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!

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.
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!

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.
