LED Lighting Incentives

by Nicole Stevens

led commercial medical money saveSaving money on your electrical bills every month is great, but what’s even better than not spending money? Making money on your electric bill! How is something like that even possible, you may wonder? Well, thanks to the introduction of new state-of-the-art LED lighting systems, you can now gain incentives while you enjoy your new efficient lighting system.

Lately, power companies have been adopting the plans of giving consumers incentives to make the switch to LED lighting. Some of the major companies, like Duke, have partnered up with Victory Lights as a Trade Ally, which gives business cash incentives for the switch! They also pay for upwards of 75% of the cost of installing the LED lighting system.

Besides the money back incentives given by the power companies, a huge benefit of switching to LED lighting is the money you’ll save in the long run. This is all at no loss of efficiency either, as itactually betters the building for high-efficiency equipment without the shock of a high-priced power bill.

Money is probably the main thing on someone’s mind when it comes to maintaining a well-ran office or place of business, though it isn’t everything. What about a longer lasting impression, maybe an environmental one? A moral incentive that comes along with LED lighting is that of reducing your carbon footprint and not relying on natural resources and operating your business in a greener space.

The best part of all of this? It’s not just one set plan; it can be worked out for the right specifications of your business and its needs. Flexible options, money saving, environment saving, and lucrative, what more could you ask for from your lighting system? Get LED today!

Green Commercial Buildings

by Nicole Stevens

green building car olinaGoing green has become a top priority with most business, big and small, over the years. A successful business knows how to save money, and the best place to start is where the business happens! Green commercial buildings not only save money, but they also help keep our environment clean. But what exactly does that mean and how does it all work? Is it all just some environment-friendly buzz-words or do these green buildings serve a meaningful purpose in our communities? Let’s go over a few facts on green commercial buildings and see what adds up.

Let’s start off with some energy statistics; on average green buildings consume 25% less energy. That’s a 25% deduction off your electric bill already! Alongside energy consumption, green buildings use 11% less water and 19% less in maintenance costs (Green Building Facts, USGBC). On top of saving on energy bills every month, it cuts down on greenhouse gas emissions by a whopping 34%. Saving money and saving the planet come hand in hand in the construction commercial green buildings.

So what exactly makes those changes in consumption so different? There are varying methods but most popular would be solar or wind power. This eliminates the use of fossil fuels, immediately exterminating any  emissions from entering the atmosphere. Solar panels have come a long way in the past few years, becoming more affordable and accessible thus allowing more business to take advantage of solar power. Wind power works mostly the same as solar power and obtains the same outcome.

The best part about building green buildings? It can have all the glitz and glamour of a non-green building without having to cut back on anything but energy usage, at no extra cost to the consumer!  Unlike most “organic” or green items, a green building doesn’t need to cost an arm and a leg to construct. It also has the same amount of build time, if not less in some cases, as a non-green building. In fact, the only difference between a non-green and green building is that one will wind up costing consumers more in the long run, money-wise and earth-wise. A business that makes an earth-conscious decision makes a smart decision every time.

3 Business Needs Solved Through LED Lighting

business led lightsThere are some of reasons, as electricians, we recommend LED lighting over compact fluorescent bulbs (or CFL’s) for your business. The three main reasons we’ll discuss here are Light Quality, Cost Effectiveness, and Environmental Concerns.

Light Quality - LED lights to give off a whiter light than traditional compact fluorescent bulbs- resulting in less strain on your eyes when trying to read or focus. This is such a great benefit to reduce the strain your eyes already undergo during a day of staring at a computer monitor, spreadsheets or measurements. LED provides you with a clearer view of what you are looking at. Compact Fluorescent bulbs cast objects in a yellow glow, and light that is focused in one direction.

Cost Effectiveness - While the upfront purchase price of a LED light bulb is higher than that of traditional CFL’s, this cost pays for itself over the life of the LED bulb. According to one study done by the Environmental website Eartheasy [Source: http://www.eartheasy.com], a LED light would cost $95.95 to run for 50,000 hours while a CFL bulb would cost $159.75 to run for the same period and would have to be replaced about five times during the process. Recognizing these cost savings for your business could make a real dent in your bottom line!

Environmental Concerns - Lower your business’s carbon footprint with LED Lighting! CFL light bulbs contain mercury - a highly toxic metal that poses serious health risks, while LED lights contain no such toxic chemicals or metals. Studies performed by the United States Department of Energy and scientists from Carnegie Mellon both found that LED lights are as efficient to manufacture as CFL lights and LEDs will become even more efficient in the future. With a market that’s rewarding businesses for going green by offering incentives for energy saving methods, LED lighting could benefit your business in more ways than one!

Is a lighting control system right for my business?

led lighting controls nort carolinaCrisp, organized, attractive decor and furnishings are essential elements in making customers feel welcome and comfortable in your business, but too often, the value of attractive, aesthetically pleasing, welcoming lighting has many benefits. Beyond energy savings, a more efficient, greener lighting control system can change everything.

When customers want to sit and stay awhile, get to know you, carry on conversations, remember your business and want to come back - lighting is almost always a factor.

A thoughtful lighting plan creates and encourages a pleasant and inviting atmosphere. It also generally enhances your customer's experience of spending time in your environment. Among other things, it leads to better employee productivity, helps reduce operating expenses, and makes for an all around better environment. All these factors add up to a more profitable business for you.

The right lighting in a retail establishment draws in a greater number of customers and helps keep those customers in the store for longer periods of time. Factors to keep in mind when creating a business lighting environment include choosing the right mood inducing colors and specific types of light sources to positively affect the appearance of products. Lighting factors go hand in hand with the right music to create an environment that appeals to people’s senses. In fact, some customers are so sensitive that the wrong lighting and music puts them in an instant rush to leave.

For example, overly harsh lighting makes certain items of clothing appear cheaply made, or accentuates minor flaws that would otherwise be of little concern to buyers. Consider how less appealing items of clothing in a gas station appear to you compared to items in a boutique or specialty store.  Beyond the “cheap factor” - your general environment scheme should include creative use of placement, include accent lighting, and make your establishment feel interesting and inviting to your customers.

Proper lighting conjures up most any effect you’re looking for to accentuate your products and appeal to the clientele you’re trying to draw. Proper lighting also benefits your employees (and your bottom line). Contact Victory Lights today and let us take your lighting to the next level.
