Many restaurant operators are looking for ways to cut back on utility expenses and invest in energy-efficient technologies but can’t necessarily make huge investments in expensive equipment and machinery. A quick and easy solution for these restaurants is to switch to energy efficient lighting.
Litetronics recently added four new dimmable Micro-Brite cold cathode light bulbs to its product line that are designed to provide a relaxed dining atmosphere and drastically reduce energy costs. The 11-watt BR30 (available in 2250K and 2850K), 8-watt R20, and 15-watt post light with a GU24 base all reduce energy costs by up to 85% when replacing incandescent bulbs, which helps increase the bottom line. Compared to heavy equipment and machinery, Micro-Brite light bulbs are a low-cost alternative for restaurant operators to go green.
Even more impressive is that all four new Micro-Brite cold cathode bulbs are dimmable down to 5% of light output on standard wall dimmers, so no additional equipment is necessary. They dim smoothly, just like incandescent bulbs, to enhance the dining experience by creating the right mood with soft, warm lighting. Micro-Brite bulbs have familiar shapes and bases that fit in existing fixtures, so switching out incandescent bulbs with Micro-Brite bulbs is a breeze. With Micro-Brite cold cathode bulbs’ superior dimming performance and familiar shapes, restaurant operators won’t have to sacrifice performance or décor to lower their utility bills.
The money saved on utilities by using Micro-Brite cold cathode light bulbs can then be invested in other energy efficient equipment, such as water heaters and kitchen appliances, which will make the restaurant even more efficient in the future. Micro-Brite cold cathode light bulbs are a quick and easy way for restaurants to start becoming more energy efficient and improving the bottom line with lower utility bills.
