Customer Success

LET YOUR DEALERSHIP SHINE

To improve profits, car dealerships often have two options: sell more cars or reduce overhead and operating costs.

Many car dealership lighting systems are high-wattage and inefficient, contributing to expensive monthly bills. These systems can also be hard to access when maintenance is needed, often requiring expensive lifts to reach fixtures in parking lots (or in showrooms and warehouses with tall ceilings).

Because lighting is almost always on in car dealerships – whether it’s the lights in the shop, showroom, or parking lot – the U.S. Department of Energy says they consume up to 18% more energy than the average commercial building.

A lighting retrofit can save car dealerships money and improve profitability while ensuring that indoor and outdoor vehicle inventory is showcased in flattering, true-to-color light. If done correctly, a lighting retrofit can help potential shoppers engage with vehicle inventory after hours, improve the safety of employees working in the shop, and positively impact the look and feel of cars on display.

“There’s never been a better time to explore a lighting retrofit for your car dealership.”

Rebates and tax incentives are available, which provides an even faster return on investment. And with the FlipSwitch service from Van Meter, you can achieve a cost-effective upgrade without a large capital investment.

We manage the entire retrofit process for you, from onsite assessment and examination of current utility expenses, all the way through to making sure you get the rebates you expected. We present one monthly price, with labor and materials included – and we’ll run the numbers to show how much you’ll save as a result of using the service.

“I think we’re going to see more than $3,000 a month savings at each location on our electric bill, which is huge for us.”
