Small Business Programs
One of the biggest changes recently has been the influx in specific Small Business Programs that are spearheaded by your own local utility company. The only catch is that the programs fill up quickly. If you’re a small business owner and want to see what a retrofit program can do for you, we highly encourage you to contact us today.
Little to No Out-Of-Pocket Expense
With a lot of the small business programs, the installer gets paid directly from the utility company. This means that for smaller jobs you will only have to pay very little upfront and could still even get some of that back in the form of a State or Federal rebate. It’s the utility company’s way of saying “thank you” for helping them reduce the burden on the grid and get them more energy compliant with new government regulations. Plus, in those “additional fees” on your bill, you’ve been paying into the program without knowing it. You might as well get some of that money back.
There is Urgency
Most of the programs that are run through a utility company have limited funds available and the programs are instituted on a year-by-year basis. When the money for the program is gone, it’s gone. We have a direct communication line with the utility companies to make sure that the funds are available and your project can continue as planned. So if someone else is virtually paying for your project, and every subsequent day once the install is complete your electricity bill will be reduced, why wouldn’t you take advantage of the program?

"The entire project went just as promised. The cost, timing of installation and financing were right on target. Now that the retrofitted lights have been in place for a number of months, we have been able to realize savings of up to 40% on our electrical usage compared to previous years. Best of all, our staff members love the better, brighter, more-consistent lighting in our building."
Troy Clogg, Troy Clogg Landscape Associates
"The new lighting has greatly improved productivity, because the guys in the shop can see what they’re doing now. And we have fewer fixtures, which will save us money on our electricity. I love the motion sensors, which turn the lights on or off, depending on whether anyone is in the area. The sensors are great money-savers. Our return on investment is projected to be two or three year, so the project will pay for itself in a relatively short period of time."
Pat Iaquinto, Midwest Glass Fabricators, Inc.
"GPS helped us procure $7,000 in DTE Energy rebates toward the entire $35,000 project and prepared a work plan for an energy-saving grant application. They did a good job on the installation, and we’re satisfied with their work. Now we’re waiting to see the results of these energy cost-saving measures."
Matthew Schindewolf, City of Brighton DPS
"I was very pleased with the financing advice and the installation work. Not only did I finance the roof replacement and refinance the property loan, but I also used the savings to pay for the entire retrofitting. The quality of lighting is much better now, especially in our showroom, and our building is more environmentally friendly. I also anticipate significant energy savings in the future. All in all, this has been a very positive experience."
Bruce Bullard, Office Furniture Solutions
"Mr. Gobeille became my consultant and investigated ALL the products with regard to savings, biggest rebates and longest warranties."
"His loyalty was to us and not the lighting guys. He took the time I didn't have and investigated all the products and met with all the vendors. We are extremely satisfied with his hard work, long hours and recommendations to us on what he sees as the perfect fit for our lighting needs at Champion Chevrolet."
