Commercial Lighting Services in Texas

LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. An LED is a semi-conducting device that produces light when an electrical current flows through it. An LED is a light source that has no filament, which is the major component that fails in HID, fluorescent and incandescent light due to vibration and striking of the filament. Solid State Lighting (SSL) is a term sometimes used interchangeably with LED. SSL is an umbrella term encompassing different types of lighting technologies.

Today’s LED lighting products are found in restaurants, offices, parking lots, casinos, theaters, sports arenas and road and street lighting applications. In addition to saving energy, LEDs save money, protect the environment and are easy to maintain. Their long life and aesthetics add to their popularity. LED solutions can produce up to a 90 percent energy savings versus incandescent light sources, while lasting up to 50 times longer. And, unlike fluorescent lamps, LEDs do not contain hazardous materials such as mercury.

Commercial Lighting Retrofit

  • A lighting retrofit is a simple way to make your building’s lighting more energy efficient. Over time, these energy savings can be significant enough to not only pay for the equipment, but may produce a return on investment. Lighting retrofits not only improve the quality of light, but also result in less heat in the building envelope reducing HVAC run times. Couple this with increased longevity of lamp life and possible utility incentives to help reduce project costs, and one can easily see the return of investments can be significant.
  • Rising electricity costs, environmental regulations and concerns about employee wellbeing have businesses, consumers and government agencies looking for an energy strategy that will not only save money, but will add business value into the future. With lighting accounting for more than 25 percent of the energy used in most facilities, increased efficiency can make a big difference to your monthly energy bill.
  • Certain applications can offer Tax breaks and incentives as well.
