LEDs Cut Lighting Costs by Over 80%

The U.S. Department of Energy has determined that LED’s save energy and money because they use at least  80% less energy  and last 25 times longer than incandescent lighting.1 Unfortunately, many companies are still paying the maximum price for their lighting-related energy consumption. On top of that, companies that haven’t switched to LED lighting are missing out on potential rebates and tax incentives that are currently available.

LED Retrofits Save Energy and Money

LED retrofit solutions are available for a variety of venues, including homes, offices, warehouses, factories, and outdoor lighting such as parking lots. The high efficiency and directional nature of LED’s makes them ideal for industrial purposes, especially in areas where the lights are on 24/7.2 With Contemporary Energy Solutions, clients typically recoup their investment in LED retrofits within 6-36 months.3 Since LEDs can last for several years, companies can quickly begin saving money on lighting-related energy consumption!

What Can LED Retrofits Do for You?

Since LED retrofits reduce lighting-related energy consumption by over 80%, companies that switch over to LEDs see tangible savings year after year. For example, M-Tek Inc is an automotive manufacturer in Manchester, TN. They replaced 214 Metal Halide light fixtures with 214 LED high bay lights. As a result, they now save over $40,000 annually compared to what they were paying before the switch. The environmental impact of M-Tek’s switch to LEDs was that 377 tons of CO2 emissions were displaced per year, which is the equivalent of planting 114 acres of trees per year!4

There are several case studies from previous CES clients that highlight the economic benefit of improving your lighting system with an LED retrofit. To see more case studies for companies like yours, CLICK HERE.
