The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has determined that lighting consumes approximately 35 percent of the electricity used in commercial buildings and 20 percent of the electricity that is consumed in residences.
FOR SAVING ENERGY
In specifying lighting systems, the goals should be to:
- Reduce the use of non-renewable resources
- Minimize air, water, and soil pollution
- Eliminate toxic substances
- Recycle lamps
- Avoid excess lighting
As a saving measure, ELS lighting offers light design analysis to determine the right quantity for the best quality.
