Considering A Retrofit For Your 2 Bulb 8' T-12?


Check out our worksheet that we made up as a quick cheat sheet that we use on sales calls to help show a business Owner or Manager how much they could potentially save if they were to do an energy efficient lighting upgrade.  This one is a bit small here, but you can download down below.  

Haven't Considered A Retrofit Yet?

T-12 fixtures are real drag on your electricity bill.  The T12 technology is outdated, so the bulbs are no longer manufactured.  So at some point, you are going to have to do something about it.  

One option you can surely consider is to actually retrofit your existing fixtures to the new T-8 technology.  We have done this on a few projects with excellent results.  

But, sometimes the calculations can be a bit overwhelming, so we created this quick spreadsheet which can help you identify if this is something you should be considering or not. For this sheet, we used incentives that we have in Michigan at the moment, so yours may be different.  If you just analyze energy savings, that should tell you quite a lot.
