Commercial LED Lighting Opportunity:  The Newmark Holding initiative is one of the largest and most comprehensive commercial LED base building retrofits of its type in the U.S. Newmark Holdings is a vertically integrated real estate company with a 63-year-history of hands-on asset management and a portfolio of more than 10 million square feet of commercial properties throughout New York City. Base building areas often run with 24 x 7 hours of operation, presenting the highest ROI for lighting retrofits.

Commercial LED Retrofit Solution: The complexity of the different common areas and existing lighting across the portfolio resulted in the specification of more than 100 different LED fixtures, lamps and retrofits and required thousands of hours of auditing, manufacturing, rebate administration, and logistics by Independence LED Lighting.

Commercial LED Savings Results:  The cost savings across the 24 properties in this benchmark project will reach $10 million over the 10 year warranty of the Independence LED lights. Favorable ConEdison rebate incentives lift ROI to over 65% with payback in less than 1.5 years.
