Commercial Lighting: Why LEDs are a Smart Investment

In recent years commercial LED lighting has emerged as a revolutionary renewable energy solution. Commercial LED lighting refers to the use of LEDs (light emitting diodes) in commercial settings such as offices, retail stores, warehouses, and other commercial buildings. LED lighting has gained popularity as a more energy-efficient and cost-effective alternative to traditional lighting technologies such as incandescent, halogen or fluorescent.

LEDs and Energy Efficiency

At Renewable Energy Solutions we champion commercial LED lighting due to its multitude of benefits. LED can be extremely beneficial as they are more efficient and use less energy than traditional bulbs, LED bulbs use up to 90% less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs  and up to 50% less energy than fluorescent bulbs.


One of the most significant advantages of commercial LED lighting is its unparalleled energy efficiency. Unlike traditional lighting options, LEDs convert a higher percentage of energy into light rather than heat, making them far more efficient. This could help businesses to significantly reduce their energy consumption, potentially resulting in lower electricity bills and a smaller environmental footprint. This energy efficiency aligns with the growing emphasis on sustainability and green practices in today’s business landscape.

LED Lifespan

LEDs boast an impressive lifespan that far surpasses traditional lighting options. The average lifespan of an LED bulb is around 25,000 to 50,000 hours, compared to the 1,000 to 2,000 hours of incandescent bulbs. This longevity translates into reduced maintenance costs and less frequent replacements, allowing businesses to focus on their operations rather than attending to lighting issues.

LEDs shaping atmosphere

LED lighting can also improve employee productivity and morale. Studies have shown that LED lighting can help to reduce headaches, eyestrain, and fatigue. It can also create a more positive and productive work environment. This positive impact also affects customers.


In a customer-based environment, studies show links between LED lighting and high customer satisfaction levels due to an improved store atmosphere and a more pleasant shopping environment. The LEDs also highlighted products more effectively, further increasing the overall aesthetic of the store and enhancing sales.

How can we help?

At Renewable Energy Solutions we offer smart lighting controls for commercial LED lighting in order to further enhance a business’ operations. We can install features such as lighting scheduling, occupancy sensing, dimming capabilities and remote management. These features provide amplified automation and flexibility, resulting in further energy savings and help to reduce overall expenditure.


Though initial costs may seem more expensive to install than traditional lighting, the expenses saved in the long run will be consequential to your business; think of it as an investment, not only for your business, but for the planet.
