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.

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 lightng 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 are utility incentives?

Energy incentives are funds that utility providers across the US will allocate towards qualifying energy efficiency projects. As a ratepayer, your company is likely already paying into your utility’s energy efficiency program fund.

Navigating the world of incentives can be a complex, time consuming process. That’s why PEC has put together a team of in-house incentive experts to handle the process for our clients, helping you receive the max funding available towards your incentive project, while staying focused on your day-to-day duties.

Will PEC handle my lighting installation?

You bet. When you work with PEC, we will handle the entire LED retrofit process from end to end.

Here’s how the process flows step by step:

  1. Energy Assessment: Begin with an energy assessment to learn your project goals, facility layout, current challenges and pain points.
  2. Energy Audit: We’ll complete a thorough, on-site audit of your current lighting system, where we’ll measure light levels (foot candles), fixture counts, and see how the space is used.
  3. Lighting Design: Modern software allows us to use photometrics and 3D Modeling to design a system optimized for your space.
  4. Incentive management: Your project may qualify for funding through your utility provider’s incentive program. Our team of in experts will handle this entire process for you.
  5. Project Management: Once we’ve nailed down a new system design that you’re happy with, a Project Manager will be dedicated to overseeing your entire project. They will keep you informed about what to expect, schedule contractors and arrange for material delivery and installation.
  6. Installation and completion: Once the install is done, your PM will perform an onsite 100% re-audit to confirm the project was implemented correctly. If everything meets our standards, your PM will schedule a tour with an incentive inspector and we’ll send you any required paperwork to sign off on your completed LED upgrade.
