Energy Efficient Lighting

Posted In: Green Restaurant

We are installing energy efficient light bulbs, 85% of all the lighting at Taranta will be energy efficient, we installed the Maxlite Spiral Medium E26, and 5 Watt – Warm White – Frost – A19 – Dimmable – Micro-Brite Cold Cathode Fluorescent – Litetronics MB-501D. The restaurant industry is the # 1 consumer of electricity in the US retail sector, and over 70% of this electricity comes from fossil fuels: coal, gas, and petroleum, which contribute to global warming and endanger human health. Using energy efficient lights at Taranta can siginifically decrease our restaurant’s energy consumption.
