Money Saving Daylighting
Everest Supply is the exclusive distributor of Ciralight SunTrackerOne skylights in Ontario. We are pleased to inform you that we are running this advertisement in the January 2008 edition of Info-Link.
SunTrackerOne reduces energy bills by bringing sunlight
into a building at intensity levels where daytime electrical lights are no longer needed.
SunTrackerOne uses a state-of-the-art solar powered control
system to track the sun with an array of three mirrors that
effectively reflect sunlight into the building. Light passes
through a thermal barrier, through a light well and a bottom
light diffuser to effectively spread the light throughout
the building. It can reduce energy bills by 15-30%.
Ciralight�s SunTrackerOne daylighting system produces
up to nine times more light than a passive skylight and
distributes light more evenly over a wider area.
Approximately 86% of electricity in traditional buildings
is dedicated to lights, fans and cooling. Compared to
electric lighting, it produces illumination equivalent to 800
watts of fluorescent lighting, or more than a 1,000 watt
metal halide lamp. Since it does not draw any line voltage,
electricity costs for lighting drop to zero during the average
of 10 hours a day that it reflects light indoors.
The combination of lumen performance, low operating
cost, long life cycle and much lower heat generation is what
makes the system so energy and maintenance efficient.
