Meeting your companys green initiatives in todays economy must not be at the expense of meeting your mission critical objectives.

Energy consumed by lighting is estimated to account for nearly 30% of commercial energy usage and offers an immediate opportunity to quickly and effectively make a substantial down payment on your companys EcoValue.

their communities; its also beneficial to their companys reputation, value proposition and, if done right, their bottom line.

Not all of todays Green alternatives mean you have to sacrifice your business objectives. If you are like most companies you have a goal to implement better efficiencies but are aware that many alternatives come with unwanted and expensive side effects. Just the adoption and unintended cultural change can make an initiative fail before it has a chance to produce the positive effects you seek. With Active ES lighting controls, implementing your energy saving initiative does not mean changing the way you do business or altering the successful work environment you have created. Our products represent a simple upgrade to your existing facility, with easy implementation that can limit down time to as little as the time you take for lunch - not over days and weeks while disrupting your operations like most retrofits.

Green performance not tradeoffs

Active ES lighting controls allow you to select from 10 to 36% savings in lighting energy consumption based on your environment and performance requirements. For example, a typical warehouse structure drawing 1,100 Megawatts annually set to a 25% savings will produce 275 Negawatts* annually. Thats a direct reduction in 6,600,000 pounds of Carbon Dioxide, 11,480 pounds of Sulfur Dioxide, 19,140 pounds of Nitrogen Oxide and conserves an amazing 6,875,000 gallons of fresh water. At a rate of .10 per Kwh, thats also $27,500 in business sustainability. And Active ES lighting controls are designed and built to be easy on the environment. Our modular design can be repurposed to future facilities, is 95% recyclable by weight, meets RoHS compliance standards, and has an expected lifespan of decades.

Your existing HID lamps with Active ES Controls typically use about 80% as much energy as uncontrolled HID Lamps. Using the Active ES controller set to 20% savings, an HID Lamp using 400 watts is now using 320 watts and therefore generates 80 watts of clean energy to use somewhere else. Active ES products are designed to provide an easy-to-implement inexpensive lighting control upgrade as opposed to disruptive retrofit alternatives. We achieve this by improving the efficiency of your existing HID and Fluorescent lighting systems. HID and Fluorescent lamps start at full power and take up to 15 minutes to achieve full brightness. At this point they no longer need full power to maintain their optimum lighting levels and are wasting energy. Active ES lighting controls install between the panel and the load, starting and operating the lamps at full power before reducing power to a specified level, harvesting energy savings. By utilizing a patented method of energy reduction, power is reduced smoothly without unintended consequences to the life and operation of the controlled system. In fact, because of reduced power, the lamps exhibit improved lumen maintenance to maintain desired light levels longer than without our technology.

Its true! Energy savings and better lighting

The desiGned lumen output of a lamp is measured at a point 40% into the time of a lamps rated life. As the chart below shows, using the Active ES controls will slightly reduce the initial lumen output of a new lamp but will maintain the mean lumen output of the lamp above the Designed Lumen Output for a greater length of time, thus providing overall better lighting for the rated life of the lamp. Damage caused by the high operating temperatures of HID lamps is a significant factor in determining rated life and efficient life of a lamp. By reducing the excess energy that is normally dissipated as heat, Active ES controls allow the lamps to operate efficiently at lower temperatures extending the lamp and ballast effective life. Improved mean lumen output and longer lamp life means fewer spent bulbs in our landfills and lower maintenance costs.

documented energy savings By using

The units performed as claimed with no adverse effect on the power or the lamps and ballasts. Actual savings of 26.53% (test 1- parking structure) and 35.33% (test 2 street lights) was better than expected Edward A. Murdock, P.E., City of Anaheim The product has been easy to install, extremely reliable in the field, and produces the savings promised. These are installed outdoors in harsh environments, and they are performing perfectly. Kim Switzer, Reliable Electric

data loggers with Active ES Controls in place we can show your actual energy savings not an approximation but actual real time energy reductions that utilities use to validate rebate programs

Energy stimulus packages promote energy savings

Qualified companies are receiving tax credits, utility rebates, and favorable lease terms that make their energy efficiency efforts cash positive from day one. State and federal agencies are providing significant tax incentives promoting energy conservation and efficiency solutions. In addition, most local utility companies are providing significant rebates based on proven documented energy reduction solutions such as those provided by Active ES.
