LED Exit Sign and Retrofit Kit

LED Exit Sign:

  • Save on electricity costs – Every non-LED exit sign you have can cost you an extra $20 a year in electricity costs. Make the switch to LED and start saving every month.
  • Cut maintenance costs – Don’t lose money and waste man hours replacing bulbs. LED exit signs last for up to 12 years or 100,000 hours! That’s over a decade between bulb changes.
  • Improve safety – Long lasting LED exit signs also decrease the risk of having signs out of service in an emergency situation, increasing safety.

LED Exit Sign Retrofit Kit:

  • Retrofit kits provide an easy and extremely cost effective way to upgrade your exit signs, while getting the long life and energy saving benefits of a new fixture.
  • Cost effective – After the takeCHARGE rebate, the cost of an LED retrofit kit is often less than $10. An LED upgrade can save you $20 a year on your electricity costs, so it can pay for itself in six months!
  • Easy to install – You can install the kit yourself. It’s as easy as changing a light bulb!


To be eligible your business must have an active electricity account and reside in an existing building. Applies to retrofit only. .
