Each year, our products save nearly 10 billion kWh of electricity

"A building Operating a Lutron total light management solution can save $1 or more in energy costs per square foot per year"

Glenn Hughes, director of construction for The New York Times Company building in New York City reports 75% lighting energy savings using Lutron systems. Jeff Choma, manager of mechanical and electrical systems at Georgian College in Ontario, Canada reports 70% lighting energy savings using Lutron systems. Lighting energy savings exceeding 60% is frequently reported by customers using Lutron solutions as part of an overall energy-saving program.

"Our solutions can improve productivity (1,2,3), save up to 60% of lighting energy (4), and reduce operating costs"
