April 10, 2009, Newsletter Issue #161: Commercial Exterior Lighting

Tip of the Week

If you own a commercial building, you're probably focused on keeping costs as low as possible while keeping the building secure. Here are some tips to get you started:
Use low-power fluorescent or halogen bulbs instead of incandescents, which use more power.Use controls such as dimmers, light sensors and motion detectors to automatically turn off lights that aren't needed.Consider energy-efficient LEDs instead of neon for signs and attention-getting effects.Point all exterior building lighting downward, both for maximum effect for your money and to prevent "light pollution" in the night sky.
