Light control manufacturer Lutron Electronics has been tapped to provide lighting control systems in the United States Capitol. Lutron’s Ecosystem technology will be installed in the offices of the U.S. Senate Energy & Natural Resources Committee, U.S. Senate & Environmental & Public Works Committee and also in the offices of individual senators who comprise the committees.
Lutron’s Ecosystem is a lighting control solution which includes daylight sensing, occupant sensing, dimming and personal control. The system senses changes in lighting needs based on the amount of natural light entering the building throughout the day to improve productivity and to reduce energy costs. The installation of Ecosystem is expected to provide total lighting energy savings up to 60%.
