Why should I retrofit my buildings lighting?
There are a lot of reasons why companies consider energy efficiency projects. Being environmentally responsible is a reward in itself, being eco-friendly enhances a company’s image by reflecting the environmental concerns of clients, vendors, employees, and the broader public.
But the most compelling reason to begin an energy management/efficiency project is financial benefit. Reduced energy consumption results in reduced energy costs. Beyond the direct savings achieved by buying less power, there are many financial incentives offered in the form of government tax deductions and power utility rebates (where available and subject to qualifications that vary greatly) to encourage adopting energy-efficient practices.
