California is one of the most progressive states when it comes to renewable energy. And its goal is for all electricity in the state to come from carbon-free sources over the next 2-3 decades. Illuminated signs can also be a part of California’s Clean Energy Project. This article will talk about how lighted signs can help your business meet clean energy goals.
Decorative and practical, LED-lit signs are a great way to meet solar goals. This type of signage makes branding and promotional messages easy, as well as provides useful information such as hours of operation or contact details.
LED-Lit signs use much less energy than traditional incandescent lights, oftentimes using as much as 75% less energy. LEDs can also save you in replacement costs because they can last 25 times longer than regular incandescent lighting.
Electronic Illuminated Signs
Electronic illuminated signs are a special type of LED or digital sign that displays things such as time & temperature and gas prices. Also, many backlit, monument, pylon, real estate and property signs use electronic illuminated signage.
Because these signs can be powered with electricity created by a nearby solar panel, they can be cost-effective, while also assisting with meeting California’s clean energy goals. In addition, bright, daylight-visible light-emitting diode bulbs provide over 100,000 hours of continuous operation, which outlasts comparable incandescent lamps significantly.
Energy Star Certified Signage
Energy Star signage meets the state’s stringent energy efficiency standards, as they are 18% more efficient than traditional illuminated options. This type of signage uses lightbulbs that are highly efficient and last longer. In addition, this special type of custom signage has cooler running panel tech that is extremely affordable.
If your business already has an illuminated sign, you don’t have to worry about having to find a new one. LED retrofitting can be done on almost all types of existing signs, allowing them to operate more efficiently and for longer periods of time. In a nutshell, they use less energy overall.
Green Fabrication Processes
Dave’s Signs provides the highest quality signage displays and we reduce our carbon footprint through our company-wide green initiatives. By using green fabrication processes and materials whenever possible, we continue to reduce the environmental impact of our work.
For example, Dave’s Signs’ acrylic lightboxes are green and made of 100% post-consumer recycled acrylic plastic. The acrylic material in them is heated to high temperatures to form a uniform sheet that is cut into shape. This process creates very little waste. Additionally, it allows us to use only the amount of material necessary for each sign, thereby reducing our environmental impact even more.
Also, for any paint products used in the restoration of lit and unlit signs, we partner with <> for our customers and minimize waste of paint and any other substances used in the sign manufacturing process.
