Illuminate ways to reduce utility bills with a lighting upgrade
Abstract: Manufacturers who have been considering upgrading their plant’s T12 fluorescent lights need to act soon. The U.S. Department of Energy pulled the plug last year on production of most T12 bulbs and ballasts — the most widely used fluorescent unit for the past 60 years. Another option is to invest in newer, energy-efficient T5 and T8 fluorescents. There are the up-front costs, but this article offers ways to offset them.
