Improved Lighting Can Improve Safety, Production, And Money Spent
Lighting can account for more than 25% of energy usage in a commercial or industrial building, which represents a significant portion of overhead costs to a business. Perhaps your facility has older lighting technology such as fluorescent bulbs, and this equipment has to operate more than 16 hours in a day, or maybe your building has changed its layout and requires lighting optimization for specific work zones. Any company with outdated equipment looking to reduce costs should take advantage of modern advances in LED lighting technology which can mean a big difference in your monthly utility bill. This involves replacing outdated equipment with energy-efficient, modern units and the long-term benefits outweigh the short-term expenditure. LED lighting is quickly replacing all other types of commercial light sources such as fluorescent or incandescent bulbs. They last considerably longer, provide better quality light, cost significantly less to maintain, and are extremely energy efficient.

Benefits of LEDs
Recent studies show that energy-efficient lighting retrofit projects represent the most significant return on investment (ROI) of any single technology project with an average ROI of 45%! Lighting upgrades like LEDs, pay for themselves over the lifetime of the system through reduced energy and maintenance costs.
Depending on your location and the type of retrofit project you decide on, there are many tax incentives and utility rebates available when you replace outdated technology with energy efficient options.
Improved lighting can also improve facility safety, reduce work time lost to employee vision problems, and other issues caused by poor lighting.
By reducing your energy footprint and therefore the environmental impact of your operations, you demonstrate corporate social responsibility which helps increase positive customer experience. Also, investments in energy efficiency can increase the value of your property and potential resale value of your asset.
