Start with good lighting
Tri-State understands good lighting practice and applies it to your situation
with an Engineered Approach. Our Elumenists follow
a thorough methodology to evaluate your current lighting system for energy
consumption, operating costs and visual effectiveness. We then make recommendations
based on measured, recorded data, accepted standards of lighting practice
and first-hand experience, to optimize your use and cost of lighting throughout
Don't look up…yet
Many building owners and contractors make the classic mistake
of approaching lighting upgrades by starting at the ceiling.
For example, they might look up and see a common fixture, the
four-lamp 2'x4' fluorescent troffer found
in many buildings. Originally, that fixture contained four
T12 lamps and two magnetic ballasts. Our building owner decides
to retrofit it with a single electronic ballast and four high-efficiency
T8 lamps. The result is more light and thirty percent
savings. Not bad, except a lot of energy and money was left
on the table. Why? Because this same fixture is found in offices,
corridors, conference rooms and restrooms; yet each of these
spaces has different lighting requirements!
Our Elumenists take a different approach. First they identify
the tasks performed in a space. Then they measure existing lighting
levels and evaluate the current lighting system for efficiency,
visual comfort, maintainability, etc. Back in our Elumenation
Lab, we develop cost-effective upgrades that satisfy your people's
lighting requirements and deliver the financial results you need.
Maybe the four-lamp fixture in our example only gets a three-lamp
retrofit; or just two lamps and a reflector.
Or any of forty other possibilities that help us fine-tune energy
consumption and light output to the specific requirements of
each different room and space in your building.
One size does not fit all
Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, Tri-State Light & Energy
provides custom solutions based on specific needs in your facility.
Different areas of your facility require different amounts of
light for optimal performance of your employees. By taking a
unique, engineered approach, we find the delicate balance between
energy savings and your lighting requirements to offer you the
most effective results for your facility.
