Property Managers and Community Boards of Directors:

Amazingly, Dominion Virginia Power and PEPCO are both still processing significant lighting rebate requests and issuing hundreds of thousands of dollars from their lighting rebate programs; these rebates are being sent to commercial property owners who replace outdated lighting technology with more efficient solutions and are reducing the cost of lighting purchases by up to 90% in many instances.  

Most of today's energy efficient lighting technologies, such as LED, will reduce power consumption by over 50% compared to legacy technologies, while extending longevity between 3 - 50 times.

While the funding of the current rebate programs has lasted longer than expected (significantly longer than the short-lived 2012 programs), like many other energy incentive programs in the US, these programs are scheduled to terminate whether or not the remaining funding is depleted over the course of the next year.

Successfully securing rebates has proven to be a highly technical process, requiring precision in recommended product and in documentation; there have been many rejected applications, particularly by Dominion Virginia Power, regarding installations that do not meet rapidly evolving specification requirements at the time of submission.  

Green Light Energy offers a free walk through service that quantifies in writing the lighting rebates available to you.  We are experienced in successfully interfacing with the PEPCO and Dominion Virginia Power rebate programs and in being a competively priced supplier of lighitng solutions that meet rebate program specifications.  To request the free walk through, simply email or call us!

High Efficiency; Colonial Style

The mid Atlantic region in the US has wonderful colonial architecture.  Unfortunately, most properties with colonial style appointments run ancient lighting technology as well.  To address this issue, Green Light Energy worked carefully with our suppliers to create a custom set of colonial style lighting fixtures that run today's modern technologies (LED and Induction) while packaged in high quality, colonial housings.  These fixtures have been heavily scrutinized by Boards and Energy Committees in recent years in competitive bidding processes, and they have won all bidding process in which we have submitted them.

In addition, we have had solid positive feedback amongst communities in Maryland and Virginia where we have installed these fixtures since 2012; all are running flawlessly, backed by a ten-year warranty.  With 20-year bulb lifetimes, they eliminate maintenance for decades while running at half the power consumption of traditional technologies.  

Don't take our word for it...call us for a reference and we'll gladly put you in touch with Board members and property managers who have made the jump to modern lighting with us, while preserving the traditional style of their communities.

Energy Auctions: Competition for Your Energy Dollar

If your property incurs in excess of $100,000 per year in electricity costs, you have an opportunity to have your electricity business competed, potentially dropping your costs between 5-25%. 

Since 2009, Green Light Energy has partnered with one of the largest energy procurement platforms operating in the US; this double blind, reverse auction service coordinates true competitive bidding for your energy business; it is the exact same service used by various federal government agencies, regional governments and Fortune 500 companies for years to drive their energy costs to the bare minimum while complying with Sarbanes-Oxley requirements.

Green Light Energy Expands Relationship with IHOP

Since 2012, Green Light Energy has been helping IHOP franchisees substantially reduce their cost of providing lighting, while simultaneously significantly improving the amount of light provided in their parking lot areas.  More specifically, Green Light Energy has provided 300-watt high output induction fixtures to replace the 1,000 watt metal halide fixtures traditionally used by IHOP franchisees.

After three years of evaluation of the installed fixtures, IHOP franchisees have been realizing substantial cost savings and have been accelerating the rate of change over to lights provided by Green Light  Energy.  

Here is a recent testimonial we received in this regard this month (May 2015) from the general manager of an IHOP in Atlanta:

I am writing to thank you and your company for recommending induction lighting to me for my store’s parking lot on Thornton Road in Lithia Springs, GA.  As you know, my IHOP franchise is in a high traffic area near an interstate, and a well lit parking lot is important to attract customers and to enable them to feel safe when they visit us.  Your product has helped us improve our lighting and lower our costs at the same time.

You recommended that we replace our 1,000 watt metal halide fixtures with 600 watts of induction.  As you know, beginning in March 2011, we had to initially employ a piecemeal approach to implement your suggestion because of budget constraints, replacing some of the 1,000 watt metal halide lamps with just one 300 watt induction lamp from your company (instead of two).  Still, I think one of these 300 watt induction lamps nearly replaced the 1,000 watts of metal halide that we were running; I am very happy with them.

I am particularly happy about the longevity profile of induction; for years I have been paying an electrician $300-$400 nearly every month to change out a bulb and/or ballast in our old metal halide pole-mounted light fixtures; those old lights would also fade and flicker and were never uniform.  With the induction system and its 100,000 hour life, I no longer have the maintenance cost and the uniformity of light makes our store look fantastic at night.   I am glad that there is a ten-year warranty to protect my store’s investment.  My regional management shares these sentiments.  We have definitely saved thousands of dollars so far with the lighting you provided, while providing more light to our customers than we used to have.   

Our most recent purchase of lighting from you this past month will be followed by additional orders as we complete our changeover to what you have recommended.

Thank you.
