Mobile App Provides Energy Efficient Solutions

 
Upgraded mobile app provides energy efficient solutions for facility managers.

Are you looking to upgrade your lighting system with a more energy efficient solution, but just aren’t sure if the cash return will be worth it?

The newest version of the LightSmart mobile app by Underwriters Laboratories features a 'Calculate ROI' function, enabling users to calculate the payback time for upgrading to more efficient lighting technology. The app determines the ROI based on incandescent lamps, which are the cheapest up-front replacement lamps but the most costly for ongoing operating expenses and typically have the shortest life.

"With the cost of LED lamps coming down, the app allows users to input the replacement cost to get an accurate ROI based on the users local energy rates obtained automatically thru location services," said Shari Hunter, business development manager at UL. "In addition to the payback period, users also receive feedback on how their lighting choices can help reduce carbon emissions."

The free mobile app is designed to help users realize the many benefits gained through LED and other more energy efficient lighting possibilities in their living and working environments.

The UL LightSmart app was developed in part, as a response to the Federal Energy Independence Act and Security Act of 2007, which mandated that over time, inefficient incandescent bulbs be replaced with Compact Florescent Lamps (CFLs) and Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs) beginning with the 100 Watt light bulb in 2012. The UL LightSmart app version 1.2 is currently available for the iPad and iPhone at Apple iTunes Store and for Android at Google PlayTM.
