Energy efficient lighting a priority.

Energy-efficient lighting moving to top of customer priority list.

Updated publication Oct 2021

New research could provide insight into utility lighting programs. Research across 2,000 customers of three utilities revealed that annual energy savings from lighting is becoming increasingly important, ranking third for most applications.

Utilities that understand their customers’ preferences can provide the innovation that customers want and need to save energy. The results show that consumers will continue to benefit from lower utility costs via utility programs designed to reduce residential lighting energy use through innovative lighting efficiency programs.


Energy Initiatives  2035


Federal and State agencies are required to place energy efficiency measures in place.

New lighting technology based on LEDs and new “smart driver” embedded controls allows for better flexibility of dimming and motion sensors . With the ability to take lighting to network via web smarts,  any type of programmed response is possible. Color and temperature variation is easy to manage as well as better ability to collect data and make additional adjustments over time. Because IOT and web based technology is low voltage DC, it meshes well with LED drivers that are also DC.

Efficiencies and Incentives are now available to commercial buildings. Technology designed to save costs and that can be better remotely managed  or programmed offers the road to savings. Alternate E Source provides both new lighting technology capable of to be managed in a variety of networked ways.

Benefits of LEDs are well documented and include a longer operational life, higher energy efficiency, and tiny size.  Given their longer life, LEDs lower the access/safety risks and high labor costs of replacing a hard-to-reach lamp. LEDs also costs less to operate. The brightness of the light emitted by a 10W LED lamp is roughly equivalent to a 60W incandescent bulb.

POE Lighting Power Over Ethernet


PoE technology for LED lighting -benefits beyond efficiency, and as LED-based lighting is now a mainstream technology. Replacing incandescent, halogen, and compact fluorescent lights (CFLs) in commercial, industrial, and residential use is a preferred practice.

By utilizing PoE technology wins when you add the advanced benefits of networking the lights using the Ethernet local area network (LAN). This allows for wireless remote logic as well as new network platforms to offer control via cloud. Because of the low voltage DC options, the ability to create new levels of lighting, and lighting display are now possible.
