Lutron Electronics Co., designer and manufacturer of lighting controls, lighting control systems and shading solutions, has announced its sponsorship of the 2006 Lighting for Profit seminars that will take place in Philadelphia on September 21 at the Federal Reserve Bank Building and in Washington D.C. on September 22 at the FDIC Training Center. As electricity rates are forecasted to increase an average of 35% in the top 19 U.S. markets in 2007, these seminars are a series of breakfast forums providing expert insight on how to unlock hidden energy savings and create profits as rates continue to rise.
Organized by the Center for Sustainable Real Estate, Commercial Building Products, and the Corporate Realty, Design & Management Institute, the Lighting for Profit seminars are tailored for owners and operators of office, retail, education, health care, warehouse, and institutional buildings.
Each seminar is open to more than 100 attendees who can earn AIA and BOMI credits while participating in these interactive sessions that offer an opportunity to:
– Learn the five-step process that can turn a building’s lighting into a cash machine
– Discover how much saving a watt is worth to a building owner
– Understand the economics of sustainable lighting practices and how to explain them to a CFO
– See how changing a single light bulb can make over $40
– Learn how the right technology can actually add dollars to a project budget
– Explore how to put daylight to work in a building
Tickets are $35 in advance; $50 at the door.
Guest speaker, B. Alan Whitson, RPA, is a nationally renowned speaker, author, and columnist and is the creator of the Whitson’s Turning Green into Gold programs.
