COOPERSBURG, PA—Light control manufacturer Lutron Electronics has opened a Washington, D.C. Experience Center. The new 3,100-square-foot Experience Center is located just minutes from the U.S. Capitol and features an expandable line of Lutron light control products presented in a fully functional and versatile commercial office. The center includes an open office mock-up with cubicles, a workroom, a private office, a conference room, and a training space that can host up to thirty people. The Experience Center provides visitors the opportunity to experience and learn about a wide variety of product applications including control of high-efficacy lighting sources, sustainable light control options, and daylight harvesting strategies.
“We are particularly excited about the opportunity for people to walk away from the Experience Center with a clear understanding of how simple light control strategies can save up to 60 percent of the lighting energy in a space, increase employee productivity and comfort, and enhance the flexibility of a single room or an entire building,” said Ed Blair, vice president and general manager of Lutron’s Commercial Solutions Business.
