Energy Saving Benefits of Solatube

October 17, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

On April 22, 2012 Solatube International Inc., the worldwide leading manufacturer of Tubular Daylighting Devices (TDDs), joined the Earth Day celebration, “Mobilize the Earth,” and they continue to support it throughout the year by changing the way people think about utilizing daylight and caring for the environment.

Solatube International President Robert E. Westfall Jr. was quoted in Green Builder Magazine as saying, “Earth Day is a great day to educate and remind ourselves about what is going on with our environment and what we are doing to protect it. Our company has always been involved with Earth Day activities and events, but more importantly, we take the principles of this movement and apply them all year long. The most important thing to remember is to keep moving forward. We need to continue learning about and understanding ways we can improve our efforts to go green and live every day as if it is Earth Day.”

In fact, according to Green Builder Magazine, Solatube International Dealers installed enough products just on Earth Day 2011 alone to reduce over 17 tons of carbon emissions for the year!

Solatube International is best known for its line of Tubular Daylighting Devices (TDDs), called Solatube Daylighting Systems, which captures natural light from an exterior dome, transfers it down a highly reflective tube and diffuses the light into interior spaces.

Architects and construction professionals are learning the cost and energy saving benefits of green design. Solatube’s Daylighting Systems have been used in numerous LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified projects and the Company is continuously pushing the envelope in terms of daylighting design and technology.  More school and government daylighting projects are becoming popular and Solatube is working with project teams throughout North America to encourage the adoption of sustainable and eco-friendly building practices.
