Look for lighting companies that offer a wide range of financing options, as facility-wide LED upgrades can be a large investment. Some lighting providers may coordinate utility rebates and tax incentives that can reduce the ROI to less than a year. Some lighting companies offer extended payback periods that price payments based on the energy savings the customer obtains. If the cost of a facility-wide upgrade is insurmountable, consider which areas could benefit most from an LED upgrade and start there.
Merits of LED technology include improved efficiency, improved light quality, and improved durability. The ways that these benefits translate to the realm of food safety represents a step forward for the industry and its customers—any improvement in safety is a boost to the bottom line.
