Energy Saving Solutions
How lighting controls save energy and money
Lighting can account for up to 20.8% of yearly electricity use in commercial buildings and 10% in a household so energy efficiency is a priority.
From homes to commercial buildings of all sizes, Lutron provides dimmers, occupancy/ vacancy sensors, light control systems, and shading solutions to reduce lighting energy use, optimise system performance, and enhance the visual environment to aid staff productivity.
Lutron products currently save nearly 10 billion kWh of energy a year, reducing emissions of CO2 equivalents by 27 million metric tons, which is like taking 1.5 million cars off the road.
Lutron dimming saves energy without sacrificing style or convenience and gives users easy, complete control through its mobile apps.
Solutions for your Commercial Office spaces
Every commercial space, small or large, can make significant, ongoing energy savings by installing Lutron light controls.
Lighting accounts for 40% of annual electricity use in commercial buildings with even higher usage in healthcare (43%) and hotels (55%).
Easy-to-install wireless control options provide quick retrofit solutions to help buildings meet and exceed building energy regulations requirements such as MEES with savings of up to 60%.
Most commercial spaces are over-lit, which simply wastes expensive energy. But over-lit spaces can also affect productivity. Too much daylight or electric light can make even the most fundamental tasks, such as computer work, uncomfortable and difficult to perform.
Solutions for your Home
With Lutron light controls, you use just the right amount of light, reducing your electricity bills, helping the environment and making your home more beautiful.
There are many ways to save energy without sacrificing style or comfort – from dimmers, occupancy sensors and whole home light control systems, to window blinds/shades/curtains that manage daylight and help control heating and cooling costs.
Lutron light control systems extend energy saving throughout the home and its advanced technology allows you to control the latest energy-efficient light sources, such as LEDs.
Vive is the revolutionary modular wireless lighting control system for new and existing commercial healthcare, hospitality, education, retail buildings that is powerful, simple and scalable.
