The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, a federal regulation on energy consumption, have made a significant impact on how lighting is manufactured. The regulations are mainly focused on older and less energy efficient equipment. Many of the older lighting equipment have already vesoffice lighting 3been phased out of production. Updating your entire lighting program requires an initial investment but will pay for itself over time. To help offset the expense of updating your lighting systems many local utility companies and the government, for a limited time, are offering incentive programs and tax deductions. In addition PGS is passing along discounts that have been offered by our suppliers due to the high level of interest of consumers. Business owners and managers that take advantage of the financial benefits will reduce the cost of new equipment while gaining the energy savings from upgrading. Those that wait to upgrade will see higher energy costs of current inefficient lighting equipment, price increases due to supply and demand, and the loss of incentives due to their expiration.
