How can I implement a 50% reduction in lighting energy costs?
The benefits of renovating old lighting systems, especially fluorescent and metal halide, are clear from both a light output standpoint and replacement lifecycle cost. LED’s are a great new way to substitute common lighting systems, but the elements of the LED itself, its structure, its color, and especially the drivers, determine both the light output and the heat output.
Most LED systems have either remote drivers, or built‑in drivers, depending on the application. Either way is acceptable; however, benefits for dimming and if environmental concerns are of value, then remote drivers are usually the way to go.
