With better quality light, productivity, safety, accuracy and learning all improve dramatically. Through our Energy Savings Share Program, the cost of upgrading your lighting can be LESS than what you spend now to keep your existing lighting on = Immediate Positive Cash Flow.
With our advanced, Wireless Lighting Controls, the savings become event more significant. Our Wireless Controls and Wireless Motion Sensor technology improves parking lot safety, too. State Rebates: We will file for any available rebates on your behalf as part of our comphrehensive services.
Tax Savings: The 179D Federal Tax Deduction can provide significant tax savings. We have the expertise to maximize this benefit for your company.
Upgrading all the lighting in any commercial, industrial facility to LED Fixtures will provide the greatest savings and benefits. All our fixtures come with dimmable drivers so adding controls from the beginning OR later is always a possibility.
For exterior parking lot lighting, the savings are very significant. Paybacks are now always between 12 and 36 months with the state rebates. This translates into an Annual IRR of 33% to 100% – Year after Year for the life of the LED!
The first is the health and happiness of the people directly affected by this type of lighting. There is no debating that LED lighting is more humane. The color spectrum is better. The lamps are cooler. The light is stable. And, the noise pollution is reduced. People tend to behave well under better lighting solutions.
Sustainable Solution #4) Air Destratification: Hot air rises and cold air sinks (Air Stratification) and traditional HVAC solutions struggle to keep the air temperatures even within a vertical space. Our Air Fans are mounted 6” from the roof deck and drive that overheated, stale air all the way to the floor, turning it into a virtual heat sink, and then thoroughly mixing it. Within 1 day, any space will become dramatically more comfortable.The energy savings will be 25% or more all winter in the NE and 10-15% all summer – and moving air is more comfortable. As a bonus, the LED high bays will last longer and perform better if they are not stuck in stagnant, overheated air. In fact, many LED High Bay manufacturers will void the warranty if their fixtures are in constant 1250 or higher air temperatures!
Metal Halide fixtures used to be the norm in plants, warehouses, and parking garages. They provided a lot of light. One of the disadvantages of these fixtures is that they require a ballast in the housing that can be noisy. Imagine a manufacturing facility with hundreds or thousands of buzzing ballasts. LED lighting will reduce this kind of noise pollution.
As an example: If you have 50W MR16’s and we replace them with 7W LED MR16’s, you will save 86% on energy. Since they last 17 times as long, the maintenance savings = 94%! In addition, since Halogen MRI’s run at 200° (try touching one bare handed when they’re on!), the HVAC savings will be an additional 50% of the energy savings!
We personally oversee every installation and will be there – on site – to ensure everything has been installed properly and that you are 100% satisfied with the results.
It is possible to retrofit older industrial lighting fixtures into energy efficient and quiet LED fixtures. We can survey your lighting to determine if retrofitting is a cost effective option for you. Whether you retrofit or choose new lighting, the main objective is the comfort level and productivity of your work force. Better quality lighting always equates to higher output and happier/healthier employees.
Another giant commercial energy user is the industrial and manufacturing sectors. Many manufacturing plants run 2 or 3 shifts per day, requiring 24 hours of interior lighting and 12 hours of exterior lighting. Manufacturing facilities generally have tall, open ceiling bays that require very large and many fixtures to make sure the appropriate foot-candles of light are reaching the floor and work surfaces.
A Greener NJ, LLC proudly offers excellent solutions for the lighting any interior commercial space with our industry leading LED Industrial Lighting Fixtures, LED Lighting Controls, our Air Destratification Fans, and our SunTracker Active Skylights. Combining all FOUR Sustainable Solutions will dramatically lower the cost of operation by as much as 70% or more while significantly improving productivity, safety, accuracy, comfort, and learning – all of which dwarf the energy savings.
Next are the obvious environmental benefits. Again, less heat output and less noise pollution. There is less waste for our landfills because the bulbs last thousands of hours. Likewise, there is less manufacturing required because the bulbs last so long. The reduced carbon footprint on our environmental is commendable. Energy consumption is considerably reduced.
Hotel pool and patio areas, as well as walkways, do well with ground level outdoor lighting. We can provide bollards with LED lamps, step lights, or even solar powered options. Whatever your hospitality lighting needs, a complete retrofit and upgrade to LED fixtures is a tremendous savings in overhead costs. Hotels are notorious for high energy costs due to lighting, as they require well lit, safe areas 24/7. Lighting alone can be 40% or more of utility expenses.
LED lighting is gentler on the human eye and has a wider spectrum of colors. Unlike a fluorescent or incandescent bulb, there isn’t perceivable movement within the light source. Traditional bulbs have movement of light between two sources or filaments. LEDs move in one direction. There is no flickering sensation of the emitted light.
Sustainable Solution #4) LED Lighting Controls. We offer much more than simple on/off motion sensing. If daylighting is part of the solution, we highly recommend our wireless dimming/control system that can be operated from any phone or tablet anywhere in the world! And dimming an LED fixture is a tremendous thing to do. When an LED is dimmed, the wattage is reduced twice as much as the lumen output, so no LED should run at full power. A 20% drop in wattage would be an 8% to 10% drop in lumens, which no one will notice off the top. Doing so makes the LEDs and electronic components work less hard, thereby increasing the rated life by 20%!
Whether it is a big box store, a supermarket, or a strip shopping center, the goal is to provide a comfortable and safe shopping experience for all customers. The proper lighting can help people feel happier and more engaged while shopping. A well lit parking lot can make everyone feel safer.

In schools, LED lighting provides superior quality at the proper color temperatures to stimulate alertness and learning. These new LED fixtures also feature Daylight Harvesting Sensors so the fixtures nearest the windows will use less energy than the fixtures furthest from the windows. We even have color tunable fixtures that mimic the various color temperatures of daylight – Human Centric Lighting. This has profound benefits to school children and their teachers. Human Centric Lighting is beneficial for adults in offices, too!
LED lights can be one directional. This works well in manufacturing plants where high bay lighting fixtures are needed to illuminate surfaces below and not upward.
We will show you, in however much detail you desire, how much you will save and how quickly: and if you want to, we will track your savings post installation.
Lighting costs are a significant part of any facilities budget – on average, 19% of the total energy usage of any building – often more. We offer LED lighting solutions that can significantly reduce the cost of your lighting – 50% to over 90% – while dramatically improving the quality of the lighting – in ways never imagined.
A Greener NJ, LLC can also arrange for optional 100% financing that is almost always Cash Positive from the beginning. This frees up cash flow and other lines of credit while allowing the project to move forward while letting the energy and maintenance savings pay for it all.
Our LED lighting solutions are never a compromise! Included in our comprehensive service are free lighting analysis, ROI payback analysis, and utility analysis. We are also experts in obtaining all availible rebates in every state that offers them.
‘We have direct access to over two dozen manufacturers to insure we provide the best products at the best price for your unique facility!’
Compared to traditional low voltage lighting, like PAR and MR lamps, LED lamps do not get so hot that they can’t be touched. We have witnessed situations where MR-16 bulbs have actually melted or damaged merchandise that they were placed too close to in retail shops. Low voltage fixtures also require a transformer. Multiple transformers can cause a vibrating noise that can be disturbing and stressful.
Sustainable Solution #1)Our SunTracker Active Skylight brings in abundant, fully diffused natural daylight from an hour past dawn to an hour before sunset, all with no heat gain, HVAC loss, glare, or UV damage.
Dimming the lights based on the activity within the space, with the upper limit based on how much daylight is coming in, will provide incredible energy savings while potentially doubling the rated life! This adds tremendous value to any project – both in an additional 10-30% energy savings and an increase in rated life.

The human eye also perceives LED lighting to be cleaner and brighter, even at the same footcandle reading. LED lighting solutions now come in a much wider variety of color temperatures and beam angles (light distribution) than traditional lighting offers. We even offer tunable color temperature LED lamps and fixtures based on the latest NASA and university research on Human Centric Lighting.
The most important thing to remember is – your situation, your facility is completely unique. We will evaluate your situation carefully and thoroughly and provide you with the best solutions for your needs, both in price and quality.
SunTracker daylighting solutions are active skylights we use to introduce natural light into your space. Natural daylight is essential for optimal performance. Our SunTracker Active Skylight features a Solar Powered GPS Motor.
This keeps three highly reflective aluminum mirrors in perfect alignment with the sun throughout the day to illuminate buildings with abundant, free, healthy, fully diffused, natural daylight. Infectious Air Purification uses a patented UV-C purification system to reduce bacteria and fungi from the air.
This device is uniquely designed by combining an ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) chamber and air circulating fans with an overhead ceiling light. Air Destrat Fan installation provides thermal equalization of interior hot (rising) and cold (falling) air using patented ceiling mounted turbines to address the air destratification needs of most facilities, resulting in 10-35% savings in HVAC costs.
This system provides maximum comfort level to building occupants. Energy Saving Roofs are liquid coatings consisting of Kevlar, titanium, ceramic silica and a bonding agent that adhere to your existing or new roof to reflect UV rays and deter leaks.
This is a taxable deduction.
While all four sustainable solutions are would be tremendous to implement and will improve productivity beyond anyone’s comprehension, we fully understand each company needs to proceed however they can.
Working in a windowless office with a drop ceiling filled with 2×4 fluorescent lights is so common, yet very stressful. Fluorescent lighting can cause eye strain and fatigue. The movement of the light is annoying to many. The color is unnatural. The ballasts are noisy. Employees may have a tendency to want to take breaks frequently or to go outside to experience natural daylight.
Lobbies can benefit from chandelier and recessed lighting combinations. Both traditional and contemporary chandeliers are widely available with LED lamps. Recessed LED lighting options are also widely available. Wall sconces, placed on timed motion sensors, work nicely in hotel hallways.
Sustainable Solution #2)Replace every HID Fixture – Metal Halide, HPS (High Pressure Sodium), Halogen, or T12, T8 or T5 Fluorescent fixture with our energy-efficient LED Industrial Lighting High Bays.While there are several ways to retrofit your existing fixtures, nothing can compare with new LED fixtures with optics specifically designed for industrial lighting.Upgrading to LED industrial lighting will lower your energy usage by 50% to over 70% while dramatically improving the quality of the light! We often double, even triple the old light levels, at a better color temperature which makes everything look better with more accurate colors – while still using far less energy.
Commercial kitchens require adequate lighting with cool lamps. Food prep areas need to be well lit. Lamps need to be cooler because the kitchen is already warm enough. Specialty, removable lenses can be placed over LED ceiling fixtures to allow for easier cleaning of grease and smoke.

Switching from fluorescent interior lighting to LED can provide better brightness and offer a better color spectrum so that items look as they will actually appear once outside the store. Making the switch from high or low pressure sodium lamps on the exterior will increase visibility and get rid of that dated orange glow. Both of these retrofits are likely to increase retail sales and will definitely decrease energy costs.
We can help you reduce your ceiling fixture output by introducing LED task lighting that is controlled by each individual employee. Everyone has different needs when it comes to task lighting. Adding focused task lighting under cabinets or on walls is actually a compassionate thing to do, especially for those with compromised vision. Employees can be encouraged to turn off task lighting when they get up from their desks to save energy. Our wireless dimming capability can help you reduce energy output during times when the office is not 100% in use.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could provide more energy saving and naturally colored light for your office environment? The gain for your company would be grateful and motivated employees who don’t mind being in the office. It is truly amazing what good LED lighting can do for mood and work ethic.
However, if they are track lights in a museum only open 5 hours a day 4 days a week – the payback will be much longer. But the LEDs will also last much longer – literally decades. And since LEDs emit no UV light, it’s better for the artwork. And with the truer color temperatures, the artwork will look better, too.
Restaurant dining areas can be either intimate for fine dining or bright and cheerful for fast food. Fine dining establishments can greatly benefit from LED lighting that is placed on rheostat dimmers. For more casual dining, brighter lights with the appropriate color spectrum will help make the food look more appetizing. Fluorescent lighting often makes food look a bit off in color. We have thin, easy to conceal, strip lighting options for bars that are very popular. LED strips can provide continuous low-level light at the foot rail or on the underside of the bar top. It is also used on shelving to subtly highlight the bottle display. In bars with TVs, it is very important to provide lighting solutions that won’t produce screen glare.
We will go over all the potential Returns on Investments and costs associated with upgrading your current commercial facility or building a new facility. We specialize in comprehensive sustainable solutions that are more than just saving money on energy.
With LED lighting and controls you have the ability to create unique atmospheres in different areas of your store to further enhance your shoppers’ experiences. We can set up your lighting controls to coincide with the amount of daylight the center or store receives. This will save even more on energy costs during a sunny day. Wireless motion detectors can be installed to reduce lighting costs on the exterior.
We also have Wireless Dimming Controls that will automatically dim the lights up to 70% or whatever your acceptable after-hours light level is. This increases savings, lowers the payback time by several more months, improves the annual IRR, and lengthens the rated life of the LEDs! We can also provide motion sensors with immediate cell phone notification for added security.
LED, or light emitting diode, is a light source that uses a diode instead of a filament. A diode moves electrons inside of a semiconductor, resulting in light. These electrons permit current to flow in only one direction. The light created within these diodes is cool, whereas incandescent light is heated by the filaments. The coolness of the light makes LEDs safer, as well as reducing building cooling costs. LEDs use 20% of the energy of other traditional lighting sources. As well, LED bulbs can last up to 30 times longer than conventional incandescent or fluorescent bulbs.
We also facilitate and handle the rebate process on your behalf at no additional cost, which adds to your savings and improves the ROI payback.
Hotel lobbies and hallways generally need more lighting than guestrooms and restaurant dining or bar areas, where you might be looking for more intimate ambiance. Commercial kitchens, however, need plenty of lighting with cooler lamps. This is where we can help with highly customized lighting solutions.
There is no downside to upgrading office lighting to LEDs. The cost savings are tremendous, and the employee output is sure to increase productivity and profits.
Once approved by the client, A Greener NJ, LLC submits all rebates, coordinates with either our client’s electrician, their in-house staff, or we will arrange for one of the several electricians we work with to provide the qualified installation services. We then oversee the entire installation to insure everything is installed and that everyclient’s expectations are exceeded.
Savings with LED lighting solutions in New Jersey is very straight forward – a saved watt is a saved watt. All our ROI calculations are clear and transparent. However, it depends on several factors.
While LED bulbs still cost more than traditional bulbs, they last thousands of hours. The return on investment is greater than the upfront expense. Plus, the cost of maintenance to change out lamps is greatly reduced. Your maintenance personnel can spend their time more efficiently.
We have studied the positive impact that installing or upgrading to LED lighting has on human productivity and improved profitability. There are several factors to consider.
For brand recognition, we can use dynamic LED displays for signage, or place appropriate LED lights over your existing sign or entrance awning.
