    T12 To T8 Lighting Retrofits T12 To T8 Lighting Retrofits Presentation Transcript

    • Lighting and Energy Efficient Upgrades www.BrightIdeasLightingCo.com 208-378-1889
    • T12 Fluorescent Lighting
      • Rapidly being phased out in favor of T8 or T5s.
      • Typically operate on inefficient magnetic ballast
      • Energy Policy Act of 2005 forbids sale of magnetic T12 ballasts as of July 1, 2010
      • Probably still close to 40% of fluorescent lighting in Boise metro today, even higher in smaller towns outside Treasure Valley.
    • T12 replacement options
      • Cheapest option will be to retrofit fixture – change out ballast and bulbs to T8 lights.
      • Lithonia Relight T5 kit allows some fixtures to be easily converted from T12 to 2 lamp F28 T5s. Higher costs than T8 retrofit. Over 60% energy reduction possible.
    • T8s as alternative to T12
      • Can be “retrofitted” to current T12 fixtures.
      • No need for new fixtures or changes to fixture configuration
      • Approximately 30-35% more efficient than T12s. Use electronic ballasts.
      • Electronic ballasts run quieter and cooler than electromagnetic.
    • T8s as alternative to T12
        • Much higher lumens per watt than T12 – approx 90 lumens per watt, T12 around 60.
        • Produces more light than 34-watt T12, while using less energy
        • Higher color rendering index (low 80s for T8 vs. low 60s for T12)
        • Standard for new construction since year 2000 time frame (Idaho)
    • T12 to T8 retrofitting -Delamping
      • Delamping- using less T8 lamps than T12s.
      • Example - 2 T8 lamps in fixture that was previously a 3 lamp or 4 lamp T12.
      • Advantages are increased energy savings, bigger Idaho Power rebates, lower costs to customer
    • What if your business already has T8 lighting??
      • ANSWER – Reduced wattage T8 light bulbs.
      • Come in 30, 28, and 25 watt versions.
      • Comparable light levels to 700 series light bulbs
      • Slightly more expensive than 700 series lamps, but last longer.
    • Reduced Wattage T8 light bulbs
      • Idaho Power currently offers 50 cents per bulb rebate.
      • Rebate good whether replacing T12s or full wattage T8 lamps
      • Not for use below 60 degrees
      • Some reported problems with striations in lamp.
