Energy consumption for all lighting in the United States is estimated to be about 22% of the total electricity generated in the country. Consumers and businesses spend approximately $58 billion per year to light their homes, offices, streets, and factories.

The conversion of electricity into useful light is one of the least efficient energy conversion processes in buildings today. However, because of advanced lighting technologies we can significantly improve the energy efficiency of lighting and reduce building energy consumption and costs. Also, with the Epact act of 2005, emphasis on energy conservation and utilities incentive programs currently going on accelerates the opportunity and the need to be proactive.
Marshall E. Campbell Co. can do just that. Never before have there been so many opportunities to reduce lighting energy consumption and costs as there are right now. The source of these gains comes from the conversion of various light sources depending on the application. It can be anywhere from office and warehouse, to street lighting, hospitals and even residential. The savings can come from changing out light sources to installing automation controls; both offer resounding results.
