GLRPPR Sector Resource: High-Bay Lighting: Opportunities for Mercury Reduction and Energy Efficiency

Title:
High-Bay Lighting: Opportunities for Mercury Reduction and Energy Efficiency

Abstract:
This fact sheet from INFORM, Inc. focuses on high-bay lighting, a type of lighting used in high-ceiling areas to light surfaces more than 15 feet away. This type of lighting is often used in warehouses, gymnasiums, manufacturing facilities and warehouse-type retail facilities. Different high-bay lighting options are compared in terms of mercury use, energy efficiency, and cost of purchasing and running the lights. Specifically, metal halide, induction fluorescents, and T5 linear fluorescents are compared. (PDF Format; Length: 4 pages)
