Perspective on the Potential Savings Impact with LED Lights – US Sq Ft by Property Type

See the breakdown of US Sq Ft by Property Type as a guide to review which property types are greater or lesser than others across America.

The following information is useful for lighting and energy professionals in identifying the scope of impact on savings with LED tubes and LED fixtures across different property types. Before the mainstream recognition of Commercial LED Lighting, we used the US Sq Ft by Property Type data to identify the “low hanging fruit” of energy efficiency. We started with the property types that had the long run times to maximize the ROI, and we focused on areas within buildings like exit stairs and base buildings running 24/7.
