Lutron Helps the Empire State Building Set a New Standard for Sustainable, Commercial Renovation

number 1Lighting in commercial buildings generally accounts for 39% of total building electricity use. By reducing lighting electricity use up to 65%2, Lutron light controls go a long way to helping Empire State Building Company (ESB) meet their efficiency goals. To promote even greater energy savings, wireless occupancy sensors communicate with the Lutron dimming ballasts and the HVAC system, to turn lights off and reduce HVAC energy use when the space is unoccupied. Jones Lang LaSalle, project manager of ESB’s “Empire State ReBuilding” program, and Lutron, compared Lutron occupancy sensor strategies to simple time clock control, and found that by turning lights off in unoccupied areas during typical work hours, and not just after hours, the building saves nearly 38% more lighting electricity than it would with time clock control.
