Championing the Green Movement
Whether developing new award-winning energy-efficient street lighting luminaires, partnering with "Green" industry advocates, or simply being a Green spokes-company by occupying one of most energy-efficient factories in Roselle, IL, Sternberg Lighting continues to focus doing our part for a Greener tomorrow. Some of the initiatives we are taking are as follows:
Sternberg’s energy-efficient factory paving the way
Sternberg Lighting’s 150,000 sq/ft factory is built with Solarcrete, an insulated panel wall system designed to save 60 to 100% in heating and cooling energy costs over traditional construction methods.
How do you know if your LED lighting products really perform as promised?
Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), SSL Quality Advocates is a voluntary pledge program whose mandate is to assure that LED lighting is represented accurately as it reaches the market.
Sternberg Lighting is proud to be registered as an SSL Quality advocate, and is committed to delivering quality UNRIVALED™ luminaires according to reported product performance results.
Sternberg Lighting is proud to be an Energy Star partner
ENERGY STAR is united with its partners, manufacturers, retailers and builders, in the pursuit of a common goal - to protect our environment for future generations.
Carbon footprint reduction
All UNRIVALED™ LEDs and circuit boards are 100% recyclable and environmentally friendly, containing no lead, mercury or any other hazardous substances and:
- Significantly reduced energy consumption, requiring less output from power plants.
- Lowers CO2 emissions which contribute to global warming.
- Fully compliant with the RoHS Directive (Restrictions of Hazardous Substances).
Learn about additional energy savings using UNRIVALED™ patent pending Smartlight™ technology, our proprietary dimming system designed to provide an additional 50% energy savings at 60% lumen output.
Whether the project requires a simple single-step dimming solution or an integrated dimming control system capable of multi-functional control of a street lighting system, Sternberg Lighting has a suitable solution to fit your energy-savings needs.
Please consult our factory for a detailed description of Smartlight™ Basic, Standard and Deluxe options.
An important consideration for shopping mall parking lots, sports complexes and other venues hoping to reduce energy costs by using lower light levels at off-peak hours.
Reduction in maintenance costs
With approximately 140,000 hours of lamp life, LED technology is designed to last 16 years or longer (operating 12 hours per day, 7 days per week). There are no lamps, ballasts or capacitors to be replaced or maintained. By comparison, metal halide lamps typically last 12,000 to 15,000 hours and high pressure sodium lamps typically last 20,000 to 24,000 hours. As a result, normal HID streetlighting maintenance expenses and associated disruption of traffic is virtually eliminated.
