Smart Lighting Control Technology Can Cut Lighting Electricity Use 60%, Company Claims


New smart lighting control technology from startup Enlighted has saved its first corporate customers (the likes of Google, Turner Broadcasting, LinkedIn, Interface Global, and 31 other Fortune 100 companies) 60% of their previous lighting electricity usage, Enlighted notes.

The company, based in a nice Silicon Valley city I used to live in (Sunnyvale, CA), says that its Enlighted Virtuo Series “features the industry’s first autonomous, adaptive sensor.”

“This ‘thinking’ sensor measures ambient light, occupancy and temperature at each fixture and tailors light levels to each user’s actual needs maximizing occupant comfort and minimizing energy cost.”

Hmm, I wrote “smart” above, but perhaps I should have written “very smart!” Here’s more:

Enlighted’s unique patented solution delivers a triple-value benefit. First, the system delivers a bankable energy savings rate in the range of 50 to 70 percent. This savings rate exceeds all previous lighting controls systems because the system is distributed down to the individual fixture. The installation process is also simplified because the connection between the sensor and fixture enables the system to auto-commission itself for each unique environment into which it is installed. Finally, the system has a network backhaul enabling facility managers to monitor the performance of the system and validate energy savings claims.

Triple-whammy, indeed.

“We knew that we had to have Enlighted in our portfolio because we were really excited by the sheer magnitude of how much this technology can save in energy and costs,” said Steve Jurvetson, Managing Director, Draper Fisher Jurvetson.

“When you can save 70 percent of your electricity with something that doesn’t require any sacrifice, it is a no brainer. This intelligent, easy, low cost technology is leading a new generation of lighting sense and control solutions. With its impressive list of high profile customers, we are confident that Enlighted’s platform is quickly becoming a must-have in energy efficiency technology.”

I’m quite confident it will, as well. What do you think?

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
