Posted by Dave VanTol on Thu, Oct 06, 2011 @ 08:10 AM

What are the best products energy efficient products for energy efficient installations? 

Take a look at some we really like....(just our opinion)

Top Energy Efficient Products:

This post is going to highlight some of my top picks for energy efficient products and new technology. In this article, we are going to cover lighting, power monitoring, and drives.

This will give a brief overview of what I like and why I like it. Now without further ado.

Energy Efficient Lighting:

Here's a fixture we have used in the past, it's one of many solid solutions for energy efficiency.

Why I like it:

1. Great lamp life coupled with reduced maintenance.

2. Excellent performance! 99% of the time it can save a minimum of 50% over the tech it replaces.

3. Phenominal coloring of the environment....it looks      like daylight!

 

Rab has been a provider of high quality, economical lighting solutions for years. Here's

workhorse drives which fits into many applications.

Square D E-Flex drive

1. Convenient all in 1 package

2. Broad range of horsepower and voltage ratings

3. Phenominal value, implementations usually result in a 18 month    or less payback!

 

Measuring Energy Efficient - Power Quality:

Ideal is a highly respected manufacturer of metering technology, the power quality analyzer below contnues that trend in innovation and quality. 

Ideal power quality meter

1. Small form factor energy-efficient-products-measuring-power-quality

2. Simple to use 

3. Analyzes power factor, harmonic distortion, spikes and sags. Great  value!

Here are Some Other Energy Efficient Honarable mentions:

Ultralux T5 Highbay 

Everlast Bi-level Inductive fluorescent wall pack 

GE Max-N Ultra ballasts 

There ya have it folks! The work horses in energy efficient products

My intent is to do a series of tech round-ups showing and highlighting products that are proven performers in the field of energy efficiency.
