An Attractive Funding Solution

Lighting-as-a-Service (LaaS) presents an attractive alternative to the traditional funding approach for upgrading lighting systems. Rather than dealing with the costs, challenges, and risks themselves, public and private organizations can partner with SmartWatt to assume the financial, technical, design, installation and management responsibilities associated with upgrading their lighting systems. SmartWatt will fund and install a custom-designed long-life, high-efficiency lighting system. No capital is required. A portion of the money saved on reduced energy bills is used as a monthly payment for the upgraded lighting. It’s a stress- and risk-free way to optimize lighting systems while making it cash-flow positive from day one.

Specific benefits include:

  • No capital investment required
  • Reduced operating costs
  • Reduced maintenance costs
  • Improved employee morale and productivity
  • Reduced carbon emissions
