Small businesses should think seriously about their lighting. It seems simple, but lighting is a critical component of any small business because it can improve employee efficiency, and be aesthetically pleasing to encourage sales.
“Depending on the type of business you operate, lighting accounts for 20 to 50 percent of electricity consumption. This means that significant cost savings can be achieved with energy-efficiency improvements,” advises the U.S. Small Business Administration.
The SBA provides a detailed article about the different kinds of efficient lighting technology on their website. It’s definitely worth taking a look at if you are thinking of retrofitting or upgrading your building’s lighting system.
With the right design and effective technology, businesses are sure to enhance performance and save on energy costs.
