The Importance of Conservation (Lutron)

We need energy – and lots of it – to light our homes, schools, offices, hospitals, hotels, and restaurants. Lighting, in fact, consists of nearly 25% of the United States electricity budget, which is approximately $37 billion annually.

Because it consumes such a large portion of the country’s energy, lighting has emerged as a priority for energy efficiency efforts. Such efforts can reduce carbon emissions and save our environment.

One of the best and simplest ways to save energy is to use dimmers and other devices that manage daylight and electrical light, generally referred to as light control. No one knows this better than Lutron, the company that invented the first solid-state dimmer and pioneered the lighting control industry.

Lutron products range from dimmers and wireless occupancy sensors, to automated shade systems and sophisticated whole home and whole building light management systems. You’ll find them in the most architecturally and environmentally advanced buildings from Boston to Beijing.
