Lower your energy and lighting costs.

Here’s a breakdown of typical lighting system costs by percentage of the total.


    Energy—your highest expense by far is also the easiest to control. Power usage can account for up to 83% of the total cost of light.
    Labor & maintenance—around 13%, almost four times the cost of your lamps.
    Lamps —less than 3.5%, but with huge implications for energy consumption.
    Disposal —less than .5%, assuming EPA compliance.
