Who is Sunoptics?

Based on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Greenhouse Gas Equivelency Calculator, the potential savings of switching to a Daylight harvesting system are:

# of Lights:    Wattage:     Hours on:      Cost/kW h:            
Approximate electricity savings from Sunoptics installations across the globe:
By 2007, Sunoptics had illuminated 1 billion square feet of daylighted space
throughout the world. If you assume that the average cost of electricity around
the world is approximately $0.12 per kWh as well as an average of 1.2 watts per
square foot of lighting energy usage in industrial / commercial buildings, with
an estimated average of 8 hours per day of annual daylighting potential, the
estimated energy savings from this scenario is equal to, $144,000 per hour,
$1,152,000 per day, and $420,480,000 in annual energy savings.

This scenario is at today's average cost of energy. What is it going to be
tomorrow? The potential for dramatic energy savings in industrial and
commercial properties is enormous through high performance prismatic
daylighting. Take the challenge your self.

Sunoptics is the inventor and worldwide leader in high-performance prismatic daylighting. Since 1978, we have stayed true to our original vision of an energy independent world through daylighting. Sunoptics high performance prismatic skylights optimize lighting performance through patented prismatic lenses that provide the maximum amount of light transmittance while maintaining 100% diffusion which eliminates undesirable hot spots, glare and UV damage to the daylighted space.

Sunoptics is dedicated to creating the finest daylighting environments in which to work, shop, learn, live and play, and we are committed to reducing the world's dependence on fossil fuels for energy. Since 1978, over 1 billion square feet of daylighted space have been installed worldwide using Sunoptics Prismatic Skylights.
