What to Expect

Efficient lighting projects generate a reduction in company power consumption which can result in an electric bill that exceeds 40% savings.

Low-efficiency metal
halide fixture
T-5 lighting uses up to 65%
less power than a halide

With a national emphasis to convert to cleaner and more efficient sources of power consumption, utility companies are providing significant financial incentives to help cover the cost associated with an efficient lighting project. With the federal government also offering tax credits to your business, now is the time to find out the incentives currently available and to conduct an energy audit for the lighting in your facility.

Federal and state energy efficiency funds are helping businesses and institutions save money, increase safety and maintenance benefits and protect the environment. Click on our Incentives page for a list of financial incentives offered in your state.

Money Savings

Replacing old metal halides with new energy efficient T-5 lighting will not only cut the power draw by 50% but also reduce fixture heat output by 50%, therefore reducing the amount of air conditioning that is needed to maintain facility temperatures and reducing your energy costs even further.

Utility Rebate Incentive $35,289.85

Energy Savings

Energy savings are achieved through a combination of replacing the primary working components of light fixtures and/or replacing existing out-of-date fixtures (i.e. halides) with new, state-of-the-art equipment. Additional energy savings can be accomplished by installing occupancy sensors so that lights can be automatically turned off when no one is in an area.

Safety & Maintenance Benefits

By increasing and or having whiter brighter lights in your facility you are creating a safer working environment for your employees. If onsite injuries are reduced workers compensation and insurance premiums go down as well. Monthly maintenance costs are greatly reduced by having new and/or retrofitted equipment. Lighting components are changed much less often resulting in less manpower and less material costs

Installation of energy efficient lighting technology will save an estimated 61 Million kWh over the life of the measures. (The kilowatt-hour (symbolized kWh) is a unit of energy equivalent to one kilowatt (1 kW) of power expended for one hour of time.)

61 Millions kWh is equivalent to:

  • 31,518,693 pounds of coal not burned
  • 4,085,985 gallons of oil not burned
  • 7,365 homes provided with electricity each year

The environmental benefits from such projects are:

  • 125,610 pounds of Sulfur Oxides (Sox) emissions avoided
  • 33,420 pounds of Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) emissions avoided
  • 67,534,003 pounds of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions avoided
