Top Distributed Energy Magazine Recognizes Eneref’s Researches and Reports on the Efficacy and Economic Benefits of Sustainable Lighting Technologies

Lighting can represent as much as 35% of building energy use, according to Randy Dollar, vice president, systems marketing development, for Universal Lighting Technologies, a global leader in ballasts and controls for commercial lighting applications, with headquarters in Nashville, TN. Particularly in today’s economy, companies need to cut costs; however, there are limits where they can capture money without sacrifices. Dollar believes lighting is the “low-hanging fruit” that allows companies to simultaneously maintain desirable levels and save money.

Controllable lighting is one way to save energy. “Historically, companies buy high-efficiency ballasts and more efficient lamps,” says Dollar, “but if you want to save more, you need to get into controllable lighting with a dimming ballast.”
