Energy usage associated with lighting is usually one of the, if not the, top expense a Building Owner/Operators must incur in his business.  Many solutions have been considered to reduce this expense which can range from simplistic timer based controls to complete building management integration.  There isn’t a one size fits all concept but there is a solution that can be easily implemented, have minimal capital expense and gives the BOO the opportunity to reduce this expense line as much as 70%.  This webinar will walk the attendees through the process required to implement controls to illustrate the complexity and cost typically incurred in a lighting controls installation.  Cree will demonstrate how it will change the perception of lighting controls through a simple one step process.
