According to a recent study, wasted energy levels for outdoor lighting is often between 60-70 percent. This wastage is usually the result of unneeded lighting and over-lit designs. If you’re like most organizations who are still relying on traditional lighting, a commercial exterior LED lighting retrofit can be a great way to improve the efficiency of your outdoor lighting and ultimately reduce your utilities expenditure.
But ensuring a properly-lit exterior involves more than simply switching over to LEDs. To reduce wastage, expert commercial lighting design is a must. At SIB Lighting, we have deep experience with exterior lighting design. We pay close attention to detail with a continued focus on service and improving your bottom line.
Where Most Companies Go Wrong with Commercial Exterior Lighting
Because exterior lighting requires a tremendous amount of power annually, any flaw in design will be amplified throughout the year. That’s why it’s essential to work with an exterior lighting retrofit company who can recommend the best fixtures, create an optimized design for your space, and provide expert installation and maintenance services. These are the benefits of working with SIB, a leader in commercial lighting design:
- Efficient Coverage. With so much wasted energy devoted to excessive exterior commercial lighting coverage every year, this is the first improvement to make. Unlike traditional 360-degree fixtures, LED lights can target and focus light where it’s most needed. Our expert lighting engineers will examine your space and create an optimized design to send light only where it’s needed.
- Simply put, the more you cover with light, the more you’ll have to pay. Just as you wouldn’t want to pay for commercial space you don’t use, you shouldn’t have to pay for unnecessary lighting. LEDs are far more efficient than traditional bulbs to begin with, and with an optimized design, you can reduce wastage and be sure that you’re paying for only the areas that need to be lit.
- Proper lighting levels. “The more light, the better” is not necessarily the way to go about a commercial exterior LED lighting retrofit. Failing to dim lights or to implement a proper curfew is another area of significant wastage. LEDs offer greater control than traditional bulbs, allowing you to fine tune your outdoor lighting for maximum savings.
With the proper lighting design and retrofit service, your exterior can be overhauled from an energy sink to a properly-lit and efficient cost-saving solution.
Rethinking Exterior Commercial Lighting
With SIB’s innovative Lighting as a Service plan, you don’t have to buy your own lighting fixtures and hope they last. Instead, the process is much more like a subscription, allowing you to pay for your retrofit and ongoing usage on a monthly basis, much like you already do for your utilities. Enjoy an optimized LED exterior lighting design and installation without a significant upfront cost. And because we maintain ownership over the fixtures, we’ll be on standby to take care of any necessary maintenance—so you can focus on your business.
