Energy efficiency and savings are ever-present topics in the construction world and its no different at Charles C. Brandt. Just last month Rob Annee from Flex Green Lighting came to our office to discuss ways we can provide smart solutions in regards to both energy and cost savings. (Is this true? Or was he just looking at our lights?)
Flex Green is an Indianapolis-based consulting company and distributor of LED lights. They work directly with contractors and architecture firms to provide energy savings and solutions for businesses. With many years of experience, Flex Green has been a pioneer both in the Indianapolis area as well as across the country in providing businesses with LED technology and the knowledge to improve overall energy savings.
Annee says that just by switching to LED lighting their clients are able to reduce energy consumption by up to 80 percent. And with energy costs always rising, the ROIs of these projects are exceptionally quick.
Flex Green also regularly helps companies achieve LEED certifications. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, is a 'green rating system' of sorts that is used to asses buildings.
Being LEED certified can save businesses money as well as resources. The certification process looks at everything from what materials were used in the building's construction to how the energy of the building is created and even down to the satisfaction and health of its employees. It truly is an all encompassing certification program that is recognized nationally.
By making just a few small, but crucial, changes can significantly improve efficiency and save more money than one would think in the long run.
