We’ll make your warehouse a brighter and your offices a little lighter. We can move your facility away from the old inefficient metal halides to T5 or T8 Hi Bay fixtures, we can help. We specialize in using the latest technology to make your facility energy efficient, and certain facilities can upgrade without having to completely replace their fixtures. Nearly all fluorescent fixtures have retrofit options that increase light levels and reduce wattage by as much as up to 70%! (The fixture the the left is a high bay T5 fixture designed to replace old outdated warehouse lights)
It is true. The majority of lighting system retrofits enjoy less than a single year payback from the lowering of the electrical bills. Once the electrical usage starts to decrease the savings magnify by allowing your electrical bill to fall into lower and lower billing tier levels. This reduces the amount you pay for electricity in addition to lowering the quantity of electricity your business is using. It can be very significant. (The picture to the lower right is an antiquated mercury halide lighting system for high bay warehouses. We can reduce the amount of electricity your warehouse uses by 1/2 or more.)

Lighting retrofits can greatly reduce energy consumption and lower energy bills, while maintaining lighting levels and quality by upgrading lighting components to more efficient and advanced technologies. Upgrading technologies can also offer employees greater control over lighting, allowing for additional energy savings.
Lighting retrofits can improve lighting quality by targeting problem areas with specific design considerations to overcome common lighting issues. Newer technologies also add increased reliability to the lighting system, so fewer short-term lighting-quality issues should arise. These newer technologies often have better lighting-quality characteristics, such as improved color, reduced flicker, greater light output, etc.
Improvements in lighting technologies have led to increased lifetimes for components that will result in fewer failures and lengthen the time between maintenance activities. The implementation of a routine maintenance program in addition to your lighting retrofit will greatly simplify your maintenance practices and reduce the operational costs associated with maintaining your lighting systems.
By consuming less electricity, your facility will help reduce the demand and associated emissions from “off-site” power generation. These harmful emissions include CO2 and other greenhouse gases.
For those facilities served by photovoltaic or other green-power systems, efficient lighting will help limit power demands. Using more efficient lighting will require less power to be generated, stored, and used to accomplish the same tasks, making alternative power systems more economically and technically feasible.

*The maximum current tiered rate for commercial electricity is now 0.35 per kilowatt hour. The more electricity that you use, the more that you have to pay for it. In this example, at the maximum rate, your electrical savings would skyrocket to $14,875.
Using this simple formula you can count out the number of high bay fixtures in your warehouse and simply multiply that number by $111.86 and come very close to your annual electrical savings from an electrical lighting retrofit.
