Our 2 Year Anniversary Countdown | Restaurants

 In Client Projects

Looking back over the past two years, as we come closer to celebrating our two year anniversary, our clients have had a great first year return on investment! When our clients are happy – we’re happy!

Today, we look at two of our restaurant clients.

In a typical restaurant, lights can be on for 16 to 20 hours a day. Electricity is one of the easiest places to save money. By installing occupancy sensors in bathrooms, closets, storage and break rooms’ lights are only on when you need them. If the restaurant has fluorescent lighting with T12 lamps and magnetic ballasts, upgrading to T8 and T5 lamps with electronic ballasts would save you money. Electronic ballasts have faster on-times plus they don’t hum or flicker.
