Our 2 Year Anniversary Countdown | Manufacturing

Manufacturers have a lot to gain from new lighting. It’s important to consider that 90 percent of the cost of operating a lighting system is the energy it consumes.
Part of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 was a commercial building deduction that allows building owners to accelerate the deduction on the cost of energy efficient lighting or building upgrades, subject to a cap, in the year the equipment is placed in service.
