Sunoptics High Performance Prismatic Skylights have been installed in several hundred million square feet of buildings worldwide. These skylights have the potential of replacing over 500 megawatts of electrical lighting energy during a utilities' peak load hours. According to a recent study by Heschong Mahone Group, Inc., a leading expert in daylighting engineering and design, if the U.S. retrofitted all existing buildings that it makes sense to daylight, the potential peak load reduction would equal 20,000 megawatts. That's like replacing the energy produced by more than 40 coal fire energy plants.
