How hotel’s can easily cut costs.

1 03 2010

Guest overuse isn´t the only reason a big portion of a hotel´s energy bill is tied directly to lighting. Inefficient bulbs are also major culprits. Fortunately, the fix is easy enough. Hotels can optimize their lighting efficiency by replacing standard incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs (CFL) that use less electricity and last up to 10,000 hours longer. This simple switch could mean $15,000 in annual savings for a 100-room property with five sockets in each room (Source: GE)  You can buy them here from your Energy Star Partner, Priority Lighting.

Lighting in the workplace and in our homes can make a difference on how we feel. In terms of its effect on the environment and the consequence to our pockets, the way we use lighting can be an important factor. For instance, the conventional incandescent light bulbs we commonly use in our home only use a very small percentage of its devoted energy into actual light. The remaining energy goes to distributing large amounts of heat. Therefore, using your AC to cool your space consumes even more energy.  Switching to a CFL can help save energy consumption by 75% and the newer LED technology can save up to 80% on your energy consumption. A typical CFL lasts around 10,000 hours while LED’s can last up to five times that amount – 50,000 hours. CFL’s should be properly recycled, while LED’s, light emitting diodes, are “eco friendly” and are usually 100% recyclable.

Build a Better Bulb for a $10 Million Prize


Rick Friedman for The New York Times

Philips has developed an LED light bulb that uses one-sixth the energy of a standard 60-watt incandescent bulb.

Philips has developed an LED light bulb that uses one-sixth the energy of a standard 60-watt incandescent bulb.

The ubiquitous but highly inefficient 60-watt light bulb badly needs a makeover. And it could be worth millions in government prize money — and more in government contracts — to the first company that figures out how to do it.

Right now, that company could be Philips, the Dutch electronics giant. The company announced on Thursday that it had submitted the first entry for the L Prize, an Energy Department contest that will award up to $10 million to the first person or group to create a new energy-sipping version of the most popular type of light bulb used in America.
