What is a lighting retrofit?

A lighting retrofit involves the replacement of outdated lamps and ballasts with new energy-efficient lighting technology products. There are a wide variety of retrofit system lighting choices available today and the possible ballast/lamp combinations are nearly unlimited. No single retrofit solution will meet all needs. Each must be evaluated based on a combination of the energy savings, which may be achieved, and the light output required to perform the tasks in the area to be retrofitted. Typically manufacturing, warehouse and distribution center facilities realize a significant lighting improvement as result of their upgrade.
