In addition, SES provides its clients access to a complementary network of best in class energy service specialists that can address the full spectrum of non lighting related energy conservation measures (ECM). Our priority is to establish a relationship for the long run with our clients. This philosophy demands that SES bring whatever resources and/or relationships to the table to address the client?s priorities. When appropriate, facilitating introductions to these allied supply and demand side energy efficiency service providers assures the customer direct access to design build expertise in every energy efficiency trade of interest.

SES is the only design build energy efficient lighting contractor in the country with a true national installation footprint. With 10 offices spread throughout the country, SES can co-ordinate lighting retrofits, lighting service and electrical contracting for a client with multiple facilities around the country.

1) Assessment of Customer Needs and Concerns: We take the time to listen to our clients in the process of determining what value SES can bring to the table.

2) Preliminary Feasibility Audits: SES coordinates evaluation of applicable energy conservation measures (ECM) based on the potential scope of savings, costs and basic design parameters for lighting and other ECMs.

3) Facilitate Access to Alternative ECM Service Providers: Based on results of the preliminary ECM feasibility audit, SES will introduce the client to appropriate non-lighting ECM service providers such as supply side specialists, distributed generation engineers, mechanical and HVAC firms, EMS controls specialists, rebate management facilitators etc.

5) Proposals and Reports: This is based on the construction level audit which uses data, graphics, photographs and text to identify and explain all of the recommended lighting retrofit energy conservation measures (ECMs) and costs, energy savings, maintenance savings, and environmental benefits associated with implementing these ECMs.

6) On-Site Field Testing: SES designers install samples of the recommended lighting ECMs to measure actual kW reduction and impact on the quantity and quality of light.

7) Total Turnkey Responsibility: SES manages all aspects of the design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of the lighting/electrical project. This includes procurement of material, implementation of labor, onsite field construction management, and financial and customer project management.

8) Security Lighting Analysis and Enhancements: SES will provide a scope break out of what lighting is required to meet local, state and federal safety codes and IESNA recommended standards.

9) Lighting Maintenance Contacts: SES will provide a proposal to the client for ongoing service of the new lighting system to maximize system performance and savings maintenance.

Lighting News: Green Ballast Daylight Harvesting 
January 11, 2013 by Energy Manager Today Staff



Bronson Sporting Goods has installed Green Ballast‘s patented daylight harvesting fluorescent light ballasts in its new Memphis location. The new ballasts are direct replacements for the existing “standard ballasts.” Each ballast includes a photocell sensor that interacts with daylight harvesting technology, allowing each Green Ballast equipped fixture to:

  • Actively measure the amount of daylight in its coverage area
  • Harvest this daylight and calculate how much fluorescent light is actually needed to provide adequate lighting
  • Adjust the power consumption of the lighting fixture accordingly
Lighting Roundup: Green Ballast Daylight Harvesting

The Broadway Square Building, a twelve-story office building in downtown Kansas City has installed Green Ballast‘s patented daylight harvesting fluorescent light ballasts, replacing the existing standard ballasts.  The new ballasts adjust power consumption for each lighting fixture, while measuring and harvesting available daylight to calculate and provide only the amount of needed electricity for proper lighting. It is a “plug and play” solution and has controls within each ballast. Green Ballast expects lighting consumption costs in the Broadway Square building to be reduced by over 50 percent.
