Who is… The Arizona Self Storage Association’s mission is to strengthen the self-storage industry in Arizona, promoting professional standards and quality, and presenting a unified voice on issues affecting the industry in the state and in its communities
Why we are members… Self-storage owners and operators provide an essential service to many people at one point or another in their lives. Having your valuables secured provides peace of mind. Lighting plays a huge role in that piece of mind and self-storage facilities tend to be some of the biggest “energy-wasters” out there. By working with the AZSA we are educating their members on the benefits of energy-efficient lighting.
Who is… The International Crime Free Association is an innovative, law enforcement based crime prevention solution designed to help keep illegal activity off rental property. Developed in 1992 the program has spread to nearly 2,000 cities in 44 US States and 10 other countries.
Why we are members… Lighting plays an enormous role in crime prevention. We work with rental property owners to assess their existing lighting for more than electricity savings – we also help them with premise liability and site design. A well designed and implemented lighting system can greatly reduce crime, improve renter sentiment and of course save money.
World Impact: 20% of the electricity consumed in the world is used for lighting. LED Lighting, being 50-90% more energy efficient than traditional lighting, could reduce the world’s electricity use by 12-15%.
Inevitable Change: US federal lighting efficiency standards starting in 2012 weed out incandescent bulbs altogether. In 2012, 100-watt incandescent bulbs can no longer be made, with 75-watt bulbs phasing out in 2013, and 60- and 40-watt bulbs disappearing in 2014.
Improved Productivity: Workers report less fatigue when working long hours under LED light because of less eye strain. Studies have shown that workers can be 6-8% more productive under LED light due to less fatigue and eye strain.
Potential Tax Savings: Depending on how your purchase is financed, LED lighting upgrades could qualify as capital improvements which can be depreciated over time or as a tax-deductable straight line expense. Consult your tax advisor for potential tax savings.
Energy Rebates: Many municipalities and electricity providers sponsor Rebate Programs to encourage energy efficient lighting retrofit projects. For 2013, Salt River Project (SRP), is offering a $0.30 per watt Rebate. This means that for every 1000 watts of lighting that is saved SRP will rebate $300 of the purchase price of an LED Lighting Upgrade.
85% Energy Savings: LED lighting retrofits can offer businesses two key benefits: some fixtures can deliver up to an 85 percent energy savings and the life span of LEDs average about 50,000 hours, reports Retrofit Magazine.
Better for the Environment: LED lights are 100% recyclable. They do not contain any mercury or other harmful elements. LED lights have the smallest carbon footprint of any light source other than the sun!
