Look How Drastically Intelligent LEDs Can Cut Energy ConsumptionGreenTech Efficiency, November 22, 2013
PG&E, California’s largest utility, wanted to know how much energy controllable LEDs could save its industrial customers.
It recently found its answer: a lot.
Earlier this year, the utility tested the performance of a networked LED system at a 44,800-square-foot Ace Hardware distribution warehouse in California. The system was installed and controlled by Digital Lumens, a Boston-based company with more than 500 projects deployed in the commercial and industrial sector.
Digital Lumens says its system, which combines monitoring software, building controls and LED fixtures, can save customers up to 90 percent on lighting costs.
