1. You'll save money and energy.
Lighting accounts for 20-50% of the electricity consumed at a business. LEDs use up to 80% less energy than incandescent bulbs. Combined with the reduced heat output of LED lighting, it’s a winning combination for your business that can even increase the efficiency of your HVAC system. The result is significant cost savings that will deliver a quick return on investment, especially if your business uses lighting for extended periods.
2. Less of your time - and money - will go toward maintenance.
LEDs don't just use energy more efficiently; they also last much longer and are more durable than incandescent and flourescent bulbs. Since they have a lifespan up to 10 times longer than traditional bulbs, your maintenance staff can spend less time replacing bulbs and more time thinking of other ways to improve your space.
3. Your employees (and customers) will thank you.
Quality, efficient lighting not only lowers energy costs, it can influence the way people feel and perform. Improved quality of light has been shown to increase sales, improve student grades, and raise employee productivity. Better visibility also means a safer environment for your employees and customers.
4. It's easy!
A lighting upgrade doesn't need to take a lot of time or require a large upfront investment. The DCSEU has streamlined the process by working with area distributors to offer discounted energy-efficient tube, pin-, and screw-based lighting though the DCSEU Instant Business Rebates program. It's never been easier or more affordable for District businesses to take advantage of savings.
