Companies updating lighting technology benefit through cost savings and rebates
Per a US Department of Energy report, the amount of LED installations increased over 400% from 2014-2016 (215 million units – 874 million units). Despite these overwhelming numbers, the US Department of Energy stated that only 12.6% of business light fixtures used LED lights in 2016.
Another report by the Department of Energy outlined what businesses stood to gain from retrofitting their light fixtures to LED systems. Their list included:
1) An Enormous Cost Savings over Time
2) Improved Light Quality
3) More Reliable and Efficent Lighting
4) Cheaper Replacement Costs and Often Initial Cost Than Old Style Lighting
5) Better Positioning of USA-based Industries That Produce High End LED Lighting
