Green Meeting Tip of the Week

Save money on your electrical costs by choosing a robust low-energy lighting package for your main stage or exhibit booth. Your electrical requirements will be reduced significantly: The more LED and HID units your AV provider is able to substitute into your lighting scheme, the less power you will need.

In venues where electricity is charged by the watt or service size, this can amount to thousands of dollars in savings. SAMPLE: For a 36 light system using conventional 575-1000 watt fixtures, your power needs (100amps 3phase 120/208volt) would average about $1000.00. For the same system in LED, your power needs ((3) 20amp 120volt outlets) would average about 225.00. Please note that these charges may vary wildly depending on the venue--but you get the idea.
