Carrying the well-established name of Graybar, our East Peoria location is a full-service branch, with a counter, will call pickup and stocked inventory in an on-site warehouse. Graybar East Peoria is the areas’ leading commercial and industrial lighting supplier and logistics management firm.
Founded in 1869, Graybar has since formed into one of the largest employee-owned companies in the U.S., with thousands of men and women operating our more than 250 North American locations. We have the power and stability of a large company and the integrity of a small town shop. As an industry leader, we stock thousands of high-quality electrical supplies from hundreds of top-line manufacturers, including General Electric, Philips, Acuity Brands, Lutron, and many more.
Over 30 percent of energy consumed in U.S. commercial buildings is used inefficiently. Graybar’s products and logistics can help commercial building managers to control, monitor, report on, and reduce overall energy costs. The vast majority of our customers see up to a 45 percent return on investment in as little as two years. Our energy solutions not only save on energy consumption, but have been shown to reduce maintenance costs and improve productivity and safety.
Retrofitting an existing building is a simple and effective way to make your lighting more energy efficient. Lighting retrofits also result in lower heat envelopes, using less energy in HVAC run times. Swapping out lamps and ballasts can be done in minutes, and retrofit fixtures can install directly into the existing fixture housings, reducing turnaround time and saving cost on unseemly ceiling tile repairs. Many of the electrical supplies we stock can be installed with little hassle.
In both old buildings and new constructs, adding or upgrading lighting controls greatly improves the efficiency of lighting systems. When lighting alone accounts for more than 20 percent of energy costs, every commercial business stands to benefit from these upgrades. In conjunction with advanced control boards (some automated and wireless even), occupancy sensors and dimmer switches greatly reduce electricity usage during peak draw times. Coupled with natural daylight sources designed into the building and time scheduling, these solutions can reduce energy costs by as much as 67 percent.
With so many solutions to offer, Graybar East Peoria is the most comprehensive commercial and industrial lighting supplier there is.
