Lighting retrofits are one of the most common and effective conservation measures available. Replacing T12 and T8 lamps, magnetic ballast's and high intensity discharge (HIDS) fixtures with newer technology lighting systems along with government and utility incentives have produced unheard of returns and energy savings. As an added benefit, newer lighting systems provided a better quality of light, are quieter and last longer.
Typically, lighting retrofits provide a positive cash flow on an amortized program, or simply pay for themselves in 18 to 30 months, offering internal rates of returns up to 30% or more! Utility incentives can help with up-front costs, while making for more attractive rates of return. In some cases, the reduced payback period is as little as 12 months.
