Lutron Skylark EcoDim Saves The Planet, One Switch at a Time June 15, 2007

skylark_ecodim.jpgLutron just rolled out its Skylark EcoDim light switch, helping you save 10% of the energy used on lighting, and the best news is that you won’t even notice the difference.

This dimmer is programmed to limit light levels to no more than 90% of full capacity, and if that bugs you, you can switch it over to normal mode for 100% intensity. But you might want to go with that 90% mode, because, believe it or not, it will double the life of your lightbulbs.

More good news is that you probably won’t even notice that missing 10% of the light’s intensity. It’s a little-known fact that if you dim the lights by 10%, it’s imperceptible to the human eye. Now that’s the kind of “going green” that we like: completely painless.
