I can tell you from personal experience that American Lighting is a patron of the American business frontier. They bring a level of perseverance, determination, adaptation, adjustment, and conditioning to this industry like no other has seen. They recently renovated the Torrey Pines High School gym with T8 Lighting retrofits and new ballasts. Overall, the color had improved and the light levels increased. They know that longer life lamps means reduced maintenance costs. Plus, they have a big SDGE rebate for a faster payback.
