When you undertake a large lighting retrofit project like we did, you expect interruptions in the classroom to occur. However, we did not lose one single instructional minute due to the retrofit implemented by Lighting Optimizers, USA. All work was performed during non-instructional time, and we were ready for operation by the next school day every single day until project completion.
While we ventured into this purely for the energy savings, we were pleasantly surprised by the increased lighting capacity. Further, the company honored its price for the project which reflected a substantial rebate anticipated from First Energy after project completion. When First Energy decided to halt all further rebates and didn’t rebate Chippewa Schools, Lighting Optimizers, USA paid the rebate to the district – that is integrity.
