By Theresa Einarsen • Jun 26th 2023

In today's competitive business landscape, finding ways to cut costs and improve energy efficiency is crucial. Energy expenses can significantly impact the bottom line, but with the right strategies, you can unlock the secret to generating energy savings for your business. In this blog post, we will explore five innovative ideas that can help you save more money energy-wise and create a greener, more sustainable future.

  1. Ballast Compatible LED Bulbs
    Upgrading to LED can be easier than you think and is an effective way to achieve significant energy savings. These bulbs can result in energy savings of up to 50%-90% or more. The installation process is easy, as they can be directly installed into existing fixtures without the need for any modifications. By leveraging ballast compatible LED bulbs, businesses can enjoy the benefits of energy efficiency, reduced maintenance, and long-term cost savings. Plus, the installation process is quick, allowing you to upgrade your lighting system in a matter of hours instead of days or weeks.

  2. Ballast Bypass LED Bulbs
    Ballast bypass LED bulbs are an excellent solution for businesses looking to further increase energy efficiency and reduce maintenance costs. By eliminating fixture ballasts altogether, these bulbs avoid unnecessary energy consumption associated with ballasts. More importantly, by bypassing the ballasts, you remove any future maintenance cost from your operating budget. Check out our catalog of LED bulbs here to learn more.

  3. Network Controls & Scheduling
    Implementing network controls in your lighting system can offer additional energy savings and enhanced control over your lighting environment. With network controls, you can schedule lighting to turn on or off automatically based on occupancy or specific timeframes. This ensures that lights are only active when and where they are needed, reducing unnecessary energy consumption. Furthermore, dimming controls allow you to adjust the intensity of light output, providing the right amount of light for different areas of your facility. This level of control not only saves energy but also improves the overall comfort and productivity of your workspace. By integrating Bluetooth-enabled lighting solutions, you can have even more flexibility and convenience in managing your energy usage. You can easily program lighting settings, such as on/off schedules and dimming levels all from a centralized control system or your mobile device. This smart lighting solution allows for seamless energy management and customization, enabling you to optimize your energy savings effortlessly.

  4. Occupancy Sensors
    Occupancy sensors are a simple yet effective solution for reducing energy waste in areas with fluctuating occupancy levels. These sensors detect motion and presence, automatically turning lights on when someone enters a room or a warehouse aisle and turning them off when the area is unoccupied. By ensuring that lights are only active when necessary, occupancy sensors can significantly reduce energy consumption and lower utility costs all while drastically extending the life of the LED itself. They are particularly useful in areas such as conference rooms, restrooms, and storage spaces where people come and go infrequently.

  5. Daylight Harvesting
    Leveraging natural light through daylight harvesting can lead to substantial energy savings. By strategically placing sensors and controls, the lighting system can automatically adjust the artificial light levels based on the amount of natural light available.



In this blog post, we explored five innovative ideas to unlock the secret of generating energy savings for your business. By incorporating ballast bypass and ballast compatible LED bulbs, network controls, Bluetooth scheduling, occupancy sensors, and daylight harvesting, you can significantly reduce energy consumption and improve your business's sustainability.

Ballast bypass LED bulbs eliminate unnecessary energy consumption by bypassing fixture ballasts, while ballast compatible LED bulbs provide easy installation and substantial energy savings compared to traditional bulbs. Network controls and Bluetooth scheduling offer enhanced lighting control, allowing you to schedule lighting based on occupancy and more. Occupancy sensors ensure lights are only active when necessary, reducing energy waste. Daylight harvesting leverages natural light to minimize reliance on artificial lighting. By implementing these energy-saving ideas, you can experience cost savings, improved energy efficiency, reduced maintenance, and a positive environmental impact.
