Finding the Best Solution for Your Business
Looking for environmentally-friendly energy solutions to save money?
Lighting technology is constantly evolving, and Energy Resources stays current with the newest, most reliable energy efficient lighting solutions. Energy Resources can upgrade your interior and exterior lighting systems with cost-effective LED solutions. Along with delivering a quick return on investment through energy savings, LED technology provides significant maintenance savings that can be easily quantified.
Energy Resources works with all the major manufacturers to deliver the appropriate solution for each specific requirement. All LED products are Design Lights Consortium approved to ensure only the highest quality and most reliable products are utilized. Some of the major benefits of LED lighting include:
LEDs consume very low amounts of power. LED lighting retrofit projects typically result in a 60-75% improvement in the overall energy efficiency of the facility’s lighting.
The average LED lasts 50,000 to 100,000 operating hours or more. That is 2-4 times as long as most fluorescent, metal halide, and sodium vapor lights. It is more than 40 times as long as the average incandescent bulb.
Less frequent replacement means lower maintenance costs. Avoided costs for replacement bulbs and ballasts, labor, and equipment costs such as lifts, can be of significant benefit.
Most LEDs can operate at a virtually any percentage of their rated power (0 to 100%).
LEDs turn on and off instantaneously. There is no warm-up period like in the case of HID lamps. Additionally, frequent switching does not cause degradation in the device.
LEDs are solid state lights (SSLs). This means that the traditional glass bulb surrounding the light is unnecessary, eliminating the possibility of shattering. They are also extremely durable and suitable for harsh environments.
Hot or Cold
LEDs work well in a wide range of operating temperatures without significant degradation. Traditional lighting sources such as Fluorescent lighting may be significantly affected by cold ambient temperatures.
LEDs are available in a wide range of correlated color temperature (CCT) values. They can be purchased with a “warm” yellowish glow, a “cool” white light or a variety of other options.
LEDs have very high color rendering index (CRI) ratings resulting in true color representation. The high CRI of LEDs compared to fluorescent and sodium vapor lights is a huge benefit for retail display applications and for security cameras in parking garages.
LEDs do not have the environmental issues common to traditional lighting solutions like fluorescent or mercury vapor lights. Traditional solutions contain mercury and thus require special handling at the end of the product’s useful lifespan, which LEDs do not.
“I never dreamed our company would be able to complete a project this size so quickly with minimal out-of-pocket. Eversource and Energy Resources helped make the process seamless with no disruption to our day-to-day tasks and identified great equipment and solutions that are perfect for our business.”
