Luminaire Level Lighting Controls
Shining a new light on savings
Lighting offers the region the largest potential commercial sector savings, comprising approximately 43 percent of the total commercial electric load. Luminaire Level Lighting Controls (LLLCs) offer 40 to 60 percent savings compared with non-controlled fixtures and contribute to the transformation of energy efficiency in the commercial sector.
Embedding lighting controls into luminaires reduces costs and simplifies installation and commissioning compared with traditional controls that are separate from the luminaires. And, luminaire-level controls allow each luminaire to function independently – allowing for individual controllability and the possibility of increased energy savings.
NEEA's goal is to make embedded sensors and controls a standard feature on commercial and industrial luminaires.
