2T12 to T8 Efficiency Upgrades Explore the Difference between T12 & T8Common Misconceptions about UpgradingEstimated Energy SavingsRetrofit ExamplesUpgrade IncentivesUniversal Product Offerings
3T12 vs. T8 Ballasts T12 Ballasts: Before: T12’s installed Older technology.Majority of T12 lamp production was phased out in July 2012.Primarily magnetic ballasts.Magnetic T12 ballast production was phased out in July 2010.Heavy and large.Widely used in warehouse, retail, and office applications.Before: T12’s installed
4T12 vs. T8 Ballasts T8 Ballasts: After: Upgraded to T8’s Higher efficiency than T12 ballasts.Electronic design makes them lighter and more compact.Quieter operation.Instant on with no warm-up time.Can lower energy costs.Wide variety of applications.After: Upgraded to T8’s
5T12 vs. T8 Ballasts Why Upgrade from T12’s to T8’s? T12 Ballasts are Inefficient.Retrofitting to T8’s can save up to 40% off your current energy costs.The energy savings often quickly pay for the cost of the upgrade.T12 Magnetic ballasts generate significant amounts of heat.Magnetic ballasts lose energy in the form of heat, which adds to air conditioning costs.Upgrades improve lighting quality.Improves light output and color quality.Eliminates flickering and buzz that T12’s can cause.Makes your building look better/feel newer.Leads to increased productivity.Legislation mandated the phase out of the majority of T12 lamp production effective July 2012.Lamps will be less available and more costly.
6Misconceptions about Upgrading “Energy upgrades are not in the budget.”The answer is in the utility bill! This is operating budget money, not capital improvement money – you can afford to do this!“Plenty of incentive dollars are available. I’ll wait until next year.”Delaying energy-efficient upgrades will cost you another year of energy savings.Incentive dollars are first-come, first-served. They may not be available when you make your decision, but they are available now. (check with local utilities)“I don’t know where to start...”Universal can help!Universal is part of the Panasonic group of companies with global presence and experience. Let our experience work for you!
7Energy Efficiency Makes Sense Did you know…National Lighting Bureau estimates there are as many as 500 million T12s still in place.Upgrading to T8 ballasts can lower energy consumption by up to 40%!Think of how much energy would be saved if everyone upgraded their lights to T8’s.As a result of DOE regulations, almost all T12 fluorescent lamps will be phased out in July of 2012.Upgrade to T8’s now and get ahead of the curve.“Is my building a candidate for lighting upgrades?”Look up! If you see incandescent lights (standard, flood, or halogen) or T12’s, your building is due for a lighting retrofit.
8Estimated Energy Savings T8 ballasts can provide significant watt reduction compared to T12 systems.The Chart Below identifies some of the savings potential with T12 to T8 retrofit, keeping the number of lamps the same:Existing SystemHigh Efficiency Electronic SystemF34T12 LampsF32T8 LampsF28T8 LampsLamp QuantityPower (Watts)Energy Savings1442519212327448264331311873456553414896528464
9Annual Utility Savings: T12 to T8 RetrofitRetrofit Energy Saving Equations:Energy Savings = Existing Wattage – New WattagekW Savings = Total Energy Savings ÷ 1,000kWH Savings = (kW Savings) x (Annual Operating Hours)Annual Utility Savings:Energy Savings (Watts)x Annual Operating Hoursx Utility rate ($/kWH)1000 (for conversion of units)= Annual Utility Savings ( $’s) per Fixture
11Universal’s website features an “Energy Incentive Programs” Link: Upgrade IncentivesBecause of the current legislation impacting T12 lamps and ballasts, many State and Local incentives are available to help you with the cost of retrofitting.Universal’s website features an “Energy Incentive Programs” Link:A few of the examples of new Incentives for T8 Upgrades ...California: Burbank Water & Power – up to $2,000 grant towards recommended retrofits.Massachusetts: MassSAVE Commercial Retrofit Program – Rebates of $10-35 per reduced-wattage fixture. MassSAVE Commercial Retrofit Program – Rebates for Daylighting and Occupancy Sensors up to $30-$85 per control.

13Backed by 5 year warranty when operated at 75° C max case temperature. Linear Fluorescent: T8 Instant StartUniversal offers some of the most efficient linear fluorescent ballasts in the industry for maximum energy savings.Available in high efficiency HE normal (.88), EL low (.77), and HEH high (1.18) ballast factor versions.Instant Start technology for continuous operation: maximizes energy savings for long cycle operations.“True” Parallel Lamp operation: Independent lamp operation simplifies troubleshooting. Lamps stay lit if one lamp fails, preventing fixtures from going dark and replacing lamps unnecessarily.THD < 10%.Lamp will auto-restrike as a standard feature allowing replacement of lamps without recycling power.Anti-striation control for better light quality when using energy saving lamps.Universal input voltage, installer friendly.Because these ballasts are CEE and NEMA Premium compliant they may qualify for utility incentives.Backed by 5 year warranty when operated at 75° C max case temperature.
14Linear Fluorescent: T8 Programmed Start Same benefits as Instant Start plus ... Smart Start!Available in high efficiency HE normal (.88) and EL low (.71) ballast factor versions. Coming soon is HEH high (1.18) ballast factor.Programmed start models feature a “soft start” technology making them the perfect choice for high-cycling applications including those involving occupancy sensors.Programmed Start ballasts are designed to quickly pre-heat lamp cathodes up to their optimum starting temperature and ignite the lamps quickly (within 700 milliseconds).Filament cut out on HE and HEH models for instant start level efficiency.The quick ignition results in long lamp life without the typical long delay during turn-on.Smaller “B” can size (1.0” x 1.5” x 9.5”) for the two lamp version.RoHS compliant.Same 5 year warranty as instant start plus 3-year warranty for HEH modules when operated at 90° C case temperature.

21Energy ManagementInstall DEMANDflex ballasts with DCL Controls for maximum system energy savings.DEMANDflex™ ballasts can be “tuned” so that their operating power level is anywhere in the range of 50% to 100% of its full rating.The tuning process uses temporary controls connected between the circuit breaker and ballasts on a lighting circuit.This tuning process can be done during installation or any time afterwards.The tuning process can be repeated if power and light level adjustments are necessary.Tuning down the lighting power 10% to 15% saves a significant amount of energy and may not even be noticed by the occupants.Install the same as standard program rapid start ballasts. No control wires necessary. Standard mounting footprint. Same wiring.High efficiency programmed rapid start operation exceeds CEE and NEMA Premium T8 requirements.Compatible with occupancy sensors.Power level tuning programs the ballast factor for reduced power use. Programmed at circuit level.Universal input.
