If you haven’t upgraded your home’s lighting to Wi-Fi enabled controls via your smart phone or iPod you may be in need of additional controls to lessen your electricity load during times when you are out of the house for extended periods of time. Whether your vacations last two days or a month many people feel more secure knowing that a timer can reduce their energy costs while giving the perception to outsiders that the home is occupied.
Just 315 days until General Electric celebrates their 100th anniversary. Here is a brief timeline of events:
- March 25th, 1912 – the time capsule was buried at the future home of GE Lighting’s office complex.
- March 26, 2012 marked the beginning of this celebration starting with the unveiling of a century old time capsule containing historic documents and even 100 year old incandescent light bulbs.
- In April of 2013, GE Lighting will be hosting a celebration at Nela Park in Cleveland, Ohio in honor of this landmark anniversary.
It’s fitting that this time capsule was meant to be unearthed when significant changes in the incandescent light bulb occurred, GE Lighting President and CEO Maryrose Sylvester said in a statement.
