5 Reasons to Convert Your Signs to LED

February 26, 2016

For years now illuminated store front signs have being using LED technology and it only makes good business sense.

1. Up to 90 per cent more efficient than fluorescent or neon systems with the same light output.

2. Lower energy costs.

3. Lower voltage (50 volts compared 10,000 volts or more) poses less fire and property risk, helping with lower insurance premiums.

4. 50,000 to 100,000 hour product life, resulting in fewer system changes and disruptions, and lower maintenance costs.

5. Rebate offers up to 50% directly from Manitoba Hydro.


How does this help my existing business you ask? If you already have older signs that use fluorescent or neon technology there is still hope and reason #5 maybe the most compelling. At this time MB Hydro currently still offers rebates through their Commercial Lighting Program (CLP) that can help your business go green and make the move to more reliable and energy efficient lighting.
