Energy Efficient Lighting Upgrades & Retrofits

Energy Efficient Lighting Technology

It's a common question, but the answers are compelling for any business owner:

  • Lighting is the largest line item in any commercial electricity bill, accounting for about 32% of total electric energy costs. You can have immediate impact in cost reduction switching to energy efficient lighting.
  • New technology and rising energy costs have made these upgrades and retrofits pay back more rapidly today than ever before.
  • Quality of light is a major driver of employee productivity and aesthetics for customers — light level, distribution, color and glare reduction all need to be managed.
  • Many areas also have energy efficient lighting utility incentives that can help defray investment in new lighting systems.
  • Tax Credits for Energy Efficiency, associated with the Energy Policy Act (EPAct) of 2005's accelerated deduction tables are significant — savings range from 30-60 cents/square foot. There are also federal mandates calling for the phase-out of older lighting technology, so new equipment will need to be installed.
  • The environmental and green advantages are popular with customers and employees, because a typical lighting installation will significantly reduce CO2 emissions.
  • There's no need for a large initial cash outlay — third-party financing allows for payments to be made directly out of accrued savings in utility bills!
