when they leave saving energy from leaving lights on when not needed.

The same will be true for Electronic Low Voltage, Florescent, etc.Add the total wattage for the bulbs that will be used by this dimmer. This is known as the 'load'.&n...
Lutron dimmers use tinned copper wires on some of our products. These
wires are silver in color as a result of the tinning process. Tinned
copper wires are compatible with copper wiring and wire nuts. Lutron
dimmer uses tinned copper wires to avoid stray strands and to make our
products easier to install.
