Solatube International Celebrates Earth Day 2013 by Harnessing the Sun’s Rays with Daylighting
Date:4/15/2013

Vista, CA (PRWEB) April 15, 2013

Solatube International Inc., the worldwide leading manufacturer and marketer of Tubular Daylighting Devices (TDDs), will join the Earth Day celebration, “The Face of Climate Change,” on Monday, April 22, and continue to support it throughout the year by changing the way people think about utilizing daylight and caring for the environment. Earth Day, organized annually by Earth Day Network, is the largest civic observance in the world with more than 1 billion people participating.

With the introduction of its new Solatube Smart LED System, the company offers homeowners the chance to save up to 94 percent in energy lighting savings. It works by harnessing the sun’s (free) daylight during the day and transitioning to cost- and energy-efficient LED lighting at night.

Every Earth Day, Solatube Daylighting Systems help turn off the lights in homes and buildings across the United States. Making the “switch” not only saves energy, but also reduces thousands of tons of carbon emissions. On Earth Day 2012 alone, Solatube International Dealers installed enough products to reduce over 17 tons of carbon emissions for the year.

Solatube International is best known for its unique line of Tubular Daylighting Devices (TDDs), called Solatube Daylighting Systems, which utilize advanced technology to capture natural light from an exterior dome, transfer it down a highly reflective tube and diffuse the light into any interior space. The company offers a full line of energy-saving products, including Solar Star Attic Fans, a line of solar-powered attic ventilation fans that utilize the sun’s energy to reduce a home’s energy consumption by properly ventilating attic space and reducing strain on heating and air conditioning systems (they are also eligible for a 30 percent Federal Tax Credit). Solatube International also has a full line of daylighting products for commercial use.

In addition to daylighting and attic ventilation, there are numerous ways people can get involved in Earth Day, including:

  •     Attend an Earth Day event
  •     Organize an Earth Day event
  •     Pledge an Act of Green
  •     Sign the Earth Day petition
  •     Join an Earth Day campaign

Homeowners, as well as design and construction professionals, have learned the benefits of green design, including daylighting, which is a major cost- and energy-saver for new structures and retrofit projects. Solatube Daylighting Systems have been used in numerous LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified projects and are specified in dozens of commercial buildings awaiting certification or in the design or construction phases.
