This is an example of an energy conservation project performed by Paquette Electric Company.
The existing high bay fixtures were 400 Watt, High Pressure Sodium lights, which use approximately 455 watts per fixture. Though they have a high lumen output, the color rendering leaves something to be desired. Paquette Electric chose four light, High Output, T5 fluorescent high bay fixtures as a replacement. These fixtures only use 234 Watts per fixture, with a largely improved color rendering. The effect on the working environment speaks for itself.
In this age of emerging energy-saving awareness, Paquette Electric has extensive expertise in the area of Energy Conservation.
