Advanced Lighting Control Systems
Advanced lighting control systems have changed lighting and will soon be a common installation in all commercial buildings. Utilities are pushing advanced lighting control systems through their incentives because of the significant energy load reduction they provide.
There’s a reason places like California are requiring advanced lighting control systems in all commercial buildings now. Why? Advanced lighting control systems reduce a companies lighting energy load by up to 50% over an LED fixture and by 93% over older fluorescent tube and HID lighting technologies. To have light fixtures using 100% of their power in unoccupied areas for 50% or more of the day is a significant waste of energy. Advanced lighting control systems allow a company to measure occupancy in the various areas of their building so they can dial down their energy load.
Consider that the average collective occupancy under all of the lights in a manufacturing facility is 35 – 40% and in a warehouse or distribution center is 20 – 25%. Far too many businesses think their lighting load is insignificant when they may have a 300-horsepower energy load burning in their ceiling and there are 750W in one horsepower. It’s clear that there is a significant opportunity for energy waste reduction in all businesses today by choosing advanced lighting control systems.
Advanced lighting control systems have these benefits for your company:
30 - 40% greater energy savings over LED fixture with a sensor
Extends the life of the LED fixture by 30% plus
Allows a company to provide individualized light levels
Dimming -trimming down light levels in areas where not as much light is required
Coordinated control- When an occupancy event occurs, when one designated fixture turns on it triggers other fixtures so they all behave in the same fashion
Demand-response capabilities to obtain better utility rates
Energy efficiency is a method of reducing energy consumption by using less energy to attain the same amount of useful output. For example, an energy-efficient 12-watt LED bulb uses 75-80% less energy than a 60-watt traditional bulb, but provides the same level of light.
Branro provides and installs energy efficiency upgrades to businesses that help them save on energy costs while reducing energy consumption and creating a more comfortable work environment.
Branro installed an energy efficiency system with a building management system and several variable frequency drives on all air handlers and exhaust fans in a 450,000 square ft. manufacturing plant. We saved them over $100 thousand in yearly energy costs and got them over $130 thousand rebate. This automated system increased air quality and air pressure within the entire facility and takes advantage of outdoor air temperatures for air conditioning when applicable.
Free Business Energy Audits
Branro Enterprises, Inc. performs free business energy audits. We provide your business with a proposal/spreadsheet that shows the individual breakdowns of the different type systems that we are proposing to help you save on energy consumption and costs. Within the individual proposed systems, we show the total installed investment, the rebates, energy savings, and maintenance savings. We also offer financing options. By taking advantage of the financing through Michigan Saves at a very low interest rate, the monthly loan payment comes to be less than the savings. Taking advantage of our free business energy audits is a great opportunity. It requires no out of pocket money and gives you net monthly cash flow which leads to a great return on investment. Branro completes all of the necessary paperwork to get you the maximum rebates through our associated companies.
Branro Enterprises holds substantial partnerships with qualified professional contractors to assist in performing the free business energy audits. Our partners provide a professional installed solution and we provide turn-key solutions.
Lighting Retrofits, to LED
Replace your existing fluorescent tubes and lights to LED bulbs to reduce your energy costs and provide consistent and accurate light levels throughout your facility.
At Branro, our approach is different. Our goal is to maximize energy waste reduction, not sell you a 1-for-1 retrofit project.
