WADE ARNOLD | PROPERTY OWNER 1750 55th St. LLC
When the opportunity presented itself to upgrade the lighting in our building while taking advantage of the excellent rebates being offered by both Xcel Energy and Boulder County we decided that it was an opportunity that we could not in good conscience pass on. The lighting upgrade has provided the building with new state of the art lighting fixtures which will help with maintenance, provide better light quality and reduce the energy consumed in this property. We believe this will further improve Tenant enjoyment while at the same time reduce their utility costs and energy consumption. Overall we viewed this as a win-win situation.

We wanted to become "more green" and lessen our carbon footprint. And we wanted to save money, if possible, on our energy costs. We saw a 30% decrease in energy bills--this project has been saving us between $1,000 - $1,200/month in energy costs!" The quality of the new lights is better than we had before--it is a cleaner light.
