NEMA's enLIGHTen America initiative hopes to reach a wider audience in 2010


Oct 20, 2009

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) expects that its enLIGHTen America initiative will reach a wider audience in 2010 with its message about energy and costs savings through lighting renovation. Launched in August 2008, enLIGHTen America has primarily targeted executives in the building owner/operator markets. It provides tools and information on the advantages of upgrading old lighting products and systems.

Lighting accounts for up to 40% of a building's energy use, and organizations that have upgraded have achieved rapid payback on their investment. EnLIGHTen America research has shown there are plans to upgrade the lighting in 41% of the nation's five million commercial, industrial and institutional buildings during the next year.
