Lighting Tech Tip: LLLCs: Fast Track to Higher Savings

December 7, 2020 | Trade Ally Network NW

Everyone would like to move beyond the complexity of 2020. You can make things easier for your customer, and expand their satisfaction, by implementing networked lighting controls (NLC) in your next lighting design. Consider luminaire level lighting controls (LLLC), defined by their “out-of-the-box” simplicity.

Not only do LLLCs offer energy savings, they also provide non-energy benefits in the way of light quality, individual control, and color tuning.

With many of your customers working to reopen facilities and implement stricter social distancing requirements, LLLC fixtures offer built-in flexibility and adapt to changing occupant needs. Building tenant satisfaction and performance increases with custom control of their work environment. And, LLLC fixtures provide an additional 30-70% estimated energy savings over facilities without controls.

Your local electric utility may offer an additional incentive of up to $40-$100 per NLC-connected fixture. Utility incentives vary, so check with your regional field specialist or local utility to verify availability and amounts.

Your regional field specialist can show you how to incorporate LLLC fixtures into your next project. Use the change in seasons to change your approach to lighting control.
