For homes and businesses alike, one of the biggest contributors to high energy bills is lighting. Many of us are still using compact fluorescent bulbs, halogen incandescents, or in some rare cases, traditional incandescent bulbs. After the federal government prohibited the manufacture of traditional incandescent bulbs in 2007, most consumers started turning toward compact fluorescent lights. These bulbs use less energy than incandescents and can usually start paying for themselves after 9 months of use. Still, the presence of mercury in compact fluorescent bulbs concerned some buyers, even though they were more energy efficient than the other options on the market.

It’s no secret that commercial buildings use a lot of energy. A combination of rising energy prices and more stringent regulations in some areas have led landlords to seek out energy efficient retrofits for their properties. A recent report predicted that the worldwide market for energy efficient retrofits in commercial and public buildings will grow from $68.2 billion in 2014 to $127.5 billion by 2023. Sure, retrofits sound expensive, but it would be even more expensive to have to tear every old building down and replace it with a new one outfitted with all of the latest innovations. Retrofits will be central to equipping old buildings with the new technology they need to be more energy efficient.
