Lighting constitutes one of the largest portions of energy expenses, an area that homeowners and businesses can greatly reduce their costs by making easy and beneficial changes. Simply by converting to LED lighting, energy costs can be reduced by as much as 35% annually, not to mention the reduced costs in maintenance. LED bulbs have a lifespan that is 8 to 10 times longer than conventional halogen bulbs, dropping the costs of purchasing replacement bulbs and the time spent to manually change out the lights. With LEDs also now being in the 4th and 5th generations, the quality of light and range of color options far surpasses that of conventional halogen and CFLs.

Another benefit for businesses is the availability of rebates through SRP and APS when switching to more energy efficient products. As a Trade Alliance Partner, ILE is able to provide our customer with an energy assessment, inspecting the areas of your business that improvements can be made and putting together a plan to meet your business’ needs. After submitting the assessment, we will gain a “Pre-Approval” for your rebate, establishing the true costs and energy reduction for your project.

In addition to cost savings, the LED lighting has enabled Boston Interiors to reduce its carbon footprint, as the company is committed to green initiatives. The retrofit is a major contributor in helping reduce the store’s energy consumption by 48,315 kilowatt hours (kWh), the equivalent of 61,022 pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2). With the success of this installation, Boston Interiors is now planning to retrofit its Hanover and Saugus stores in the coming months, further expanding its cost and environmental savings across multiple store locations (Boston Interiors).
