We will replace your indoor lighting systems with state-of-the-art systems meeting the T5 or T8 standards (depending on your needs). Where appropriate, we can also install control systems that provide lighting only when and where you need it, so you’ll no longer be wasting money to illuminate empty rooms.
Lighting waste is covered by an alphabet soup of federal regulations, including the Federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), the Toxic Substances Control Act (TCSA), the Superfund liability laws and the Universal Waste Rule. Complying with these laws can be complex. For example, hazardous waste must be properly identified, stored, transported and treated. So when you retrofit your locations, it’s sound practice to have us recycle the materials, ensuring compliance and limiting your liability.
Go Green With Scott Services Power Saver Program (PSP)
Going “green” isn’t just a matter of doing the right thing. It’s increasingly a business necessity. Your investment in energy-efficient lighting systems will pay for itself many times over. In fact, we find that most customers can reduce their lighting bills by 55 percent in warehouses and factories. Even in office environments, customers typically reduce lighting energy costs by up to 35 percent.
Act now on EPAct!
If you act now, you may qualify for incentives under the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct for short). EPAct’s Partial Deduction Method allows owners to claim up to 60 cents per square foot for updates that meet specific requirements. We can explain these requirements and show you how to get Uncle Sam’s help in paying for the improvements. But these incentives are scheduled to end on Dec. 31, 2013, so now is the time to act.
Free Lighting Audit
We’ll inventory your existing lighting and develop an upgrade plan that best meets your needs. We’ll even calculate the energy savings you can expect, so you’ll have the confidence that comes with a great investment. How great? Our clients typically find that these changes pay for themselves in as little as three years. After that, you’ll continue to enjoy lower costs year after year as a result of your foresight.
- Security – It’s a simple fact that “bad guys” avoid the light. Employees, customers, visitors, vendors and others who visit your property at night will appreciate the security of a lighting system that lets them see what’s going on around them. And consistent lighting also makes your electronic surveillance systems more effective.
- Image – Poorly maintained outdoor lighting can send a message that you’re either indifferent to details or – even worse – financially troubled. A modern, well-lit exterior sends the opposite message, letting people know you care enough to maintain this aspect of your property.
- Safety – Keeping your associates, customers and visitors safe is just good business. More accidents happen in the dark, and in our litigious society, poorly maintained lighting increase your liability.
