Energy Saving Strategies

Lutron controls can save up to 60% of lighting energy used in today’s commercial buildings compared to manual, or non-automated controls. A reduction in the connected lighting load can also reduce the air conditioning load. Typically for every three watts of lighting energy saved, one watt of HVAC energy is saved as well.

Below is a summary of different control strategies used for lighting, shades, and HVAC, along with the potential energy savings benefit of each. See the Lutron Energy Savings Claims for additional information on each of these control strategies.
