Reducing Energy Consumption in Buildings
Buildings today are the heaviest consumers of natural resources and account for a significant portion of the greenhouse gas emissions that affect climate change, contributing to 39% of the overall energy consumption in the United States. Taking this into consideration is particularly important when it comes to construction of new buildings or major renovations of older ones. To this end, Eaton offers a broad range of energy efficient and environmentally-friendly electrical solutions that can help a building go green and qualify for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) credits through the U.S. Green Buildings Council (USGBC®). Eaton’s Electrical Group also offers many other sustainable products and services.
