Saving Energy Using Today’s
Fluorescent Technology


Current statistics reveal 65% of the energy in the US is being consumed by the commercial and industrial markets and 22% of this energy is being utilized for lighting alone. Smart business managers have discovered the incredible energy savings of up to 50% by replacing traditional HID high bay fixtures with efficient linear fluorescent T5HO and T8 luninaires. They are the ideal EPAct solution, and have the added benefits of high CRI, illumination uniformity and instant-on starting.

By including occupancy sensor controls, the energy reduction is even greater, especially in areas of a facility that has limited traffic. Unlike HID lamping, adding occupancy sensors to T5HO and T8 systems is relatively easy and inexpensive. However, there is a right way and a wrong way of adding controls to linear fluorescent systems and the majority of installations are done incorrectly.
