What is the Most Effective Way to Manage Commercial Lighting?
Only apply as much light as minimally needed using fully shielded fixtures that prevent glare and excessive upward light spill to assure safe and secure conditions on your property. Install an astronomical time clock to assure needless energy is not wasted after business hours. An astronomical time clock uses a photosensor that automatically synchronizes switch settings with varying daylight that changes during the seasons and does not require resetting each time there is a power failure.

The U. S. Federal agency that regulates emissions in the radio frequency portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. Part 18 of the FCC rules specifies electromagnetic interference (EMI) from lighting devices operating at frequencies greater than 9 kilohertz (kHz). Typical electronically-ballasted compact fluorescent lamps operate in the 24 - 100 kHz frequency range.
Natural light is no longer an after thought in home and commercial design. Light Harvesting is architectual design for building interiors which make use of daylight as a way of reducing energy consumption.
Ceiling Fixtures are designed to give overall illumination to a room. By the time the light travels the distance from the ceiling fixture to table level, it becomes unfocused and too dim for seeing small details. Putting brighter, higher wattage lamps in the ceiling fixtures is not an economical solution because it increases your electric bill. A better solution would be to create task lighting. Task lighting could be a small undercabinette fluorescent fixture, or a table lamp, or...
Low voltage Halogen lights have many advantages. They can provide up to 66% savings in energy cost. A 50 watt halogen lamp can replace a 150 watt flood lamp with cooler operating temperature while providing whiter, truer light. It is also possible to create much smaller fixture heads which can increase design possibilities.
