There are a lot of myths out there about why not to do a lighting project, and we’ve heard them all! For anyone who has done one, you know they can be a no brainer, with ultra-rapid ROIs and tons of incentives available.  For those of you just starting to think about lighting, take a look at the top 10 reasons facility owners hesitate and why now is the time to move forward.

Don’t believe it!  Lighting retrofits lower your utility bills substantially and immediately. Energy prices are higher than ever and energy efficient technology can slash your electricity costs by as much as 90%.  Lighting typically consumes around 1/3 of your total electric bill, depending on your application (less in industrial plants with heavy equipment, more in parking garages and commercial applications).  So you’re looking at saving 10 to 30 percent of your monthly energy bill with the average Aelux lighting project. Imagine what you could do with those extra dollars!
Study after study has shown that improving light quality and levels improves safety and health, reducing accidents, eye strain, headaches and sick days.  It even improves productivity. Check out this Rocky Mountain Institute article to see the real value in energy efficient retrofits.
On the contrary, energy efficient lighting projects have never been more affordable, both in return on investment and up-front cost. Aelux keeps initial costs low by remaining neutral to the manufacturer and technology, ensuring we can show you Good/Better/Best sets of solutions that nearly meet any budget.  Our typical project payback ranges from 12 to 60 months, depending on your existing technology and what you’d like to do.  Return on investment for lighting projects is often in triple digits, making an investment in energy efficiency one of the most profitable investments you can make!
