St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated annually on March 17th around the world. While electrical products have no particular association with St. Patrick’s Day, people often use electrical products to celebrate the holiday. For example, many people decorate their homes, offices, and public spaces with green lights or other green-colored decorations, and some cities even dye their rivers green. While we don’t have giant jugs of green dye, we do offer green lighting solutions & initiatives to promote energy-efficient lighting solutions that reduce the environmental impact of lighting while also saving energy and money.
With Western Canadian weather still experiencing freezing temperatures, enough of our energy usage already goes into heating, so why not use some methods to cut down on energy and go green? From the electrical experts at E.B. Horsman, here are energy saving ideas to help you go green and save your gold for the next rainbow!
The most common types of green lighting initiatives include:
1. LED lighting: LED (Light Emitting Diode) lighting is highly energy-efficient and has a longer lifespan than traditional incandescent and fluorescent lighting. LED lights use less energy and produce less heat, which helps to reduce energy costs and carbon emissions.

2. Lighting controls: The use of lighting controls such as occupancy sensors, timers, and dimmers can help to reduce energy consumption by automatically turning off lights when they are not needed or adjusting lighting levels based on natural light.

3. EV charging green initiatives can help to reduce the environmental impact of transportation and promote sustainable practices. These initiatives can benefit both the environment and EV owners by reducing carbon emissions and promoting the use of renewable energy sources.

4. Green building certification programs: Green building certification programs such as LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) encourage the use of energy-efficient lighting solutions as part of a larger effort to promote sustainable building practices.
Green lighting initiatives are gaining popularity as people become more aware of the environmental impact of lighting and seek ways to reduce their energy consumption and carbon footprint. These initiatives can benefit both the environment and businesses and individuals by reducing energy costs and improving sustainability.
Wishin’ you a wee bit of fun and a lot ‘o’ luck on St. Patricks Day!
