Title: Energy Self Assessment - Lighting Self Assessment Tool
Primary Authors: United States Department of Agriculture- National Resources Conservation Service
Abstract: The Lighting Energy Self Assessment Tool is designed to estimate your current lighting energy usage based on your inputs and suggest more efficient alternatives when appropriate. This tool incorporates all types of lighting commonly used in agricultural enterprises including incandescent, halogen, mercury vapor, compact fluorescent (CFL), T12 fluorescent, metal halide, T8 fluorescent, high pressure sodium and T5 fluorescent lamps. You will be asked to detail the different types of lights you use and how they are used on your farm. At the end, a detailed report will indicate your baseline energy use and suggest other more efficient technologies that will reduce your lighting costs.
