Lumens - the new way to shop for light

New federal lighting regs to help consumers make ‘green’ lighting choices Starting Jan. 1, 2012, new federal regulations will require the most common light bulbs to be more energy efficient. Specifically, bulbs must produce the same amount of lumens (light output) for less wattage (energy consumption). All packages of light bulbs sold in stores after the New Year will carry a new Lighting Facts label – modeled after the “Nutrition Facts” labels on food packages –  to help consumers compare the brightness and estimated energy costs of various types of light bulbs. The new label will give consumers information about […]

Energy Efficient Lighting Basics

The Basics of Energy Efficient Lighting

Modern energy efficient lighting technology is rapidly evolving and is creating opportunities for U.S. businesses and consumers alike to save money and the environment. Lighting represents about 20% of all electricity use in the United States with the cost to businesses and consumers topping $50 billion a year, according to the Department of Energy (DOE). That’s the same dollar amount the federal agency estimates is being wasted annually by the owners of 2.8 million U.S. commercial, industrial and institutional buildings that rely on outdated lighting systems. A company maintaining a standard 50,000-square-foot commercial building can spend up to $45,000 annually […]
