The MAX Option: Great office lighting. 32% less energy.

Architects, designers and building owners want to know: "How can we reduce energy use to an absolute minimum while maintaining light levels?"

Énergie has the answer: Special versions of our highly efficient Enthuse, Enform, and Enspire luminaires that deliver remarkable performance at a price competitive with lesser lighting products.

The MAX Option equips fixtures with a single 26-watt T5 lamp and lower ballast factor (.95) ballast for the greatest possible energy savings – curbing consumption by as much as 32% compared to typical direct/indirect systems.

Because Enthuse, Enform, and Enspire with the MAX Option combine 98.7% luminaire efficiency with exceptional photometric control, they use just 0.43 watts per square foot to deliver 35 footcandles of soft, comfortable, glare free illumination at the work surface. So you can significantly reduce energy use without sacrificing the lighting effectiveness people depend on.
