 percent of energy used in commercial buildings. In as little as two years, most commercial facility 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. Most of our commercial and industrial lighting supplies will install directly into the existing fixture housings, reducing costs of time-consuming ceiling and wall repairs and rewiring.
Our technical specialists are also adept at working energy efficient design features into new constructs. Using an advanced network of occupancy sensors, dimmers, time scheduling, and intelligent control boards, your new buildings can start life as an “intelligent” structure.
Graybar Chicago Downtown is the commercial and industrial lighting supplier that has your needs in mind.
