Saving energy is one of the top priorities in the U.S. right now. Conserving energy within existing buildings is a large opportunity for Philadelphia, which is why the EEB hub is located in the Navy Yard. The EEB hub is a government run group that is partnering with manufacturers to create a plan for implementing energy saving products and techniques throughout the city. Lutron is a partner in that initiative due to the multitude of energy saving products we manufacture. Not only was our first product an energy saving device when it was invented 50 years ago, but our company was founded just up the road in the Lehigh Valley. Lutron’s research and development, corporate headquarters and manufacturing facilities are still located just outside of Philadelphia. We strongly feel that we can manufacture locally and compete globally. While we have many projects that are prominently featured throughout the world, we have also introduced lighting control strategies into buildings throughout Philadelphia, such as the Peco tower, the Philadelphia Airport, Federal Reserve, and JLL corporate headquarters.
