Lighting Project Description

Centers for Specialty Care Group (Centers for Care) manages 23 facilities throughout the state of New York and New Jersey that provides rehabilitative and nursing support for all types of patients in both inpatient and outpatient settings. There facilities have significant utility bills expenses to maintain comfortable environments for their patients and staff.

GreenLight worked with Centers for Care to retrofit their aging T12 linear fluorescent lamps with new T8 fluorescents lamps as well as complete fixture replacements with LED Troffers. The new fixtures significantly increased the cash flow at these facilities and their profitability. GreenLight secured rebates to pay for the majority of the project costs such that the lighting projects realized a return on investment in less than 1 year.
