What is the process for an LED lighting upgrade?
Lighting retrofits or installations can be overwhelming to consider, but the process can be made simple. Contemporary Energy Solutions is known for helping Industrial and Commercial clients eliminate waste from their operations and improve their bottom lines. We typically look at facility lighting and energy supply first as these are the lowest hanging fruit for most companies. We discuss the needs and requirements of our clients with them first, and determine our specific strategy. Using a unique value engineered approach to lighting design we help minimize out of pocket costs to meet lighting objectives. Not all jobs are the same, but most will have some degree of these assumed lighting project objectives:
- Reduce Energy Costs
- Meet and/or exceed light levels
- Meet new light level standards
- Take advantage of available utility rebates and tax incentives
The first step is a Viability Assessment. We identify cost saving opportunities at the location(s) and assess the economic viability of a change over. CES will provide a technology demonstration onsite to measure and verify output and energy consumption. This information will be used to design a lighting system that will meet or exceed lighting requirements and optimize energy savings.
To verify performance and economics, and find the right technology for your needs, we perform Site Testing. We will be looking for consistent lighting results. A space should not be over or under lit to maximize efficiency.
Our Final Proposal is presented once we’ve navigated through the options and found the optimal balance between technology, performance, and economics. By listening to our clients and understanding specific project requirements, we can utilize our factory-direct relationships to find the best solutions to meet objectives at the lowest cost possible. We are experts at helping clients develop and implement an IoT strategy, piggybacking off the LED lighting upgrades.
Contemporary Energy Solutions has a rebate management division dedicated to Incentive Paperwork. They manage potential incentives from cradle to grave, ensuring the maximum available is received. Our rebate team will work with local utilities to handle the administrative process, and guarantee that utilities procedures are followed correctly. CES can also assist in taking advantage of federal tax programs.
Contemporary Energy Solutions has a Facility Services Division that can handle all aspects of Implementing a lighting installation. Alternatively, we can work with your preferred electrical contractor or our extensive network of qualified, competitively priced installation partners. By leveraging the millions we do each year in projects we are able to get very competitive however our clients prefer to work. CES will recycle and dispose of all old lighting systems and provide recycling and disposal certification.
There are extensive benefits to a lighting upgrade. Aside from financial benefits, the choice of lighting can have a significant impact on productivity. LED lighting has been shown to have a substantial positive impact on the workers in a facility. CES has the know-how to make the upgrade process simple. With over 90 years of industry experience, our team has 1,000+ successful lighting projects completed 2008 for Industrial and Commercial clients.
