Step 1: Meeting
To begin the assessment, our team will meet with you to understand your current lighting solutions. Whether you would simply like more information on an LED retrofit or if you are further along in the buying process, we are here for you.
Step 2: Determine Cost of Current Lighting
During the assessment, we will gather information on the current cost of your lighting to quantify the impact of your existing lighting on your operating expenses. This expense is critical to our assessment process. It helps us determine a scope of the project and measure the potential ROI with an LED lighting solution.
Step 3: Inventory Existing Lighting
Next, we will tour your property to assess existing interior and exterior lighting. During this inventory, we note the following:
- Count the total number of fixtures
- Different types of fixtures in use
- Wattage of each fixture
- Voltage at each fixture
We follow the IES Handbook for all foot candles requirements. If an area of a building does not meet the minimum requirements, we will note it and offer a recommendation to improve it. We also follow the IECC 2015 for energy efficiency codes. These codes are the requirements for motion sensors, daylight harvesting, and energy usage.
Step 4: Assessment Report
After we have completed the physical lighting assessment, the onsite assessment is complete. We will compile the information gathered during the assessment to provide a customized report to the client. This report includes:
- Current cost of lighting
- Potential savings by switching to LED
- Rebate opportunities
- Lighting plan
