Upgrade your business lighting to high performance, energy saving LEDs!
Electric lighting accounts for nearly 40% of all the energy consumed in U.S. commercial buildings each year. There are many options available for high efficiency lighting for commercial or industrial businesses.
It can take several months to find the right lighting contractor, determine which solution is right for the business, receive an estimate from the contractor, have all the work done, and process the incentives for the work.
Don’t delay, contact the PUD 3 conservation department at (360) 426-0777 for a FREE commercial lighting survey. A PUD 3 energy efficiency advisor will make recommendations and help walk through the upgrade process.
Commercial lighting incentives for new construction are also available.
All lighting projects must be pre-approved before existing lighting is removed and before new equipment is ordered.
PUD 3 has a project checklist available for customer use.
Please call the conservation department to verify there is funding for your project, as it is not always available.
LED lighting solutions are available for almost all projects- but not all projects are right for LEDs. There are now LEDs available for outdoor lighting, decorative building lighting, dimmable and non-dimmable interior can lights, screw-in sockets, and linear tubes (fluorescent replacements). LEDs boast deep energy savings, even far superior to that of energy efficient T8 fluorescent fixtures, and long life- reducing maintenance and replacement cost. To see if LEDs might be a good fit for your application, schedule a commercial lighting audit with a PUD 3 conservation technician at (360) 426-0777.
An improved outdoor lighting environment can create a lasting positive impression on customers and employees.
The benefits of outdoor lighting systems for commercial properties include:
Sometimes hiring an electrician and installing your own lighting equipment isn’t feasible.
If you have an outdoor area that needs more lighting, you may wish to consider PUD 3's outdoor lighting program. It's really simple to get started, and you don't have to buy or install the light fixtures. PUD 3 furnishes, installs, owns, and maintains the light, which is mounted on a utility pole near your home or business. The lights will operate automatically each night from dusk to dawn.
