    Lighting

    Light BulbLighting affects many areas in the workplace, including worker productivity and safety. A significant portion of your electric bill can be associated with lighting. It is important to be sure that lighting levels are sufficient for the task, but do not consume any more power than is necessary. Lighting technology is constantly changing and can offer energy savings or increased efficiency. Blue Ridge Electric can assist with all of these areas through established relationships with lighting professionals.

    The following services are available to Blue Ridge Electric Cooperative commercial and industrial customers:

    • Photometric Design to insure indoor and outdoor lighting levels.

    • Efficiency Audit to determine lighting inventory and load anaylsis.

    • Upgrade and retrolift evaluation.

    Outdoor Lighting

    The Shoebox is the most popular industrial fixture and mounts on fiberglass poles at heights of 17, 35 or 40 feet. High Intensity Discharge (HID) Lamp wattages are available from 100 to1000 in Mercury Vapor, High Pressure Sodium and Metal Halide. Monthly charges vary depending on the type, wattage and pole height. The outdoor lighting design is customized to meet the individual industry’s specifications and desired lighting levels.

    Metal Halide HID lamps provide the highest quality of lighting when the ability to see colors is important.

    High Pressure Sodium HID is a popular lamp that provides good coverage for areas where color recognition is not necessary.

    Façade Lighting utilizes Metal Halide lamps in ground-mounted fixtures to accent the front of the industrial building.

    Sign Lighting has become a popular way to let Blue Ridge help show off the industrial facility.
