When the American Reconstruction and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) was passed, it allocated $6.3 billion for state and local governments to make investments in energy efficiency, and required that all manufactured good used in ARRA-funded projects be produced in the U.S. Crestron has reaffirmed its ability to play a key role in qualifying projects for ARRA funding. With scheduling capabilities and an astronomical clock built into every Crestron control system, energy saving opportunities such as load shedding, sweeping unneeded lights off, adjusting HVAC settings during peak hours and unused periods, as well as reducing exterior security lighting are easily achieved. Crestron light and motion sensors plus shade/ drape control deliver intelligent daylight harvesting, and Crestron touchpanels display energy consumption in real time, enabling users to further monitor and manage and energy use. Additionally, Crestron manufactures all of its 1,500 products in Bergen County, NJ.
