Lighting Energy Study


The lighting energy study that TRC provided included the existing technology, the recommended replacement, as well as additional recommendations for replacements. You could clearly see what was the best way to go. In fact, the proposed cost savings was a reduction in annual energy costs by 58%.” – Lee Morem, ISD #299 Caledonia Public Schools


Included In a Lighting Energy Study

The most successful projects start with a great plan, a personalized approach, and a level of detail that gives you the information you need to justify an investment and ensure you get the project you want.

A Lighting Energy Study is a full assessment of your current lighting system. This study identifies problem areas, explores how LED lights, controls or other options can help save significant energy, cost and maintenance, including detailed analysis and reporting. Our Lighting Energy Study assists in any industrial, commercial or institutional facility across the country to establish proper light levels and to improve energy efficiency. The Retrofit Companies, inc. has a team of dedicated lighting experts who have the experience to lead any lighting project to success. We are partners with multiple utility companies and provide up to the minute expertise on current rebates for your business.

A Lighting Energy Study is typically a charge per square foot, but can also be billed on a per day basis. This fee provides you with the line items mentioned above and a partnership with our team of experts. These deliverables put you in a position to fully understand your project, the results you can expect to see from your project, and ultimately allow you to make an informed decision.
