Energy Efficiency- It's what Retrofitting is All About

Retrofitting is all about conserving and cutting energy costs. The Sterling Group, Inc. is dedicated to following "green" standards when performing retrofitting, installation and renovations. We went "green" before other lighting installation companies recognized the importance of it. Here's how:

  • When we audit, we develop plans for green renovations.
  • Our experts recycle old lamps and ballasts according to legal codes and industry standards.
  • Our experts package and dispose of waste the correct way. No shortcuts are taken.
  • We coordinate shipping of used materials to recycling facilities.

The government has implemented "green" legislation and continues to update these standards regularly. Companies adhering to and upgrading to these new standards see big returns on their retrofit investments in form of tax breaks. Check out the resources below to learn more.
