Lighting upgrades are often the best—and easiest—way to make energy-efficient improvements to your commercial property or business. Upgrading to new energy-efficient lighting, fixtures and controls can save energy and improve customer experience and employee productivity. Energy Trust makes these upgrades more affordable with cash incentives for lighting and lighting control projects.
