Green Ballast, Inc. (GBLL) Energy Efficient Ballast Technology Brings Modular LEED Green Building Performance to Entire Fluorescent Space
Green Ballast has gone a long way to help revolutionize the commercial lighting landscape with ingeniously designed electronic ballasts for fluorescent fixtures that offer huge energy efficiency gains. In fact, the fluorescent lighting savings achieved are so significant, the only way to squeeze any more efficiency out of lighting hardware would be to shut them off altogether. Green Ballast hardware is the most efficient energy saving ballast in the industry today and can save users up to a whopping 70% of typical capital outlays for lighting up a business.
The Green Ballast is easy to use, easy to install (cheaper to install than competing solutions as well), and also combines a simple (yet powerful) photocell sensor for reading the level of ambient daylight, together with robust daylight harvesting technology. The company has created a fixture upgrade that can easily be rolled out during upgrades/retrofits or during initial construction. With simplified wiring and an easy to understand tuning method (fixed level dip-switch can be set right out of the box), even a novice can redesign an entire lighting solution for optimal efficiency using Green Ballast technology and no special light measurement/adjustment to “commission” the system is required.
With a wide range of end markets among OEMs and real-estate developers/managers, as well as electrical lighting product distributors, energy services companies, and the usual types of commercial establishments that employ this type of lighting, GBLL has rapidly gained favor with a huge audience, who drawn in by the simple, yet highly-efficient energy savings. Indeed, what with energy conservation incentives/rebates out there that can easily allow a typical installation/upgrade to pay off its own cost in less than three years, the incentive among small or even large operations for deploying GBLL technology is immense. For instance, Green Ballast products qualify under the leading suite of efficiency ratings standards, LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, much like Energy Star), for their Energy Performance Credits, a great way to grab broad tax incentives and offset costs.
Daylight harvesting is achieved via the proprietary hardware/sensor package combo, which constantly reads the light level (a Green Ballast equipped fixture can literally see its environment’s light level) within output range of the fixture and automatically steps down output from the fluorescent lamps accordingly. When you combine this feature with the ability to tune each fixture, bringing the light level down to within a functional range, anywhere from 10-100%, we have a brilliantly designed product here, whose broad appeal to property managers in particular should be immediately apparent.
Recent installations of Green Ballast technology throughout the U.S. attest to the long reach of this great concept and the number of customers won over by the ability to upgrade one fixture or a thousand fixtures with ease is growing daily. Whether we are talking the massive Dallas Fort Worth International Airport down in Texas, LA-headquartered textiles giant American Apparel Inc., or another LA fixture in its own accord, the Wilshire Plaza Building, Green Ballast helps companies save energy on their lighting, whether they are large or small. Even if you had just a few fixtures in a small business, this technology can help to maximize often under analyzed lighting energy expenses that are lumped in as part of the energy bill. Most smaller businesses, including many real-estate operations that use a ton of fluorescent lighting throughout the site, simply do not understand the amount of money they are throwing away over-lighting areas (this solution is a no-brainer).
Division of veteran NYC-located lighting manufacturer Apollo Lighting (which has been in business since the end of WW2), EchoSun Energy recently announced that they have picked the Green Ballast technology for integration into their own EchoSun 2 and EchoSun 2LED products. The patented wiring, photocell, and dimming solution developed by GBLL has proven itself yet again from a cost-to-savings standpoint. Yet another customer won over on the basis of how simple/robust the units are and the lack of any complicated commissioning or programming required by other more expensive alternatives.
This is a sure-fire product for meeting emergent green building (environmentally sustainable) initiatives and is a marvelous execution of daylight harvesting, an application type which has become an industry standard in green building. The immediate appeal for Green Ballast technology to end markets, which are able to upgrade just one fixture at a time if they want to ease into the process, strikes at the root of the problem and the market. Green Ballast configurations come in 2, 3, and 4-Lamp 32 Watt T8 and meet with all leading performance standards (NEMA LL9-2009, ANSI C62.41, FCC Title 47 CFR, Class A Part 18, ISO 9002 Manufacture). They are UL C-US Listed and contain zero PCB’s, offering consumers a very safe and hearty profile that can be trusted.
