Electronic ballasts in tube lights deliver cost-savings – study
Dec '09
A recent study has revealed that by installing electronic ballasts in place of the existing magnetic ones in the tube lights installed in the ready-made garment factories in Bangladesh, power consumption can be drastically reduced.

This was revealed by the Prokaushali Sangsad Ltd (PSL), a research based organization in a recent study titled 'Energy Saving with Electronic Ballasts in Readymade Garment (RMG) Factories'.

As per the study, it would result in huge cost savings ranging between Tk 58,000-726,000 as per the size of the clothing factory and would also be able to reduce the load on the national power grid to a large extent.

The study noted that the overall savings in energy consumption from replacement of magnetic ballasts with electronic ballasts has been observed to range between 23.74 to 28.54 percent.

Among other benefits it was observed that the electronic ballasts are designed to have a longer life of 30,000 hours corresponding to the magnetic ballasts which can run around 10,000 hours.
