How Do I Start?

Pick an Approved Local Contractor   

The contractor will take the following three steps:
  1. Assess - First, the contractor will visit your business, restaurant or multifamily property for a free assessment of your existing lighting. The contractor will then provide an application and commitment letter for your review and signature, which will include provisions such as liability, insurance and warranty.***
  2. Order - Once the assessment is complete, the contractor will order the correct energy-efficient lighting that will suit your aesthetic needs.
  3. Install - Your new lighting will be installed at your convenience. Frequently Asked Questions
