Lighting can be a significant operating expense in existing buildings. Maine businesses can reduce lighting expenses by upgrading to high-efficiency fixtures and installing lighting controls. Lighting control technologies allow building managers to carefully tailor lighting conditions to the requirements of specific spaces. These upgrades can also enhance productivity and improve aesthetics. Efficiency Maine incentivizes high-efficiency lighting and lighting control projects ranging from pendant LEDs to parking lot lights.
