Green Lights: A Bright Investment in the Environment

green lightsThe Green Lights Process.
When a corporation joins the Green Lights program, it signs a Memorandum of Understanding with the EPA. This agreement commits the corporation to survey all of its facilities and install new lighting systems that maximize energy savings to the extent that they are profitable and do not compromise lighting quality.

There are no technology prescriptions. The corporation agrees to complete these upgrades within five years and to document the improvements it makes. After the company joins the program, it commits to using the most current building energy guidelines when new facilities are constructed.

Typically, a corporation will implement the Green Lights process through four phases:

  1. Survey: Green Lights corporations will survey their facilities to determine where lighting can be upgraded.
  2. Options Analysis: The corporation will identify the most favorable upgrades for each area covered by the lighting survey.
  3. Trial Installation: Green lights recommends a trial installation of the new technology and a gathering of feedback from employees.
  4. Final Upgrade: After Green Lights corporations make the final installation of new technologies, they will begin to realize large savings on electricity bills, significant pollution prevention, and public recognition of environmental leadership.
