NEW LED Troffers from S-Tek Greenline

Do you have traditional fluorescent lighting in your home or business? Most people do in their utility room and/or garage areas and the lighting is often hot and unpredictable – flickering to the point of  insanity, or at times simply not working at all! Many  businesses use these lights for security purposes leaving them on day and night unaware of the total power consumption being used or the fact that there is an greener and more cost effective option available.

Our newest division S-Tek Greenline has a many lighting solutions guaranteed to meet your needs whether it’s for your home or business. We would like to introduce our newest product LED Troffers that replace 2×2 or 2×4 fluorescent lighting! 

LED Troffers from S-Tek Greenline

  • 2×2 Troffers – 24″Wx3-3/16″Hx48″L Recessed lensed fixture for grid T-bar ceilings; Low-profile design ideal for restricted plenum applications; Smooth hemmed sides and smooth ends promote easy handling during installation; Standard steel door frame has superior structural integrity with premium extruded appearance and mitered corners; 100% acrylic lens with prism pattern
  • 2×4 Troffers – 24″Wx3-3/16″Hx24″L Recessed lensed fixture for grid T-bar ceilings; Low-profile design ideal for restricted plenum applications; Smooth hemmed sides and smooth ends promote easy handling during installation; Standard steel door frame has superior structural integrity

If the flickering alone hasn’t convinced you to switch to LED Troffers, maybe the fact that fluorescent bulbs also contain poisonous Mercury will do the trick. The waste from traditional fluorescent lights reek havoc on our environment, entering our soil and making their way to our water sources – contaminating our food sources and then entering us through the food chain.

We at S-Tek are trying to do our part to educate those we serve about alternate power sources and renewable energy available and help our environment in the process. Please give us a call today for more energy saving options from S-Tek at 864-888-1620 or purchase online here.

Residential Grid Tie/Off Grid Microhydro Electric Project

Wonder what S-Tek Greenline has been doing? We’ve been hard at work on our local residential microhydro electric project! To keep everyone in the loop we wanted to share a bit of the process and would love to discuss ways our newest green energy division can help you reduce your power consumption. Here’s an in-depth look at materials, scope of work, and wireframe project renders.

Scope of Work 

  • Phase 1: Acquire forestry permission for generator house placement, apply for project permit, apply for net metering interconnection (BREC), excavating for penstock construction, generator house construction, generator placement.
  • Phase 2: Wiring from the generator to the house utilizing 1700’ (2 strings) 1/0 copper wire transmitting DC, purchase and mounting all components and battery box construction. 
  • Phase 3: Interconnection of all components, grid interconnection (net meter), wiring and battery setup, system checks for wiring and water source preparations.

The sketch details how we are using the elevation from the lakeside to power the generators. Water movement hits the turgo wheel causing the generator to rotate. Rotation of the generator = POWER!
