LED (light emitting diode) technology is changing the lighting industry. LED lights help companies and individuals save considerable amounts of money on their energy bill. USA TODAY recently listed calculations that, over a 10-year period, a single LED bulb costs $17.25 to operate compared to an incandescent bulb which costs $78.80 over the same period. But when it comes to making your home or commercial space even more efficient, you don’t have to stop there. Pairing LED lights with other lighting technologies can multiply the energy-saving benefits of your lighting system, allowing you to significantly cut your energy costs.
Daylight Harvesting is one of the most exciting and innovative fields in sustainable lighting design for buildings. If you’re not familiar with the term and are interested in saving energy in your business, then it would benefit you to get acquainted and start incorporating daylight harvesting into your lighting system in whatever ways you can.
