Solus will take the time to walk through your facility and educate you on your existing lighting and how LED can benefit your facility environmentally, financially and aesthetically. It is important for Solus representatives to identify where LED makes the most sense in each and every facility. Our services are absolutely free - we want to help you become more efficient through the most efficient type of lighting available in the market today.

Solid-state Technology will Light the Future

Solid-state lighting technology essentially creates light without producing heat. A semi-conducting material converts electricity directly into light, which makes the light very energy efficient. Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) are two types of solid-state lighting and LEDs are currently shaping the future of lighting. LED lighting is now the third major evolution in lighting. Over the last 100 years, incandescent followed by fluorescent have been the two main forms of lighting across most market segments. Metal Halide and High Pressure Sodium are currently the main form used for street, building and parking lot lighting and are the most inefficient form of lighting available. General lighting suppliers do not necessarily focus their attention on technologically advanced LED lamps due to the vast array of lighting options they represent and offer. It is advisable to consult with a supplier such as Solus LED, which focuses its efforts solely on LED. This approach helps you to receive highly knowledgeable and detailed LED information. LED currently offers sufficient lumen flux to replace incandescent, fluorescent, metal halide and high pressure sodium applications. The components used to produce low wattage high flux LED lamps are crucial for achieving exceptional performance and 50,000+ hours of life. It is imperative to understand that Price=Quality in today's LED market. While lower priced Chinese products are easily accessible through online retailers, these products do not use the required component quality to achieve the necessary results that LED solutions provide. Mass produced Chinese LED products are currently experiencing high failure rates and operate with many inconsistencies.

Reduce Energy Demand

Lighting comprises a significant portion of any electricity bill. This percentage can range from 30%-55% based on what type of facility is being illuminated. Bottom line, lighting is an important aspect of business operations and should get proper attention. Never before has lighting been able to drop demand by up to 90% from incandescent and 50% from fluorescent technology. Energy savings through lighting efficiencies alone can amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars depending on project scope and size.

Commercial and industrial facilities using high powered metal halide or high pressure sodium high bay lamps can effectively reduce its wattage from 400w to 100w with a LED high bay solution. This amounts to a 75% demand reduction and a more ambient form of lighting. LED can offer a demand reduction solution for almost any kind of project scenario. Take advantage of Solus' free audit and solution ideas to help your facility perform more efficiently.

The current rapid pace of technological development in this sector coupled with increasingly-strained natural resources will only further encourage the evolution of LEDs. The future of LED lighting is very promising: LEDs are considered the best market in this coming decade on a global scale and look to Solus for quality LED solutions.

Project Example
LED lighting will undoubtedly work its way as the standard in everyday lighting. Early adapters will achieve a competitive business advantage through short payback periods and avoiding the cost of waiting. 50,000+ hour lamps will allow all forms of buildings and facilities to capture substantial cash flow for many years beyond payback periods through energy and maintenance savings before any replacement is required.

The Project Example exemplifies a true project case where inefficient T12 fluorescent linear tubes were replaced by LED linear tubes. Although upfront fluorescent technology pricing is advantageous to LED pricing, long term results show this belief is inaccurate when combining energy and maintenance savings. Compounded facility savings through fluorescent lamp replacements, ballasts and associated maintenance become substantial over the life span of a LED lamp.
