LED Lighting – Sustainable and Energy Efficiency rebates

United Lamp has always focused on new lighting technologies and is currently using LED lighting, (New fixtures, replacement lamps) Controls, (Daylight, occupancy) and Dimming systems.

Ed Bray, owner and professional lighting specialist, (Lighting Certified, member IESNA) says:

“LED lighting is the wave of the future. Long life, energy and maintenance savings make LED’s one of our first choices when designing new or existing lighting system.”

"When the big box stores put the mom and pops out of business, United Lamp Supply figured it out, after all, opening a retail counter for customers while shifting the bulk of its business to commercial buyers. Today, while devoted walk-ins make up only about 10 percent of business, those visitors are still treated like family, Bray says. The same goes for the larger, commercial accounts that make up the bulk of United Lamp Supply’s customer base."
