Save Energy


We bring Professionalism, Integrity, Quality & Experience to Your Job & The Electrical Trade.

The popular LED Disc lights (Cree T67) we install use 11 watts of electricity per light.  We can retrofit them to your existing Can light or install new.  Older existing Can lights most likely use 60-100 watts each.  LOOK @ THE SAVINGS.  The heat they create causes discoloration to the trim & a huge loss in energy efficiency!  

7 Disc lights use the same wattage as 1 Can light.   In addition, use of a LED Disc light 3 hours a day would last 45 years with no changing bulbs.  The color renderence is as warm as a standard incandescent light bulb & it doesn't produce that heat.  Choices of 6", 4" & directional.  All dimmable.


Energy Saving LED lighting - Dimmable

Specialty lighting upgrades.  We can hang fixtures Interior & Exterior with a height of 20' ceilings. 

LED Under Cabinet Lights.  We can help you with a layout using a combination of lights.  4" LED Disc lights, an island light & speakers pictured below.
