With today’s abundant LED lighting selections, have you reviewed your facility’s lighting and control opportunities for updates?   A lighting audit can provide energy efficiency and energy cost-saving opportunities as well as suggestions for improved productivity, safety, and security.   So, if you have not visited your opportunities or are unsure how to get started in achieving your goals for improving your lighting performance and needs in your school, warehouse, factory, warehouse, or office building, now may be the time.

You may be incurring unnecessary risk, reducing worker productivity, and overpaying for electricity usage. Springfield Electric’s Lighting audit team can help your organization minimize liability, save energy costs, boost security, and create a plan for your facility up to date.

Springfield Electric Lighting Audits

Our lighting audits take an in-depth look at your lighting needs, illuminating areas for improvement and developing a comprehensive plan for achieving your goals. Performed by our team of lighting specialists with many years of industry experience and multiple Energy Auditor and Lighting Efficiency Professional certifications, our commercial and industrial lighting audits take a systematic approach to assessing the current state of your lighting, assessing gaps and deficiencies, devising the solution, and sketching out a plan for meeting your specific needs.

Our lighting audits follow a 3-step process: 

   Step 1 – Project Initiation – We collaborate with you/your staff and specialists to understand your lighting objectives and challenges.  We want to understand your ultimate primary goals. We’ll explore your current energy usage, savings opportunities, current and potential product options, and any     potential rebate offers.

    Step 2 – Facility Walkthrough – The Springfield Electric audit team will measure, evaluate, and document your facility’s size, light levels, fixture and lamp count, specific areas for optimal user light level requirements, and other details based on our comprehensive checklist refined through experience and standards in lighting audits and inspections. 

    Step 3 – Analysis and Proposal – The lighting audit team will then provide you with a detailed report detailing of findings and recommendations. These will include lamp and fixture specifications, photometric architecture, applicable incentives, return on investment, and more. 

Most lighting update projects will pay for themselves in 5 to 7 years!
