Lighting Efficiency for Businesses

 

On average, lighting accounts for nearly 40 per cent of a business’s electricity use.

Things you can do to reduce your electricity use:

  • Replace your incandescent bulbs with ENERGY STAR qualified LED lights.
  • Turn off any lights that are unnecessary during work hours. Turn off all lights after hours.
  • Install automatic lighting controls to ensure that the lights are off when not in use.
  • Use task or focused lighting instead of overhead lighting; light only areas that are needed at the time.
  • Increase the output of your lights by regularly removing grease, dust and other dirt from bulbs, fixtures, lenses, lamps and reflective surfaces.
  • Replace incandescent exit lights with ENERGY STAR qualified LED exit lights.
