Graybar, established in 1869, has become known as one of America’s leading commercial and industrial lighting suppliers. We distribute thousands of high-quality electrical supplies, communications and data networking products from hundreds of leading manufacturers such as General Electric, Acuity Brands, Lutron, and many more. Maintaining the related supply chain and inventory management logistics of our customers is our specialty. Our Mankato branch is a prime example of our business practice.
With more than 30 percent of the annual $202.3 billion in energy costs being used inefficiently, cutting energy bills is crucial for every commercial operator. Eliminating energy expenditures has never been easier with Graybar’s commercial and industrial lighting consultants helping every step of the way. Using a combination of occupancy sensors, dimmers, and time scheduling, our lighting control systems provide the ultimate in energy cost control.
The control systems can be stand-alone or fully integrated into a building-wide automation system. With a full digital control, commands can be issued to specific sections of a facility. Such control systems can also be automated and can assist in load-shedding practices which drive down energy usage during peak demand periods.
Motion and sound sensors can detect the occupancy of rooms and hallways, automatically dimming or turning off lights when no one is present. This results in up to 45 percent savings in energy costs. Used in conjunction with manual dimmer switches, light sources use even less energy, saving an additional 4-9 percent.
When designed and implemented correctly into the design of new projects, natural daylight sources can drastically reduce peak time usage costs during the day. In conjunction with advanced automated control boards, occupancy sensors, and both manual and daylight dimmer switches, these design features stand to reduce your energy use by as much as 67 percent.
Graybar Mankato electrical supply covers all the needs of our customers, and is part of the larger network of the premier commercial lighting supplier in North America.
