School District Benefits
On average, 56% of an educational institution’s energy expenses go to lighting costs.Now consider this: On average, “green” schools use 33% less energy and save $100,000 per year—enough to hire two new teachers, buy 200 new computers or purchase 5,000 new textbooks.
With numbers like that, it’s no wonder school districts nationwide are turning to XtraLight Manufacturing to significantly reduce their energy costs and enable investment in students’ futures.Efficient lighting systems from XtraLight are also a natural fit with the environmental commitment of schools at every level.
In an effort to conserve the nation’s energy resources, in October 2008, President Bush signed the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008, which extended the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPACT).
What is EPACT? It regulates and mandates minimum efficiency regulations, incentives, and research dollars for lamps, ballasts, fixtures, LEDs, transformers, electrical equipment, motors, and appliances.
How will it affect my business? Energy efficiency is a national concern and EPACT gives market-based incentives and solutions to reduce costs and enhance energy efficiency overall.
