In October 2017, more than 450 light fixtures were upgraded to LED at First Choice Market in Walsenburg, which earned owner Hugh Brown a $17,955 rebate, an average of $950 monthly savings on his electric bill the following spring and increased the lifespan of the lights nearly eight times.

Two grocers burned out on high energy bills received rebates totaling nearly $30,000 for retrofitting their stores with LED lighting.

The grocers’ faces lit up when they spoke about how the upgrades and rebates helped them serve their communities.

“It took us from LED being a good idea to a great idea because we were able to receive that rebate back from San Isabel and utilized that in other areas for other things,” said First Choice Market Owner Hugh Brown as he passionately spoke about the importance to the community for him to have a sustainable business plan.

Pueblo County School District 70 is saving more than half-a-million dollars thanks to the $110,000 commercial lighting rebate and about $414,000 in anticipated electric bill cost-savings.

“The main thing that helped pay for the repairs was retrofitting the old lights to LED. Lighting rebates were a huge factor in making the Energy Performance Contract work,” explained District 70’s Director of Business Services TJ Vinci, who oversaw the project.

Every accessible light bulb and fixture that could be retrofitted with LED in every District 70 building was upgraded, except for some football stadium lights. Read more…
