Energy Savings, Simplified

From site assessment, planning and product sourcing, to installation, financing and rebate filing – the dedicated FlipSwitch team at Van Meter handles it all for you.
From street lights and parking garages to city halls, libraries, and police stations, serving the needs of community members means that your lights must be on. But for each minute those systems shine, taxpayer dollars are being spent.
The types of lighting systems often found in municipalities – low- and high-pressure sodium or HID lamps, for example – may be inexpensive to install, but they’re expensive to operate and maintain.
A lighting retrofit upgrade can help municipalities and government buildings reduce energy usage and maintenance costs, prolong the lifecycle of lighting systems, improve security and safety, and showcase a commitment to the environment through reduced carbon emissions and light pollution.
Lighting retrofits can be completed quickly to minimize impact on crucial community operations. Most indoor lighting retrofits can be completed without breaking the ceiling plane – which means that network cabling, ductwork, and potential asbestos don’t have to be disturbed. Many of today’s lighting retrofit kits quickly install directly into existing fixtures.
