Lighting consumes 30% to 50% of the energy used in most commercial and industrial buildings. In fact, buildings account for over 70% of all electricity consumption. The lighting systems in most US commercial buildings are over 20 years old.
A custom lighting upgrade from AAI enables the end user to significantly reduce operating costs and move to a greener carbon footprint.
