Section 1: The benefits of installing LED to decrease the cost and power usage of electric and air conditioning.
LLS's field team evaluates existing lighting, fixtures and electrical systems of your facility. After extensive testing and evaluation, LLS will present a comprehensive plan detailing our recommendations. It will clearly define the solution LLS has determined will maximize your savings in electric, maintenance and Air Conditioning costs. (Should a client have special lighting needs not currently available, LLS has the capability to design and create any type of light and/or fixture needed for your project). LED Lighting Solutions, Inc. is creating its own brand of products. When you see our LED Lighting International (LLS) brand, you will be assured of its quality and consistency. LLS makes certain that we are on the forefront of all developing and available green energy saving lighting technology and this will be reflected in the products that we will honor with our brand. LLS's team of lighting engineers and specialists continually monitor the state of the art in lighting products. There are many instances where we find a product to be more suited for certain applications. We will include that particular product in your re-lamping and our inventory. We are committed to our clients benefit therefore: LLS is continually adding new innovative products to our inventory. Our clients will always benefit from our open minds, innovative design, superior engineering, vigilant project management, and unparalleled customer service.
Section 2: Tax Incentives, Rebates and Grants available
An LLS specialist will be specifically assigned to your project in order to explain the tax credits, and benefits afforded by federal, state,city, town and power suppliers. Your situation may require one or all of these services. We will guide our client through the process, introduce the agent that will handle the case, and work with you on the paper necessary documentation to take advantage these money saving benefits until the process is complete.

Section 5: Fluorescent contain mercury and will be packaged and removed as per EPA regulations
LLS removes, packages, transports and deposits all lamps and equipment containing mercury in an EPA approved facility. The following are considered hazardous lamps and bulbs and must be disposed of as per EPA Regulations; Fluorescent bulbs, which include linear, U-tube and circular fluorescent tubes, bug zappers, tanning bulbs, black lights, germicidal bulbs, high output bulbs, and cold-cathode fluorescent bulbs. High intensity discharge bulbs, which include metal halide, ceramic metal halide, high pressure sodium, and mercury vapor. Mercury short-arc bulbs; and Neon bulbs.
FLUORESCENT LAMP MANAGEMENT REGULATIONS: http://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/8842.html
As of May 2006, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation allows generators to choose whether to manage mercury-containing lamps as hazardous waste or universal waste (see Use of Enforcement Discretion). While handlers of universal wastes meet less stringent standards for storing, transporting, and collecting wastes, they must comply with full hazardous waste requirements for final recycling, treatment, or disposal.
LLS follows the above guide lines for the removal of all florescent lighting. See below: Recycling Mercury Lamps.
Highly efficient, fluorescent lighting is an excellent choice for both financial and environmental reasons. Fluorescent and HID lamps contain mercury, however, and must be managed properly, especially when they become a waste. Tossing mercury lamps in the trash is no longer a lawful option. Disposal of lamps as hazardous waste can be expensive. Recycling spent lamps, however, is a cost-effective disposal alternative.
1. We assess your facility: How many fluorescent and HID lamps do you use? How many do you dispose of each month, or each year? What do your employees do now with spent or broken lamps?
2. We use approved a recycling depositories. See NYSDEC List of Lamp Recyclers or NEWMOA List of Lamp Recyclers for a list of recyclers operating in the Northeast. Your recycler will explain how to properly store spent fluorescents and prepare them for shipping, as well as provide storage containers, transportation and a certificate of recycling. See below for alternatives to recycling companies.
3. We establish a process for collecting and managing used lamps as Universal Waste, designate a safe, dry storage area where the lamps won't be broken. Make sure employees know whom to call when a lamp burns out, or what to do if one breaks. If your building generates small amounts of waste lamps, consider recycling through a "box program." In this type of program you collect spent lamps in a pre-paid, labeled shipping container, purchased from a recycler or distributor. When the container is full, you simply mail it to the recycler. Note: Maine does not permit box program recycling. If your building generates large amounts of waste lamps, recyclers can make regular pick-ups. Also, consider re-lamping in bulk. This could save you money.
4. We package used lamps in Universal Waste-compliant containers. Mark each container with "Universal Waste - Lamps," "Waste Lamps" or "Used Lamps," and the date accumulation began. Get lamps to the recycler within one year.
5. We properly manage broken lamps: make sure that people and pets leave the room, open a window, shut off forced-air heating and air conditioning, and ventilate room for at least 15 minutes. Clean up broken lamps, placing shards and spilled powder in a puncture-resistant, sealed, plastic bag, or bucket. Wear gloves and use a damp cloth to sweep up the powder. Place all clean-up materials in a separate sealed container. Never vacuum lamps; it will simply spread the mercury vapor. You may recycle broken lamps at the same facility as your intact lamps. Do not throw them in the regular trash.
At no cost, LLS will arrange with our client a date and time to survey the facility. The purpose of the survey is to compile all the information we need to determine total energy consumption used before the re-lamping. We use specially designed equipment to measure voltage and current to determine total energy usage at the main panel and lighting panel. Light meters will take readings in offices, work areas, hallways etc. We will conduct a thorough inspection, count and categorize the lamps and bulbs in the facility that will be replaced. With this and other information we determine what LED lamps and bulbs will be selected to match or enhance the color, lumens, spectrum, and temperature and eye comfort of the original lighting. facilities with garages and parking lots, the same procedures will be followed. Of each of the different types of lamps and bulbs we will install sample lighting, When we present our Summary and Proposal you will be able to experience and see the change in light, color and eye comfort while you review our Proposal.
