Reach Your Goals During COVID-19 and Beyond
How is your facility’s energy efficiency?
Are bottom-line concerns holding you back from making energy efficiency upgrades to your facility? Knowing and understanding all of the available federal and local incentives for sustainable upgrades is a crucial factor in that decision-making process. One such incentive, the 179D tax deduction program, has now been extended through 2020.
Cutting the energy consumption of a facility while increasing energy savings is the new standard of building management, rather than the exception. Over the last several years, n technologies have emerged to meet those goals, such as LED lighting and controls, which can cut energy bills by more than half while improving the quality and safety of the facility. But there’s so much more. Additional ROI-boosting features in LED lighting and other technologies prove that connectivity is the future of building management.
This week over thirty of our field engineers from around the country traveled to the West Coast for our annual LightFair team meeting.
This month’s LightFair conference in San Diego will be another measuring stick for LED lighting. It’s the sixth year since the show turned all-LED, pushing every other lighting technology off the convention floor.
This time a few years ago our team met up with a customer to review an energy efficiency proposal planned for early the following year. Our HVAC and lighting upgrade was set to improve ventilation and lighting, while reducing the building’s annual energy consumption by 250,000 kWh. The local utility was prepared to contribute 30% of the project’s cost, producing a 28 month return on the potential investment.
Six weeks till Christmas – which means time to think about cool energy efficiency gifts for your loved ones.

Today we published our latest Enterprise LED market research, which studies trends in commercial and industrial LED lighting and profiles the top vendors. The report includes our newly developed LED Lamp and Fixture Pricing Index which tracks historical pricing for these products.
Lightfair 2009 was the coming out party for LED lighting. Lightfair 2010 turned into LEDfair, and by Lightfair 2011 LEDs had gone mainstream. As Bob, Fritz and I headed into Lightfair 2012’s exhibit hall we speculated on what we would see – and how over-the-top LED lighting might have become.
Everyone knew Lightfair 2011 was going to be all about LEDs.
