Every business should have the goal of improving profitability, and cutting energy consumption is an often overlooked method of doing just that. Over 30 percent of energy used in commercial buildings is wasted. Graybar can help control, monitor, report on, and drastically reduce energy costs.
A lighting retrofit is a simple way to make the lighting in your building more energy efficient. Rising electricity costs, environmental regulations and concerns about employee well-being are all great reasons to look for an alternative energy strategy. Many of our electrical supplies swap out directly with old counterparts, saving time and money on new fixture housings and ceiling repairs. Upgrading the internal fixture components with energy efficient replacements can reduce energy usage by as much as 67 percent. Graybar also takes pride in the way we recycle yesteryear’s lighting materials. All federal environmental regulations are met or exceeded.
New building projects are overseen by our technical specialists to ensure a ground-up way of using energy efficiently. Effective use of daylight sources offsets lighting costs during peak periods. When designed and implemented correctly, daylighting can lower energy costs significantly. Using integrally designed control systems, further limits can be placed on energy consumption. Advanced automated control boards can work with data collected by occupancy sensors and dimmers, both manual and daylight activated, to ensure that lights get turned off when not in use.
With thousands of high-quality electrical supplies available, no task is insurmountable for Graybar Brookings.
