Focus on Energy funded a lighting study through the Environmental & Economic Research and Development program. The research found non-residential space types were at least 20% overlit compared to recommendations supported by the Illumination Engineering Society (IES).
With Comprehensive Lighting Solutions (CLS), building operators can better understand their lighting needs and receive financial incentives for implementing design changes to align light levels with IES recommendations. Whether upgrading fixtures or integrating connected controls, Focus on Energy is here to put you on the path to savings.
Review the CLS Overview [PDF] pages 20 and 28 of the Lighting Catalog for complete offering details, including project and equipment requirements.
