Dr. Ian Rowbottom of Lutron Electronics authored a whitepaper on the Lutron website titled, “Building Dimmers Vs. Building Power Plants.” Using simple math, he makes a case that while it costs $1.40-$7.75 to build a watt of electric generating capacity, it costs only about $0.35 to remove a watt with a dimmer. He writes, “At […]
This short video, produced by the Lighting Controls Association at the 2012 LIGHTFAIR event, introduces the building industry to Lutron’s embedded EcoSystem technology.
Lutron Electronics recently announced that it has teamed up with Mermet, a manufacturer of solar screen fabrics, to introduce Basketweave E Screen with KOOLBLACK™ Technology. Conventional dark-colored shade fabrics absorb energy and increase the solar heat gain in the space, wasting energy and creating an uncomfortable environment. This limits the use of dark screen fabrics […]
Lutron Electronics recently announced its new Sensor Layout and Tuning Service to assure that wired or wireless Lutron daylight sensors and occupancy sensors help projects achieve their energy-savings goals. Installing occupancy sensors and daylight sensors can be an inexact science, and sensor fine-tuning is best performed after the space is fully occupied, furniture is in […]
CLTC recently completed a case study of an integrated classroom lighting system installed at Laney College in Oakland. The project was conducted in partnership with Lutron Electronics, Inc. and Peralta Community College District’s Capital Outlay Planning and Construction.
