Our Step-by-Step Process

Energy Assessment - LED Lighting Retrofit

1. Energy Assessment

Every project begins with a complete assessment of your unique lighting needs and objectives. We discuss how you’re currently using your space, review existing technologies, and establish clear directives for how to add value to your building.

Get started
Our Process - Energy Audit

2. Energy Audit

We’ll perform a free, comprehensive on-site assessment of your current light system — measuring precise level–light-levels, foot candles, fixture counts, and establish a baseline. From this we’ll understand exactly how to provide the lighting system you need to will develop a selection of options for review.

A customized 3D model of your site incorporating our solutions — including projected light levels and photometrics. By comparing your existing system to our proposal, you’re able to “try before you buy” and witness the impact on your facility.

Experts in Energy Incentives

Unlock the max funding available for your project from your local utility provider

Commercial and industrial facilities are some of the largest energy consumers on the grid. To manage electrical demand and encourage the adoption of efficient technologies, many utility companies provide specific programs that cover a portion of the cost (often a significant portion) of energy-saving projects.

However, these programs can be complex and challenging to navigate, resulting in hours of time spent researching programs.

Your utility incentive should feel like a discount, not like a project of its own.

PEC is proud to offer a team of in-house incentive experts to help you take advantage of California incentive programs and save potentially thousands on your next project:

  • Tax incentives
  • Interest-free project financing through California OBF
  • Other Rebate programs you may be eligible for

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an LED Retrofit?

An LED retrofit is a replacement of existing inefficient lighting fixtures with energy efficient LED (with or without control systems).

While seemingly straight forward at its core, a one-for-one bulb swap will not maximize efficiency and can even cause some major headaches if done improperly. 

That’s why it’s critical to work with an experience LED retrofit contractor like PEC, where we will design a system leveraging the best fixtures, optics, sensors and control systems to help our clients access the maximum amount of efficiency while also making huge improvements to the overall lighting quality in their facilities. Learn more on this page about our LED retrofit services.

What is a commercial lighting audit?

To complete a thorough audit of your space, a PEC Sales Engineer will perform an on-site evaluation of your facility and work with you to determine:

  • The total number of fixtures and fixture types, their locations, heights, and how they are controlled.
  • Ceiling structure and height.
  • The building’s usages and existing light levels (measured by foot candles).
  • Areas of importance to your business in order to design optimal lighting specific to your needs.

In addition to assessing your current lighting system, we will also evaluate the environmental conditions of your space like airflow, dust, moisture levels, temperature, chemicals, and indoor/outdoor spaces to help us design an efficiency solution for your unique needs.

How much does a commercial energy audit cost?

Energy audits are free when working with PEC! Please note that we do only audit commercial spaces — get started by filling out the form on this page to see if our auditing services make sense for your facility.

What utility providers in California offer incentives?

While PEC has secured incentives for our customers through over 10+ utility providers throughout California, some of the main utilities and programs we’ve worked with historically include:

  • Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E)
  • Southern California Edison (SCE)
  • San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E)
  • Illuminate CA
  • Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD)

Whoever your power provider is, PEC’s in-house team of energy incentive specialists have the connections and expertise to research the best utility incentives available for your energy efficiency project.

What are utility On-Bill Financing Programs?

On-Bill Financing (OBF) is a no-interest financing option available to business customers & government agencies for qualifying energy efficiency projects

Through OBF, eligible customers can fund projects with a zero percent no-interest loan that is repaid through their monthly PG&E bill.

With On-Bill Financing available in California, this can be a great potential option to fund commercial energy efficiency retrofit projects without committing large amounts of upfront capital, helping companies with limited on-hand cash to take on energy efficiency projects.

Connect with PEC to learn more about OBF and how we can handle this process for you through our in-house energy incentive team!
