By reducing your energy consumption you will reduce your carbon footprint. A company who recently switched from a 400 metal halide to a T5HO system was able to reduce their CO2 emissions from 185 tons to 98 tons a year.
According to the International Labor Union, quality lighting allows workers to be more productive and create fewer mistakes. In the case of a temporary power outage fluorescent lamps are instant on, as opposed to the 15 minutes metal halides require. This equates to less downtime.
New fluorescent technology means that there is double the lamp life. Also, these fixtures have 6 lamps in them, so when one burns out you still have light. This means there is less depreciation of lighting levels, and therefore more time between lamp changes.
