COMPACT FLUORESCENT LAMPS SAVE ENERGYWith the passing of the amended Energy Independence and securities Act (D.O.E. 2012 law), the phasing out of incandescent and halogen lamps is in full swing.   One of the latest businesses to make this change is Yoder’s Amish Gift Shop in Sarasota, Florida.  When we first approached the Owner Anna, about making this change, she was reluctant to accept the change because of a fear that switching from incandescent or halogen wouldn’t look as good as using a compact fluorescent product in this charming gift store.  However the new law and the energy savings were quite enticing for Anna, and with the Federal Government chipping in on the replacement cost.  Switching was a no brainer, if it would look as good!

Synergy Lighting Offers Top Brands

Synergy Lighting recommended a specific brand of Compact Fluorescent Lamps manufactured by TCP and Halco, which are both major manufacturers of compact fluorescent light bulbs in the U.S. who lamps meet the Energy Star standards for Quality, Life, Color, and Safety.   These low energy, environmentally friendly products were changed out by staff when the Owner Anna was out on business, and was as easy as unscrewing the old bulbs and screwing in the new ones.  

Of particular interest is the phone call Synergy Lighting received after the light bulbs had been changed.  It started with Anna asking when the light bulbs would be delivered.   Just as we predicted, the change was so perfect, that even Anna didn’t realize that she was using fluorescent energy savers until we told her it had already been done!

The only catch is that you have to replace all the bulbs that use these lamps.  Example: If you have 36 recessed can lights, you can not do 20, you have to do all 36 and they have to be used indoors.

Switch and Save

By switching to CFL (Compact Fluorescent Bulbs) businesses can save huge on their electric bill and replacement bulb costs.   Typically these lamps replace a 60, 75 or 100 Watt Incandescent lamp while reducing energy consumption down to only 18 watts.   The CFL bulbs available to qualified business on this special program must use either the 18 or 23 watt CFL with locking base.

What Is A Locking Base?

GU24 LOCKING BASEThe locking base is a very simple device that ensures the business owner and the Department of Energy that once you begin using the CFL bulb, that an employee will not accidentally insert the wrong bulb into the socket thus defeating the concept of energy savings.   Additionally this lowers your replacement cost of replacement light bulbs in the future.  For installation just simply screw the base into the lamp socket and it stays there.  The posts on the base of the bulb simply plug and turn into the base and lock tight until time for replacement.

How Much Will I Save?

Well, alone on the price of the initial light bulbs, you are saving big because they are FREE of charge.  The socket adapters are required and cost $ .89 cents each.  Energy savings for a business operating 12 hours per day is $34.95 per bulb per year.

Full Spectrum High Bay Lighting

21/05/10 | Copyright Synergy Lighting USA | Call us today for sales and pricing information: Toll Free: 1-877-220-5483

Traditionally, fluorescent lighting has been used at fixture mounting heights of <15 ft., and HID lighting was preferred in spaces with higher mounting heights.   In spaces where color quality of the light is important, metal halide (MH) was generally the preferred light source.

In recent years, manufacturers have begun offering fluorescent fixtures designed to replace MH fixtures in low-bay and even high-bay applications. The fixtures house two, three, four, six or eight T8 or T5HO lamps to provide various levels of light output.  Fluorescent lighting offers many advantages over MH lighting in high/low-bay applications.

Benefits of Fluorescent High Bay LightingMetal Halide to Fluorescent High Bays

  • Instant On/Off of the fixtures (No Warm Up Time)
  • Increased visual acuity for performing detailed tasks
  • Higher color correction values when using 800 series 87 CRI
  • Reduction of shadowing in working areas
  • Energy savings of up to 50%
  • Reduced heat output of the lamp and ballasts
  • 60% reduction in maintenance costs

To great reduce energy costs and prolong the life of the fluorescent fixtures, many companies chose to have chosen dimming ballasts or have occupancy sensors installed on these fixtures.  The use of occupancy sensor depends on the working environment.  If particular areas of an industrial facility or warehouse are seldom used, the energy saving potential is greater.   For areas where the space is occupied greater that 60% of the day, occupancy sensors would not be a solid choice.  

T8 Vs. T5HO:

Regarding fluorescent, the choice is T8 or T5HO. Lighting professionals may hear that T8 fixtures are better at fixture heights <20 ft., T5HO at >20 ft., and either T8 or T5HO at 18-25 ft. mounting heights. However, while T5HO may produce enormous light at lower mounting heights, both T8 and T5HO can be used in high- and low-bay applications.

Currently most Power Companies and select fixtures manufacturers offer great Rebates and Incentives to aid in the cost of retrofitting from HID to Fluorescent High Bays.    When comparing the energy savings, cost of maintenance and labor, the T8 & T5 Fluorescent high bays almost always come out to be a phenomenal savings with the most benefits!

FPL rebates for lighting

20/05/10 | Copyright Synergy Lighting USA | Call us today for sales and pricing information: Toll Free: 1-877-220-5483

 

On average, interior lighting accounts for more than 25 percent of a business’s energy consumption according to Florida Power & Light. In addition many customers experience an additional 30 percent of their air conditioning expense, just to cool the heat produced by the lighting.

Synergy Lighting is an FPL Participating Independent Contractor offering FPL rebates to businesses who change to qualifying energy efficient lighting.  This is an exciting new program offered based upon the new 2012 Department of Energy Rule that was adopted by the United States Congress.   The D.O.E. has established guidelines through the Consortium for Energy Efficiency.   CEE is a consortium of efficiency program administrators from across the U.S. and Canada who work together on common approaches to advancing efficiency.

In 2010, CEE has developed a standard of rating products based on specific energy efficiency measurements.  FPL has adopted the CEE standard and is offering a phenominal rebate of $2.00 per lamp for 4′ T8 CEE approved bulbs and ballasts.

What does this mean for you?

 By retrofitting your existing T12 or T8 Fixtures to CEE Rated High Efficient Bulbs and Ballasts, you may qualify for the FPL Rebate Incentive of up to $10.00 per fixture.   That is 25% of the total cost of a retrofit, allowing the retrofit in most cases to yield a 12 month ROI.  In addition to the rebate, you will benefit by an estimated energy savings of $34.00 per fixture per year, and enjoy a better quality of light.

How do I qualify for the FPL Rebate Incentive?
