Well, the common belief in the lighting industry, is that solid-state lighting is the future for many if not all lighting applications. The smart business owner who understands the technology, the benefits and where the industry is going will not settle for the stopgap or “cheaper” option represented by T8 lamps or T8 LEDs. This business person will question the wisdom of paying for two retrofit projects in the span of 3 to 5 years, when you can invest in one LED retrofit for T12 fluorescent lamps – good for the next 10 to 12 years!
The market is flooded with T8s and T8 LEDs with promises of upgraded lighting, etc for cheap. The major drawback to retrofitting with T8s or T8 LEDs is the additional maintenance costs of replacing the compatible electronic ballasts. The newer electronic ballasts have a much higher failure rate and are more expensive. Your local electricians certainly appreciate the extra business resulting from the routine failure of every two or three years of the more expensive electronic ballasts – primarily due to low temperatures in the cooler and freezer cases. Additionally, there is not one utility company offering any rebate or incentive to replace T12 cooler door lamps with T8, T5s or LED T8 Tubes. New for 2013 – High Output T8 LED tubes
With some very attractive utility rebates and incentives for replacing T12 lamps with LED refrigerated display case lighting, now is the ideal time for a LED retrofit. Utility company rebates and incentives range from $25 a door to as much as $100 a door for a premium LED cooler door light.
