Don’t Pay Twice for Your Lighting Upgrade!

Less than five years ago, we submitted a proposal to upgrade the parking deck lighting at one of Georgia’s largest shopping malls. Unfortunately, the owners chose another company with a lower up-front price.

Fast forward to 2021. Unfortunately, more than 40 light fixtures had failed, leaving large areas of the parking deck dark and unsafe. The lighting contractor who installed them was nowhere to be found. Consequently, the mall’s Operations Manager reached out to us to repair the lights so their tenants and customers would feel safe parking at night.

After digging, we found the fixture manufacturer was out of business, so the warranty was worthless. Furthermore, the other contractor had installed technology that was being phased-out five years ago, so replacement parts were scarce and costly. We submitted two proposals — one to repair the existing fixtures and one to upgrade them.

The customer wisely decided against throwing away good money after bad. Instead, they chose the proposal to upgrade the parking deck for a second time. We installed LED technology that supplies far better lighting with 55% reduced energy costs. And we chose fixtures made in America and backed by a stellar warranty from a 50-year-old manufacturer. What’s more, we got them a Georgia Power rebate of more than $12,000!

Making a purchase decision solely on price is one of several pitfalls to avoid when upgrading to LED lighting. We want to help you avoid regrets by empowering you with the knowledge to make the best buying decision. Whether or not you choose us, we guarantee it’s worth 20-30 minutes of your time. And, considering that lighting upgrades are supposed to last for a decade or more, don’t you need that peace of mind? 

If you would like to learn how to avoid costly mistakes when upgrading your lighting, please call us or to to our website to schedule a quick, 20–30-minute meeting. Wishing you all the best in 2022!

“Save your energy. We’ll take care of it!”
