Perhaps our most important mission is to bring energy-efficient solutions to the commercial world, saving both time and money for you, and helping to ease the burden on our environment. Graybar solutions and upgrades not only save on energy consumption but have been shown to reduce the cost of maintenance and improve employee productivity and safety. Over 30 percent of energy used in commercial buildings today is effectively wasted, and every commercial operator stands to benefit from our comprehensive solutions. The upgrades can even pay for themselves plus more in as little as two years.
Lighting accounts for more than 25 percent of the energy used in most commercial buildings today. A lighting retrofit is a quick and effective way to cut the energy cost of lighting your existing buildings. Most electrical supplies will install directly into the old fixture housings, minimizing the time and money spent on installation and ceiling repairs. Lighting retrofits will not only boost efficiency, but also improve the quality of light and result in less ambient heat.
When planning and designing a new building there are several things you can do to make it energy efficient from the start. Effective daylighting uses natural light from skylights and windows to offset electrical loads during daytime. Designed and implemented properly, it can have a drastic effect on the monthly energy bill. Making use of motion controlled occupancy sensors, manual and daylight controlled dimmer switches, and time scheduling, your building won’t be wasting energy by lighting an empty room.
Graybar Rutland is the one-stop commercial and industrial lighting supplier for end-to-end solutions in lighting, high-end electrical supplies, and project consulting.
