Wise Up With Energy Savings

As schools move away from being facilities that are only operational during the fall, winter, and spring,
their lighting energy bills are increasing.

Summer classes, athletic events, after-hours tournaments, weekend community gatherings, and growing numbers of extracurricular activities mean that lighting systems are no longer shut off during the summer – they’re on year-round, and often until the evening hours.

Lighting retrofits are one way to quickly improve facility efficiency, reduce operating costs, and free up funds for other projects. Imagine what your school could do with an electric bill that was cut in half. More money would be available for technology, books, and educators.

In many cases, lighting retrofits can be done without having to disturb ceilings, eliminating the worry about asbestos remediation in older school buildings. A retrofit can also reduce the burden placed on your maintenance staff, who likely have full work schedules that don’t allow a lot of time for replacing lamps, fixing fixtures, and ordering parts.

“Achieve a cost-effective lighting retrofit while rebates and tax incentives are still available - without a large capital investment.”

Van Meter’s FlipSwitch brings schools lighting as a service. Achieve a cost-effective lighting retrofit while rebates and tax incentives are still available – without a large capital investment.

We will manage the entire retrofit process for you, from an onsite assessment and examination of current utility expenses to determine improvement opportunities, 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.
