Georgia Power can provide you with the information and tools you need to gain maximum value for your lighting investment.
Full-range and “step” fluorescent dimming systems can significantly reduce the power delivered to fluorescent lights and can even be activated in response to available daylight for perimeter areas. While fluorescent control systems can be expensive to install, the potential long-term savings are substantial.

T8 Systems (Indoor Lighting)
Even if your indoor lighting system is already retrofitted with energy-efficient core-coil ballasts and “watt miser” lamps, you can still generate additional savings with a T8 conversion. Here’s why:
- T8 lamps and ballasts are much more efficient than standard lamps and ballasts
- T8’s astute use of reflectors, new lenses and “overdriven” ballasts create opportunities for cost-saving delamping
- Four-lamp fixtures can often be retrofitted with three or even two T8 lamps and ballasts and still maintain the same light output
- While T8 equipment requires a higher premium when relamping or reballasting, that expense is offset by energy savings, longevity and reduced maintenance costs
