LED (Light Emitting Diode) lighting is the state of the art of energy efficient lighting. Let’s define energy as “a source of usable power, such as gasoline, coal or electricity.” Most people understand energy as the electricity or gas they pay for monthly from their utility company.
Energy Efficiency is defined as “using less energy to produce the same, or more of what you using it to power.” This is most easily understood by utilizing energy-efficient products in your home which reduce your utility bill.
An example of an energy efficient product is a motor designed for a very specific application, like a refrigerator, that uses 30% less energy and produces the same desired output—cold food.
In the area of lighting, the most energy efficient type of bulb is LED. LED is the kind of lighting used in the current generation of flat screen TVs. LED light bulbs produce the same level of light as traditional light bulbs but can use up to 90% less energy! You spend less money to get the same amount of lighting. And because you’re using less energy, it’s better for the environment too.
Why It Makes More Sense To Upgrade With CES
It really is very simple to understand if you know and understand these 5 facts:
Typically, 40% of a business’s electric bill is for lighting of that business.
Installing LED lighting will save you 30-70% on the lighting portion of your business’s electric bill. The wide variance here is because different businesses use lighting in a wide variety of different ways but even the low end of this range is still very significant.
CES can show you how you can finance the LED lighting so that the monthly savings will cover that finance payment. Often, the savings is higher than the finance payment.
You are already paying for this every month by way of your electric bill. All we do is show you how to take part of the money you are already spending every month on your electric bill and use that to upgrade to LED lighting. The CES LED program pays for itself.
In most cases, the local utility will rebate the business up to 50% of the cost. This sky-rockets the savings potential even more!
