Lighting has the power to ensure a simple task of making a red apple appear red or a hospital environment feel comforting. In reality, lighting the world around us has significant effects on all of us and should be taken seriously. To many people these are not simple tasks and are of extreme importance.

Exterior And Parking Lot Lighting
Maintaining parking lot, building, and sign lighting is a very important part of business and property maintenance. Good lighting is good for business. At Stones River Electric we believe a well-lit facility gives customers, tenants and employees a feeling of security and confidence at night, inviting visitation and increasing revenue. Our service vans and bucket trucks are fully stocked with a complete inventory of lighting replacement parts for servicing most commercial businesses. This reduces your repair time and costs.
Upgrading lighting and other facility electrical systems with energy-efficient technologies provides both long term positive cash flow and immediate energy cost savings of 20% to 40% or more. Additionally, energy-efficient lighting components have service life up to 13 times greater than standard products, resulting in a significant savings in maintenance and replacement costs. The simplest method of reducing energy cost is to replace outdated magnetic ballasts and lamps with newer more energy efficient electronic ballasts and lamps. Other solutions include replacing fixtures, modifying existing fixtures, and installing occupancy sensors. More people and facilities are taking advantage of LED technology, not only because of the reduced energy cost, but also because of drastically reduced maintenance. Regardless of your lighting application, Stones River Electric has the expertise to maximize the power of quality lighting.
Energy Efficient Lighting Upgrades and Retrofits
An energy efficient lighting upgrade is any strategy that reduces the system’s energy use. A lighting retrofit is the practice of replacing components in the system with counterparts that make it consume energy more efficiently. Energy savings are realized over time that can be significant enough to not only pay for the new equipment, but produce a return on the investment. Stones River Electric can assist with incentives and rebates offered by federal, state and local utilities which can speed up the payback process.
With group re-lamping, all the lamps in a given area are replaced at a scheduled time. This method is actually the most cost effective approach and often includes the repairing or replacement of defective parts in the fixtures, such as sockets and ballasts. Also, for maximum light distribution, all reflective surfaces and lenses are thoroughly cleaned. Group re-lamping is an important part of your facility preventative maintenance program.
Stones River Electric applies a variety of lighting control technologies. Depending on your needs we may implement bi-Level switching, timers, various types of sensors, daylight harvesting, contactors and a multitude of combinations to maximize your facility energy consumption. Leave the room, turn off the light. Save 100% of the energy!
