Overview

Daylighting is critical for optimal human performance. In fact, until electric lighting was invented, our only means of illumination was daylight and fire. Today, we’ve created artificial caves – and then pay a small fortune to light them with artificial light. Why, when there’s plenty of FREE daylight on the other side of the roof deck?! Remember, the cheapest watt is the one never used!

While there are many ways to bring in natural daylight, including passive skylights and light tubes, the SunTracker Active Skylight brings
in up to 300% more daylight for 2-3 times longer every day.

Our SunTracker Active Skylight features a Solar Powered GPS Motor under the dome. This keeps three highly reflective
aluminum mirrors in perfect alignment with the sun throughout the day to illuminate buildings with abundant, free, healthy, fully diffused, natural daylight.

This is true off-the-grid lighting providing all the benefits of natural daylight.

Benefits of SunTrackers

  • Save on energy costs by shutting off electric lights during daytime hours up to 10.5 hours a day.
  • Reduce your energy use during peak hours when utility rates are the highest.
  • Save on reduced air-conditioning costs required to offset heat created by electric light fixtures.
  • Abundant Daylight levels throughout the day allow lights off for longer hours of the day.
  • Save on repair costs associated with the maintenance of electric light systems.
  • Natural light provides a safer, more productive work environment.
  • Daylighting improves retail sales by 10%-40% - Click HERE to learn more!

  • Warranted fully for 10 years - all components!
  • Certified 30 year life cycle!
  • Made in America!
  • Daylighting improves productivity equal to at least 20 TIMES the energy savings! Click HERE to learn more!

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) estimates that people nowspend between 90 and 95 percent of their time in buildings. This has a strong adverse effect on people’s sleep patterns, mood, memory, and overall health. This is why they offer a course on their website about how to receive the most benefits of natural light with daylighting systems.

By optimizing their use of natural light with various daylighting strategies, companies see an increase in worker productivity and improvements in both sales and customer retention. Employees who work in environments where they are exposed to daylight are more alert, have more positive attitudes, and use fewer sick days. Daylight has also been proven to make spaces appear cleaner and more attractive, which enhances the shopping experience and boosts customer loyalty.

Savings

How much will our SunTracker Active Skylights save?

This depends on how many days a week your New Jersey facility is open and what type of lighting you will be turning off 9-10.5 hours every day.

As an example, if you have a 10,000 sq ft warehouse that is currently lit with 24 458W Metal Halide High Bays, and you are open for 5 days a week, with 8 holiday days off each year, you will save about $3,756 annually on energy alone and about another $205 per month in maintenance and HVAC savings, this equals about $6,216 in annual savings. But if your facility is operational 7 days a week, those savings become $8,735 every year. For 30 years!

More importantly, your facility will be stunning with abundant, fully diffused daylight all day long. And the productivity gains from natural daylight are worth 10-20 times the energy savings.

If you’ve already upgraded to LED High Bays at 150W, which we highly recommend – with Daylight Harvesting Dimming Controls – the savings become $3,415 annually. However, the lighting quality all day will be  guaranteed to be tremendous while the annual savings with all 3 technologies will be significantly improved regardless of how many days your facility is open.

We will provide, for free, a complete ROI analysis for your unique facility as part of our comprehensive service.

We also provide, upon request and at no cost, a complete Dialux Photometrics that conservatively predicts how much daylight you can expect to see in your facility.
