Ever increasing electricity costs and new environmental regulations have everyone scrambling to find an energy strategy that will not only save money, but will add business value looking into the future. With over 30 percent of energy consumed in commercial buildings used inefficiently, every commercial operator stands to benefit from our comprehensive solutions. Integrating Graybar solutions can help you to attain your long-term sustainability goals like reducing overall energy usage by 20 percent by the year 2020 as required by the U.S. Government. A great way to reduce the energy footprint of your existing buildings is to retrofit the lighting systems. Simply swapping out old lamps and ballasts for newer counterparts will improve the quality of light produced and reduce energy costs in one. Many of our electrical supplies will install directly into the fixture housings previously occupied by the outdated technology. These upgrades can reduce energy consumption by as much as 67 percent, and will pay for themselves in as little as two years. When planning new projects to be built, our technical specialsts can help integrate design features that will bring your new building into the space-age. Modern daylighting, when implemented properly, will drastically reduce the cost of lighting during the day. Internal light and motion sensors will cooperate with intelligent control boards to further optimize the lighting situation inside your building. Graybar Winston-Salem can supply and advise any and all of your current and future lighting projects.
