More energy efficient stage lighting? Yes, please! Theatrical lighting is found in many schools, churches, and local theaters. The Tungsten lamp on the left runs at 575 or 750 watts, lasts for about 1,500 to 2,000 hours, and requires oft-replaced gel slides for color changes. And it gets very hot. By comparison, the LED light on the right runs at 120 to 500 watts and lasts for up to 50,000 hours, with similar or greater intensity. The LED light also produces less heat, so there is less energy use and cost to help keep auditorium rooms cool. Thanks for the demo, Grand Stage Chicago!

As part of our Energy Savers for Nonprofits and Public Buildings program, our in-house experts will evaluate your building — including your light use —  and provide advice on the best energy efficiency improvements, financing options, and construction management and oversight. Program staff will help every step of the way, making it easy and affordable for nonprofits, municipalities, and religious communities to implement efficient building improvements. Visit our sitefill out an application, or give us a call to find out more:  (855) 372-8377.
