S-Tek Greenline would like to recognize Rainmaker Ponds & Irrigation as an Upstate business that’s a bit greener (energy efficient) today thanks to LED lighting alternatives. S-Tek recently did an entire office LED retrofit (relamping) project for Rainmaker changing out their old inefficient lights to energy efficient LED lighting.
Project Energy Savings: The old bulbs totaled 1100 Watts, our solution reduced total usage to 235 Watts.
Results: Rainmaker now has a total savings of 845 Watts per hour with LED lighting!
Above Photo Collage: Relamping project for Rainmaker Ponds & Irrigation from S-Tek Greenline. Note total Watts and hours of use between the two lights – traditional flood light = 65W and 2,000 hours compared to the 9.4W and 50,000 hours of the LED replacement.

More about the benefits of sustainability and LED lighting…
The first and most obvious benefit of switching to LED lighting is that they simply use less energy. There are plenty of other reasons, including waste reduction, recyclability, the use of materials & resources and the effect on building and design practices.
LED lighting supports sustainable design in several ways. LED’s uses less energy than most other types of lamps (see comparisons in images above), they lasts longer which means less replacement and reduced waste, LED’s are mercury-free, and can be housed in special luminaires designed for easier disassembly and recycling.

If you haven’t had the privileged to meet Sunny our S-Tek mascot, we invite you to visit our showroom at 820 A By Pass 123 in Seneca. You can also keep up with Sunny here on our site – she’s always making people smile!
In preparation for Christmas, Sunny has traded her Clemson orange for a festive red, white and green Santa hat. She closely watches the office (secretively hoping more clients bring in goodies in for her to sample)!
Recently Sunny tried to help the crew build our NEW railing but as you can clearly see, she ended up completely tangled in stainless steel cable. Sunny learned a valuable lesson…it’s best to leave the install to the professionals!
