How much can I save on my lighting energy costs with your services?
How does the no money out-of-pocket funding work?
Is there a guarantee that I will save that energy?
How long will it take for me to see a drop in my energy bills?
How do you calculate my savings?
The formula for calculating lighting energy is this: Watts x Hours of Use x Cost of Energy ÷ 1000. The one variable in the predictions is the hours of use. We use data sourced from your employees to tell us the exact hourly use of the lights in each area. These hours are clearly displayed in our proposal so you know what hour usages we used in our calculations. Assuming these hours are constant (i.e. the same BEFORE and AFTER the project), your savings are going to exactly what we project. If they change–either up or down–if will affect the kWh savings by a direct correlation. Nevertheless, you will still save the wattage and kWh charge on the new lamp over what it would have been with the old one. If occupancy sensors are chosen to be utilized as part of the proposed solution, the hours of operation will decrease, causing greater savings above the projected savings from a decrease in base wattage.
How long do LEDs last?
Why is LED lighting better than traditional lighting?
Do LED lights cause headaches like flourescent lights do?
LEDs do not flicker. However, if you stare at an LED light directly for an extended period of time, this could cause headache.
Are LED lights easy on the environment and recyclable?
What type of warranty is offered on the LEDs?
Where do you source your LED lights?
We strive to work directly with manufacturers that we’ve met face-to-face and who have their offices located in the USA. This type of close relationship with our manufactures allow us to offer direct pricing that cuts out distributor mark-ups. However, our experience in the industry gives us the ability to work with any manufacturer along every step of the supply-chain from direct-to-factory relationships to lighting agents and distributors. As of 2020, we work with over 20 different LED manufacturers.
Who will install the LED lights in my building?
Will our maintenance costs be reduced if we retrofit to LEDs?
We help eliminate the need for much of your lighting maintenance.
What is the average time to complete an LED lighting retrofit?
We completed the largest LED retrofit in the world in Summer 2014 (~35,000 fixtures) and it took us less than four months.
What do you we do with our old light bulbs and ballasts? Are we required by law to recycle them or can we put them in the dumpster?
Of course, you can donate old equipment to a non-profit like Habitat for Humanity ReStore and receive a tax credit.
Do you do new construction or retrofits only?
Do you do residential and commercial?
What types of commercial buildings do you work with?
Do you work in historic buildings?
In what geographic areas do you operate?
We’d really like to come to Australia… Anyone?
