On average, lighting systems in newer commercial institutions account for 25-30 percent of a building’s total electricity use. Energy use in an older structure can be even higher. If the facility hasn’t had an upgrade in the last 15-20 years, lighting can account for up to 40 percent of total electricity use. Costs like that can bleed the profitability right out of a business. The worst part is, it’s completely avoidable.
Lighting is an enormous energy conservation target, and the rewards for upgrading can be huge. Retrofitting has become one of the most popular methods for business owners to conserve costs while simultaneously increasing the energy efficiency of their facilities. Many engineers and maintenance managers report that upon upgrading a building’s lighting, costs of lighting can drop over 25 percent. Often, the cost of a retrofit will pay for itself within just a few years.
