Principles of Sustainable Design: Low-Voltage Systems

Low-voltage power systems are integrated power systems in buildings that can run on either AC or DC current. The ranges of a low-voltage system are anything less than 49 volts for AC and anything less than 120 volts for DC. Comparatively, a normal voltage system ranges from 50 - 1000 volts for AC and anywhere from 120 to 1500 volts for DC. Low-voltage systems are intended to run specific applications and can end up saving energy and money.

The Light Bulb Moment: Understanding the Advantages of LED Lighting

In past years, incandescent and fluorescent lighting was the steadfast option for commercial buildings. Although these lights ultimately achieve the goal of providing ample lighting in large spaces and are energy efficient, they are slightly more expensive to utilize than traditional lighting solutions. But because of its potential payoff benefits, LED lighting is a great alternative lighting option. Many companies are quickly making the switch to LED lighting because they are energy efficient, long lasting, and less damaging. Below, we will dive deeper into the advantages of switching to LED lighting.

Using Smart Micro-Grids in your Project

Sustainable technology buildings and localized business parks are taking advantage of smart microgrid technology. Large power plant systems can be costly and unreliable. A smart microgrid system takes the same concepts of a large power grid design and scales everything down to accommodate a small, local business park or campus. There are many applications for a smart microgrid installation, which come with sustainable benefits. Below, we will examine how smart microgrids work and their several benefits they can bring to your next building project.
