The Formula for Lighting Energy Efficiency

Technology + Effective Design = Performance and Energy Savings  

LED (Light-Emitting Diode) Technology

New light-emitting diode (LED) replacement bulbs are an excellent way to enhance lighting quality while substantially cutting operating costs. Businesses such as retail, grocery stores and hospitality can replace incandescent bulbs with LEDs for excellent color rendition and ability to direct high-quality light on products and services. LEDs use up to 75 percent less electricity than incandescent bulbs; they deliver substantial energy cost savings for any business with lights that are in use for extended periods. LED bulbs are built to last between 25,000 and 50,000 hours compared to just 1,000 to 2,000 hours for incandescent bulbs. This means significant maintenance savings in any application where lights are difficult to replace or maintain. Upgrades to commercial lighting systems are often the first step for businesses seeking to reduce energy use and manage energy as a variable cost.

Cost Savings Energy-Efficiency Lighting 

Baker Energy Team knows that lighting is a critical component of every business. Work spaces must be well lit with aesthetically pleasing lighting for both employees and customers. Depending on the type of business you operate, lighting accounts for 20% to 50% of all electricity consumed. This means that significant cost savings can be achieved with energy-efficiency improvements  Due to continually improving equipment, lighting usually provides the highest return-on-investment of all major upgrades.


LED lighting Offers Your Business:

  • High-quality light and color. LEDs achieve full brightness instantly. They are available in cool, neutral and warm color temperatures.
  • Operating savings. LEDs save up to 75 percent on lighting energy.
  • Reduced maintenance. LEDs last up to 50 times longer than incandescent bulbs and five times longer than compact fluorescent bulbs.
  • Cooling savings. LEDs produce very little heat, potentially cutting air-conditioning costs.
  • Durability. ENERGY STAR certified LEDs come with a minimum three-year warranty.



LED is a highly energy efficient lighting technology, and has the potential to fundamentally change the future of lighting in the United States.  Residential LEDs — especially ENERGY STAR rated products — use at least 75% less energy, and last 50 times longer, than incandescent lighting. Widespread use of LED lighting has the greatest potential impact on energy savings in the United States. By 2027, widespread use of LEDs could save about 348 Terawatt Hours (compared to no LED use) of electricity: This is the equivalent annual electrical output of 44 large electric power plants (1000 megawatts each), and a total savings of more than $30 billion at today’s electricity prices.



The high efficiency and directional nature of LEDs makes them ideal for many industrial uses. LEDs are now common in street lights, parking garage lighting, walkway and other outdoor area lighting, refrigerated case lighting, modular lighting and task lighting. Let Baker Energy Team design your residential, industrial or commercial energy efficient LED lighting system that saves you money year over year.
