Our Lighting Upgrade Process Delivers Performance

The EPL lighting upgrade process makes a difference every step of the way.

Our Process


Jeanne Schommer, Piggly Wiggly of Cottage Grove

“Working with EPL was exciting, both personally and as a business owner. The cost savings we have already realized through committing to all LED lighting surpassed what we imagined. The team was professional and worked off hours to complete the project. The Focus on Energy Rebate form was easy to complete and Tyler did a great job helping us. When the lighting hue did not present the way we wanted in our meat department, Rod (and staff) came in immediately to assess and fix the issue. If we had questions, EPL had answers! Our customers and staff noticed the difference immediately in our lighting. Despite EPL working on very large projects, the personal touch in our discussions was excellent. We felt as if we were their main client at all times, and I know we are just a small fish in the large sea of EPL’s projects.

We continue to be amazed at the fast paced and expanding technology that EPL brings to all businesses. We would highly recommend EPL to any consumer. We are proud they assisted us in our lighting project.”

“Electrical costs are lower. Staff appreciate that the light adjusts in the evening and gives you a feeling of day ending and time for bed. Lighting is 110% improved from what we had before.”

– Administrator Michelle Borreson, Gundersen Health Systems Tweeten Care Center

“We have been very happy with the energy efficient lighting system that was installed by Energy Performance Lighting. The quality and color of light is extraordinary, so we had the same fixtures installed in our new Olympic size rink addition at our facility. We are very happy and would recommend Energy Performance Lighting to address your energy efficient lighting needs.”

– Don Chilson, Manager, Sam Houston State University

HQ Lighting Upgrade Products

“What Energy Performance Lighting does better than anyone else is install quality products in an efficient manner with people who know what they’re doing, with no problems or surprises, and with the best overall outcomes. Low bids don’t work. You can’t put in cheap stuff and expect it to perform and last.”

– Tamara Sondgeroth, Midwest Lighting Institute
