Lighting retrofit benefits - what are they?

Lighting retrofit benefits - what are they?
At Aztec Electrical we are here to assist your lighting retrofit projects to maximize the short term and long term energy benefits.

Tax Incentives and Rebates
The Energy Trust of Oregon provides cash incentives and rebates for qualifies energy projects. At Aztec Electrical we are a Trade Ally - qualified to help you determine the best lighting project for your home or business that meets the Energy Trust specifications.

Improved Safety
High quality lighting can improve facility safety, reduce quality incidents, improve productivity and increase occupant satisfaction. Newer technologies often have better lighting-quality characteristics, such as improved color, reduced flicker and greater light output.

Reduced Energy Costs
Energy-efficient lighting upgrades represent the highest return on investment (ROI) of any single-technology project, with an average ROI of 45 percent. These upgrades pay for themselves in as little as 2.2 years and the payback continues over the lifetime of the system through reduced energy and maintenance costs.

Improved Performance and Productivity
A recent study found that one in four workers experienced a loss in work time based on vision problems and discomfort caused by poor lighting. The study found improvements in the average office lighting system can result in a 3-5 percent gain in employee productivity.

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint / Social Responsibility
By consuming less electricity, your facility can reduce its electrical load, thus reducing the demand and associated emissions from "off-site" power generation.
