Re: GBlist: Re: Greywater & Lighting in NYC
I had never heard that before. The US EPA Green Lights program
recommends them, however after further reading I've discovered that
they do recommend them for spaces where "occupancy is infrequent or
unpredictable, such as private offices, conference rooms, storage
rooms, or rest rooms".
The more I think about it, the less appropriate they are for the home,
especially if they use that much energy to turn on.
I suppose it depends on how much energy the sensor takes to start and
run versus how often people forget to turn off the lights for long
periods of time. Did the people at Phillips give you any numbers for
the energy requirements?
Thanks for the info.
