Fluorescent bulbs contain mercury as well as other toxins harmful to us and the environment which become hazardous waste when they no longer work. Mercury poses especially serious hazards to pregnant women and small children.
Non-working tubes must be recycled by an authorized recycling firm. It is illegal to discard them in the trash. A recent survey found that properly disposing of fluorescent lamps often cost more than the purchase price, installation and replacement of the ballast. Many people just throw them in the trash to avoid the cost of legal disposal.
A typical commercial building’s lighting averages 37%-50% of its electrical demand.
1 Billion fluorescent lamps are disposed of every year globally. This means 50,000 pounds of mercury is polluting the earth every year. It only takes 4 mg of mercury to poison 7,000 gallons of water. That’s enough mercury to pollute every gallon of water in the U.S & Canada.
Penalties for Illegally disposing of Hazardous Waste
Mark Bachman of El Cajon, Calif., CEO of Bigger Than Life Inc., pleaded guilty to violating the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act by illegally disposing of hazardous waste. When sentenced, the defendant faces a maximum sentence of up to five years in prison and/or a fine of up to $250,000. The case was investigated by the EPA’s Criminal Investigation Division in Washington D.C., the FBI and the San Diego Dept. of Environmental Health Services. It was prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s office in San Diego.
Signed by former President Bush and supported by President Obama, mandates that all businesses must convert to energy efficient lighting which will phase out most or all forms of incandescent and fluorescent lighting by 2012.
We purchase the lamp and the ballast. Next we pay someone to install it. We periodically replace the plastic lens which discolors with the UV rays. We live with the bad light and flickering lamp until it becomes more of a distraction than a benefit. We then remove the tubes and the ballasts, contract to dispose of them and install replacements. In a typical business, this whole process represents a cost per year of approximately $103.00 per bulb.
Soluna Green lighting is not just a luxury, it is a necessity for employee performance, energy savings and increasing profitability for any business. Knowing this, we believe in helping our clients on many levels. As energy costs are constantly on the rise, our first thought is how to save them money over the long term. This is not to mention making the conversion to the new technology as easy and effortless as possible while providing the best possible lighting.
Soluna Green is committed to our customers to be at their disposal to provide technical support throughout the process. We will come in to your project with our knowledge to make your lighting system as efficient as possible by doing a survey of your current situation and providing you with our solutions and projected energy savings.
In recent years many companies have introduced LED lamps to replace both incandescent and fluorescent lighting. Many of them use old technology – through board LED’s.
The older technology was designed to create spot lighting for instrumentation purposes making them inefficient at creating general lighting source. Their angle of light dissipation is narrow creating a point source output rather than a flood type output.
Our lamps use newer, more efficient Surface Mount LED’s. They have 120-128 degree light dispersal creating a very environmentally friendly light with a very broad spectrum or light color that enables our engineers to tailor the output to the user’s needs.
Soluna Green lighting meets or exceeds Energy Star standards, meeting the Dark Sky Standards of the IDA and currently the only LED lighting UL certified.
A typical commercial building’s lighting averages 37%- 50% of its electrical demand. LED lighting uses up to 80% less wattage than traditional forms of lighting. Energy savings average 50%- 80% for typical commercial buildings and warehouses.
A fluorescent efficacy reaches 70% at 8000 hrs, our LED’s are rated for 50,000 – 100,000 hours.
While the focus of this presentation has been fluorescent tubes, we do have replacement lamps for most types of incandescent, fluorescent and other types of bulbs. We can also create lights for unique applications if we have a picture, model and make of the existing lamp.
Soluna Green has financing available for the purchase of your new lighting system. Our lease program provides the ability to take advantage of our lighting without the out of pocket expense. With the lease payment being less than the overall savings, it will allow your company to increase it’s “bottom line”
Consult your tax professional
Consult your tax professional about the benefits of leasing versus buying outright. There may be tax write-offs or depreciation differences to consider.
There are incentives currently being offered by the Federal Government as well as most energy companies for the implementation of Green technology that you may qualify for. Soluna Green will assist as much as possible for you to gain the information on programs available to you.
United Supermarkets changed over 3,600 of their refrigerator and freezer lights from fluorescent to LED. That equated to a cost savings of $633,000 per year on energy and maintenance savings. The expected ROI is 1.8 years. The retrofit represents an annual 2.9 million pound reduction of carbon dioxide emissions.
Boathouse Row restaurant in Philadelphia, PA exchanged their lighting with LED’s and decreased their annual lighting costs by $7,000 with a maintenance savings of $50,000 per year.
The city of Portland, Oregon changed out the red and green in 6,800 traffic signals and is now saving $330,000 USD per year in energy costs. The expected payback on their investment is 3.1 years. Even with the costly road installations, the ROI is 32%. (Our lights would give an even higher rate of return.)
An architect for the New Fushun Building in Hong Kong recently decided to implement LED technology in their office lighting. He used LED technology in 600 panels as a test run. In the first year, the savings equaled $22,000 USD on lighting costs. A cost reduction of $68,000 USD over their lifetime. A savings of $257,200 USD total over the lifetime of the fixtures.
Princess Margaret Hospital in the Bahamas recently changed 2,190 fluorescent tubes to LED lights in two buildings. In the first year they saw savings of $144,792.65 USD in energy costs alone. That is a savings of $12,066.54 per month. Return on Investment was 1.1 years.
