1. Reduce Your Electric Bill
Realize immediate 50-70% savings on your lighting energy costs.
2. Improved Lighting
Customer’s typically realize dramatically improved light levels when converting from 400 watt metal halide HID high bays or low bay fixtures, commonly found in manufacturing, warehouse and distribution center environments.
3. Additional Savings From Motion Sensors
Because T-5 and T-8 high intensity fluorescents are instant on, we have the ability to add motion sensors in warehouse areas when no one is present. Occupancy sensors dramatically increase your energy savings.
4. Utility Company Rebates and Incentives
AEP Ohio Power, First Energy (Ohio Edison & The Illuminating Company) as well as other utility companies provide rebates for businesses that reduce their lighting energy costs. We can provide details based on your energy utility provider. Some of these programs can be extremely lucrative.
5. IRS Tax Incentives
The IRS EPAct05 tax deduction allows businesses to deduct (accelerated depreciation) 60 cents/psf or the cost of your project, all in the year your project is performed. There are certain restrictions that apply and your project must be certified by a professional engineer or certified electrical contractor who specializes in lighting retrofits and thoroughly understands EPAct requirements.
6. 100% Financing Available
No upfront capital is required, allowing you to pay for your project using the positive cash flow from reduced utility bills.
7. Improved Productivity and Safety For Your Employees
Brighter illuminated facilities contribute to improved productivity, fewer pulling or picking errors in a warehouse environment and a safer workplace for your employees, especially around tow motors and manufacturing equipment.
8. Less Taxing On Air Conditioning System
Since today’s T5 and T8 linear fluorescent high bays operate hundreds of degrees cooler than the metal halide HID fixtures that have been around for years, you’ll save on you’re A/C bills and your employees will enjoy a cooler working environment.
9. No Warm Up Time, Restrike Time Or Annoying Buzzing Noise
10. Quick Payback Period
Most businesses operating more than one shift realize payback periods in as fast as 8-24 months.
