With Spring upon us, comes Spring cleaning and renovations to our homes. Other than having a garage sale, much of the cleaning and renovations do not end up saving us money, but it can. If you live in the WNY or Buffalo NY area, there are lighting rebates and programs that could help you save a lot on your electricity costs each month.

Currently there are rebate programs for LED retrofitting in WNY from both NYSEG and National Grid that could save your multi-family home, or business a considerable amount in the coming year.

What is Retrofitting?

Myths about LED Lighting & LED Light Bulbs - Minneapolis, MN, Retrofit

We all rely on lighting every day and night of our lives, it is simply the way we live and have lived for over 100 years. Fortunately, lighting has advanced greatly in the last 10-20 years to the point where the light bulbs and lighting fixtures on the market are built to save the most amount of energy without sacrificing what a lighting fixture does—give light.

Unfortunately, a considerable amount of the lighting we use and see daily is outdated, and in some cases, dangerous. However, retrofitting is the simple solution to outdated lighting fixtures for residential, commercial, and indoor/outdoor.

Retrofitting is a way to update old lighting fixtures without any major construction or electrical work. Lighting specialists will take out the old diodes and replace them with new LED lighting that adapts into the older fixtures. It is a more cost-effective way of saving on your energy bills without having to rewire your home or office. The process can be done in one day (depending on the scope of work) and can save you thousands on your energy bills.
