Lutron Electronics Co., Inc. has announced the formation of a new Energy Solutions business unit that will operate in both the public and private sectors to help to accelerate and maximize the use of the company’s existing technologies in a broad range of energy saving products.
Encelium Technologies of Teaneck, N.J., a leading international manufacturer and supplier of addressable lighting controls for commercial buildings, has appointed New York-based International Lights, Inc. as its exclusive lighting sales agency in Manhattan. Rapidly expanding, Encelium recently opened an office in New York City as part of its strategic expansion.
WattStopper has launched the RT-200 Astronomical Time Switch, augmenting the company’s already extensive line of energy-efficient residential lighting controls. The new user-programmable time switch turns lights, or other electrical loads, on and off relative to dusk or dawn, or at selected times of day, providing energy savings and security both inside and outside the home. It is compliant with the requirements of California’s Title 24-2008 for outdoor lighting control.
Bank of America Plaza is one of the most prestigious office properties in Los Angeles. Completed in 1974, it was the first high-rise structure to tower over the downtown cityscape. Today, it is a model of energy efficiency, featuring cutting-edge technologies that minimize power consumption and utility bills. Brookfield Properties has significantly invested in Bank of America Plaza modernization over the past three years. Brookfield had plans to upgrade the lighting equipment in the skyscraper’s parking garage and was exploring options when California Retrofit, Inc. (CRI), introduced them to the latest breakthrough in ballast technology. Unveiled in 2008 by Universal Lighting Technologies, DEMANDflex™ ballasts feature an adjustable ballast factor so that installers can “tune” ballasts to the exact power level required for the customer environment. Using a temporary tuning tool, the installer sets a maximum power level for each circuit of ballasts, which can be as low as 50 percent of full power. This eliminates the common problem of over lighting an area and wasting energy.
WattStopper has participated in a ground-breaking demonstration of solid-state lighting (SSL) technology combined with occupancy sensors in grocery store freezer cases. The project was supported under the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Solid-State Lighting GATEWAY Technology Demonstration Program. WattStopper contributed FS-705 Wide Angle PIR occupancy sensors to the project.
