There is one easy shift you can make that will definitely save you energy and money: a clothes line. Did you know that clothes dryers use a […]
Dee”s was able to step in and fix the new lights at the new bus stop/pull off so that they work as they ought to. Following manufacturer”s instructions, the lights were installed along Main St (including the bus stop), but were incorrectly set. This resulted in the town”s attractive (and pricey) new streetlights not working […]
We recently helped a local business go green with rooftop solar panels. The panels and racking on Hand Motors in Manchester were installed by Hand Energy, and Dee’s did the power wiring that goes from the panels to the utility connection power. The photo above is the section on the sales building, and there are […]
We routinely recommend Compact Florescent Lightbulbs (CFLs) when electricity savings are important and light quality is not. They are improving the color of the light emitted, however, and with the demise of the incandescent bulb, we expect there will be many more CFLs use in the coming years. However it is no small matter when […]
“I’m no eco-warrior. There are so many hare-brain environmental schemes out there and in the whisky industry that just don’t work or are simply PR exercises. This, though, was a very interesting concept that made good business sense, ” says Bruichladdich’s owner Mark Reynier

If you don’t need all those watts every time you turn on a light, why use them? The extra light only benefits the power companies. Turn off what you don’t need, and, with either Lutron or Leviton lighting controls, you can do it with striking good looks. Beneath the elegant surface lies an advanced technology that’s all digital and exceptionally easy to operate.
Electrical bills and energy consumption can be reduced, too, in commercial settings. Whether you operate a retail shop, a workshop, a service business or an industrial facility, you only need to convert the ballasts and bulbs on your commercial fluorescent lights to have two-stage lighting. Then you can use a lower level when that”s suitable, […]
Compact fluorescents are great, and much more efficient than incandescent bulbs, but there’s something even better on the horizon: LED lights. In fact, you have probably already seen traffic lights that use high-lumen Light Emitting Diodes, which consume a tenth of the electricity of an incandescent bulb with a red filter.
Replacing regular incandescent light bulbs in your lamps and ceiling fixtures can really add up! In addition, new compact fluorescent lights last far longer than incandescent bulbs. It’s a win-win situation. Look at the savings detailed at energystar.gov. Energy Star qualified CFLs use only 1/3 of the energy of a standard incandescent bulbs to provide […]
