Flip the switch for a brighter, more energy efficient workplace.

The LED lighting incentives from TVA EnergyRight® and your local power company can improve the quality of light in your facility while helping you save on energy and maintenance costs.

LED lights use less energy than incandescent or fluorescent bulbs and newer LED options can create a more vibrant work environment for your employees or enhance security outside of your facility. Features like occupancy sensors and photocells can conserve energy by automatically turning lights on and off when not needed.

Benefits of LED lighting

  • Lower your monthly energy bill.

  • Minimize waste heat or heat gain.

  • Lower your carbon footprint.

  • Reduce maintenance costs.

  • Compatible with occupancy sensors.
