Last week we introduced the topic of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for lighting. In the post we showed a simple equation to calculate the TCO of a bulb. The cheaper or less expensive upfront cost of a bulb may not always be the best option in the long run. Factors including the wattage, kWh rate, product cost, rated life, are all considered in your cost of ownership.
There are other ways to save when considering a switch to energy efficiency lighting such as LED. In addition to your long-term cost savings, utility sponsored rebates are an excellent way to reduce your upfront or initial costs- further reducing your Total Cost of Ownership.

Everyone wants to be energy efficient these days: it can help to reduce energy costs- key for all businesses.
If you’re happy with the performance, light output, layout, and appearance of your current lighting system then there’s no need for a full replacement of your fixtures. Retrofit kits let you improve upon the existing fixtures without having to go through the time and cost of replacing them. Not only are they fast and easy to install, but they are one of the most cost effective way to save on lighting. Depending on circumstances, they may even qualify for available utility rebate programs.
