Completes the most LED Retrofits in New York City hotels and restaurants

NEW YORK, NY -– Smart Lighting (SL) has announced a record inaugural year, completing more than a dozen LED retrofits in New York-based hotels and restaurants since August 2011.

A startup that entered the New York lighting space in April 2011, Smart Lighting provides all-inclusive LED retrofit servicing that incorporates audits, design, installation and maintenance. Smart Lighting also offers financing solutions that allow its clients to experience net lighting cost savings of 50-70% post retrofit with no upfront costs. Smart Lighting exclusively uses brand-name, Energy Star® Approved LED bulbs and also offers a warranty that covers all maintenance on its bulbs for 3-5 years.

“Smart Lighting’s expertise is in our ability to maintain and even improve our clients’ lighting while helping them dramatically cut their energy usage and costs,” said CEO Dan Kaufman. “It’s a win-win situation that allows our customers to save money while also helping the environment.”

To date, Smart Lighting’s noteworthy clientele includes The Kimberly Hotel, The Hotel Stanford, Union Square Café, Heartland Brewery Chophouse, and Sparks Steakhouse, among others.

Hotel Stanford General Manager Elizabeth Kwon Liu comments: “Smart Lighting’s service from start to finish has been exemplary and far exceeds that of all other Lighting Consultants I have ever dealt. They made it easy for us to save and provided us with the information needed so that we can continue to generate real cost savings in the future. I would recommend Smart Lighting Systems to anyone.”

Smart Lighting also won the title of Most Valuable Partner (MVP) Market Partner by ConEd’s Green Team as part of its Commercial and Industrial (C&I) Energy Efficiency Program 2011 Market Partner Award winners. Recipients were chosen among the approved C&I Program Market Partner roster of approximately 500 member companies and were honored on October 26, 2011 at Manhattan’s elite Club 101.
