Cutting down on energy costs and controlling energy consumption is a priority for all owners. Switching to LED lighting conserves cash flow and delivers on both of these objectives. The greatest barrier to implementing LED lighting solutions is budget constraints and upfront costs. "Pay through Savings" overcomes this budget dilemma by providing savings in energy without any upfront investment from the customer. Owners can use the savings realized from LED lighting retrofit projects to pay for the upgrades over a period of time.
