See how a simple LED lighting retrofit can save your business bundles
If you are a commercial building owner, it’s time to consider a LED lighting retrofit. While you may have contemplated the idea in the past, it’s time to take action. There are huge financial incentives, rebates through your local municipality, government tax credits, deductions, and energy savings associated with LED upgrades. Here are just a few of the ways you can save with a new LED retrofit in your commercial space.
Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E): PG&E offers financing with 0 percent interest to help pay for inefficient and worn-out equipment. Loans range from $5,000 to $100,000 and payments are through your PG&E energy statement.

Green Building Tax Deduction: If you’re ready to make big energy changes beyond an LED lighting retrofit, you should check out the 2016 Green Building Tax Deduction, also called “Section 179d”. This tax incentive offers new or existing building owners a one-time depreciation deduction of up to $1.80 per square foot for their installation of energy efficiency measures. Qualifying systems must reduce the building’s total energy and power cost by 50% or more.
