LED bulbs: Commercial Facility Lighting Money Saving Program - It's time to retrofit to LED! The conservative estimate is 19.5% of your entire electric bill in combined savings
relative to a facility equipped with fluorescent bulbs.
FYI Our cg8 series of T8 4 foot LED tubes use 18 watts per bulb.T8 fluorescent tubes use either 34 watts or 40 watts per bulb
To simplify, let's use 50% for the savings amount.
*** Electricity for lighting typically is 25% - 30% of the total energy consumed by most businesses.
So, relative to fluorescent, the savings are great.50% savings per bulb x 25% of your electricity = 12.5% savings by switching to LEDs. Average minimum savings: 7% Force + 12.5% LEDs = 19.5% *** Average maximum savings: 15% Force + 12.5% LEDs = 27.5% ***
Relative to halogen or halide (and all other bulbs), the savings are even more substantial: Average minimum savings: 7% Force + 17.5% LEDs = 24.5% *** Average maximum savings: 15% Force + 17.5% LEDs = 32.5% ***
Relative to sodium halide high bay lights: Your savings on every $10,000 of electricity you are now consuming could be $3,250.
Your savings on every $100,000 of electricity you are now consuming could be $32,500.
If you have halogen, incandescent, halide, and other types of bulbs, the savings are far greater!
*** According to various sources, electricity for lighting typically is 25% - 30% of the total energy consumed by most businesses. According to FPL, Interior lighting accounts for more than 25 percent of a business' energy consumption. According to Duke Energy, lighting accounts for up to 45 percent of the total energy used in commercial buildings: Lighting Technologies: Making the Right Choice (pdf)
****Save More by using motion sensors on your LEDs, or simply turning banks of LED lights on only when you need them (you can't do that with slow-to-light halides, and fluorescent have their lives reduced by turning on frequently). Again, LEDs are the clear winner!
