You’re Paying For LEDs Anyway

One of the things we kind of feel badly about is showing a potential client how they’re in need of an Energy Efficient LED Lighting conversion. Well, we don’t feel badly about that, rather about If they choose to not move forward with the project, they will find that in two years, they will have paid for the lights already….and not have them.

I call it “opening Pandora’s box”.

In the case of a local car dealership’s project to upgrade to Energy Efficient LED lighting:

Overall project cost for every bulb/fixture on the property to be converted….$135.300

Estimated power company incentive……………………………………………………………………$23,701

Annual utility savings after LED lighting install…………………………………………………..$54,312

Simple payback period (applying all of the utility savings to the project)………2.1 years

So in a little over 2 years, this dealership will have paid for their LED lighting project. Even if they decided to not move forward with it.

Add to this our 10 year warranty which allows the dealership to forget about lighting maintenance for the next decade which would amount to around $80,000.

Aaaand IRS code 179d which allows a $.60 per square foot credit when you upgrade to energy efficient LED lighting. But who knows if that may go away anytime soon.

That’s why we feel badly. They needed something and decided to put off buying it or not buy it at all, yet they still paid for it.

LED lighting is needed in your business. It’s not as expensive as it was. You’ll be glad you did it in the morning. Call us. 931-674-1411
