LED T8 Lighting Tubes can replace existing Fluorescents and Reduce Energy Consumption

As Industry professionals, the switch to LED should be predicated on a payback that will reduce operating expenses and increase future cash flow, while boosting your company's greater mission for sustainability. Lighting is estimated to constitute roughly 42% of energy cost in Retail facilities. Lighting retrofits can save over 50% of lighting energy, as well as 10 -20% of cooling energy. Our goal is to maintain existing quality of light while reducing energy and maintenance costs where possible. If a lamp or fixture can replace an existing lamp or fixture without compromising the delivered lighting quality, maintained over time, only then should it be considered for retrofit.

LED T8 lighting tubes appear to offer the Holy Grail- great energy savings, long life span (50,000 plus hours), instant-on, small-scale flexibility, RoHS compliance (sans Mercury), and reduced maintenance costs. Our T8 LED Light tube is a direct replacement for fluorescent T8 lights. The ELS T8 consumes only 15 watts and does not require a ballast. Our lamp is a cooling lighting source, which greatly reduces your HVAC consumption.

The ELS LED T8 comes in 2, 4, and 8 feet versions. This light can be used in place of T5 and T10 fluorescent fixtures as well.

Lincoln Financial Field Will Be Powered With On-Site, Renewable Energy By September 2011

The Philadelphia Eagles today announced a plan to power Lincoln Financial Field with a combination of onsite wind, solar and dual-fuel generated electricity, making it the world's first major sports stadium to convert to self-generated renewable energy.

The Eagles have contracted with Orlando FL-based SolarBlue, a renewable energy and energy conservation company, to install approximately 80 20-foot spiral-shaped wind turbines on the top rim of the stadium, affix 2,500 solar panels on the stadium's fa├žade, build a 7.6 megawatt onsite dual-fuel cogeneration plant and implement sophisticated monitoring and switching technology to operate the system.

Over the next year, SolarBlue will invest in excess of $30 million to build out the system, with a completion goal of September 2011. SolarBlue will maintain and operate the stadium's power system for the next 20 years at a fixed annual price increase in electricity, saving the Eagles an estimated $60 million in energy costs.
