As we move further into the 21st century, rising electricity costs and environmental concerns have commercial facility owners and government agencies looking for comprehensive energy strategies. Graybar has solutions. Founded in 1869, Graybar has become North America’s leading commercial and industrial lighting supplier, specializing in the related supply chain management and distribution of electrical supplies. A Fortune 500 company and one of the largest employee-owned companies in the country, Graybar employs thousands of men and women at more than 260 locations across North America. One such center is Graybar Roanoke.
To answer the demand for energy solutions, Graybar takes the “smart” building to a new level. At the heart of our intelligent buildings is an advanced infrastructure of lighting, communications, HVAC, and security systems working inside of a single IP-enabled network. These solutions not only save on energy costs but have been proven to reduce maintenance costs and improve employee safety and productivity. Over 30 percent of energy used in commercial buildings is done so inefficiently, and we can help you to monitor, report on, control, and ultimately reduce that percentage.
A lighting retrofit is a great way to make your existing building more energy efficient. An example of a retrofit would be the replacement of old lamps and ballasts with much more efficient counterparts. Most electrical supplies will go into the old housings and install in minutes. These upgrades can yield savings near 67 percent and can pay for themselves in as little as two years.
When a new construction project is underway, Graybar can work closely with the lead architects to integrate key features into the design so as to make the new building efficient from birth. Properly implemented daylighting combined with time scheduling and internal sensors and dimmers ensure optimal lighting of your building at all times of the day.
Graybar Roanoke is a perfect example of why Graybar is the industry’s leading commercial and industrial lighting supplier.
