Cutting energy costs is essential to every commercial building manager in today’s economy. Over 30 percent of energy in commercial buildings is wasted. By retrofitting existing buildings and planning new ones to be more efficient from the start, businesses can see a return on investment of up to 45 percent. Additional savings can be seen by using modern lighting control systems, such as intelligent control boards, occupancy sensors, manual and daylight activated dimmer switches, natural daylight sources, and time scheduling.
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 effective way to reduce lighting costs. Most electrical supplies will install directly into the existing fixture housings, reducing costs of time-consuming ceiling and wall repairs and rewiring.
The environment also benefits greatly from the efficiency of your commercial structures. The electrical supplies and lighting fixtures of the past 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 Freeport adheres strictly to federal guidelines to reduce the liability to your business, and to reduce the dangers to our environment.
The commercial and industrial lighting supplier with the most comprehensive plan will save the customer the most money. Graybar’s Freeport electrical supply offers everything that a commercial, industrial or government customer needs to cut the cost of lighting.
