The Sweet Side of Energy Efficiency

LED lighting upgrades showcase the homemade breads and baked goods in Dot’s Bakery and Coffee shop, a family-run establishment located in L’Anse au Loup, Labrador. takeCHARGE worked with Dot’s to upgrade to LED lighting and it’s paying off. They’re saving over $300 a year on electricity costs, enjoying a brighter, more customer-friendly shop and they got back over $1,850 in rebates.

In Newfoundland and Labrador lighting accounts for about 25% of a business’s electricity use. Lighting is one of the easiest and most cost-effective upgrades you can make to your business. Upgrading to energy efficient lighting, like LED, can save you over 35% on lighting energy costs. They also last longer, saving on replacement lights and maintenance costs. They can even offer better visibility of products which can have a direct impact on increasing impulse purchases.

Warrick Belben, Owner/Operator of Dot’s says “It was a great investment. The rebate provided us with better lighting, help with the initial costs, and the energy savings over time will help pay for the upgrade itself. The takeCHARGE team was great! They worked with us every step of the way.”
