Lighting Retrofits FAQs

What is retrofitting?
Retrofitting means to replace your existing lighting with new lighting technology, preferably to increase the energy efficiency and/or light quality of a lighting system. The term is often used when converting an older metal halide/high pressure sodium fixture to energy-efficient LED.
Why should I consider an energy-efficient lighting retrofit?
The answer is simple: energy-efficient LED lighting upgrades have one of the best returns on investment of any energy-efficient technology today, and offer paybacks in the 1-7 year range.

They offer:

  • Energy savings of up to 80%
  • Lower maintenance costs
  • Longer lamp life
  • Improved quality of light
  • Eligibility for utility incentives

How is it possible to lower my electric bill while increasing light?
Simply put, new lighting technologies are more efficient. In addition, KWReduction specializes in finding the smartest lighting design and layout for your facility.

How do I find out about tax incentives, grants and rebates available to help offset the cost of my project?
Federal and state governments, as well as utility companies are actively searching for ways to reduce energy consumption; hence they are offering incentives, grants and rebates which you should not miss out on. Please keep in mind that rebate programs are being utilized by consumers aggressively, and available grants can deplete quickly; consider acting promptly.

One of the benefits of working with MVE Group is that we have a dedicated team who handles rebates and rebate processing for our customers. The process of selling lighting retrofits does not look the same for each customer. The team at MVE Group stays on top of the ever changing rebates and grants and helps you choose what solution works best for your facility.

MVE Group maintains trade ally status with PPL and MetEd, which means we have authorization to complete rebate forms for our customers.
