LED lighting Retrofits and Incentives
Go Green Las Vegas With Efficient LED Lighting.
If you have been considering changing your lighting to LED, there may never be a better time than the present. Whether you are a business or a private community, NV Energy offers rebates for LED retrofits that will help defray the costs of the conversion and, of course, you will reap the benefits of lower power consumption (lower electric bills) and the decreased maintenance required for LED lighting.
Typically, retrofits qualify for rebates from $0.10 to $0.25 per watt reduced. So those 400W High Pressure Sodium area lights might be replaced with 100W LED lights and receive up to $91.25 per light retrofitted.
Call Eco Electric today to find out how you can qualify for rebates, lower your energy consumption and electric bills, reduce maintenance costs, and help the environment.

What Is LED?
Standing for light emitting diode, LED refers to the technology used to create this particular style of light. An electrical current is used to create the light around the diode. The standard LED contains two terminals that focus the light to emit in a single path to create a more natural looking light source that offers high efficiency.
How is LED lighting different than other light sources, such as incandescent and CFL?
LED lighting differs from incandescent and compact fluorescent lighting in several ways. When designed well, LED lighting can be more efficient, durable, versatile and longer lasting.
LED lighting products use light emitting diodes to produce light very efficiently. An electrical current passed through semiconductor material illuminates the tiny light sources we call LEDs. The heat produced is absorbed into a heat sink.
Common LED colors include amber, red, green, and blue. There is actually no such thing as a “white” LED. To get white light the kind we use for lighting our homes and offices, different color LEDs are mixed or covered with a phosphor material that converts the color of the light. The phosphor is the yellow material you can see on some LED products.� Colored LEDs are widely used as signal lights and indicator lights, like the power button on a computer.
LEDs are now being incorporated into bulbs and fixtures for general lighting applications. LEDs are small and provide unique design opportunities. Some LED bulb solutions may look like familiar light bulbs and some may not but can better match the performance of traditional light bulbs. Some LED light fixtures may have LEDs built–in as a permanent light source.
What Are the Advantages of Using LED Lighting?
Several benefits arise from the use of LEDs over other types of lighting. They include:
- High level of brightness
- High levels of efficiency
- Long lifespan
- Greater reliability
- Less costly to use
- Even color performance
- Climate friendly
