Shoppers can now really see the bargains while antiquing in Cornish
When Steve Smith bought the building that houses Smith Company Antique Shop in 1996, fluorescent lighting was state-of-the-art. The new LED lighting he recently installed with help from Efficiency Maine’s Small Business Initiative, is a significant improvement: they’ll save him an estimated $525 per year on lighting costs while improving visibility in his shop.
“The savings are nice, but the improvement in the light quality is unreal!” – Steve Smith, Owner
A local contractor, Field Electric, performed the free no-obligation lighting assessment, provided estimated project costs and savings, and installed sleek new LED strip lighting throughout the shop.
“They’re quiet—none of the hum I used to hear while my old (fluorescent) lights warmed up,” says Smith.
