LED Lighting Makes a Big Impression on this Small Business

Small Business Chooses LED Lighting

By: | October 27, 2014 3:28 pm

Don’t think that LED lighting office space upgrades are just for office towers or big, corporate locations. When a Big O Tires franchise with a staff of eight decided to relocate to a new office, they made a carefully planned move to LED lighting.

And this was a big decision. At first, general manger Valerie Brooks was skeptical of the new LED technology because of the initial expense. But when she learned of the financial and lifespan benefits on top of the Xcel Energy rebates, she was all in.

Yet one difference made all the difference.
And that was the quality of light. Valerie mentions, “It’s just an amazing quality of light. Soft, but bright. And it’s not just me saying it. Everyone who visits our new space comments on our lighting!”
