LED Signs (or Electronic Message Centers) are becoming more prevalent than ever. Years ago there were just a handful of amber orange colored signs that read only the time and temperature. Today, they are being used by just about every type of business—billboards, restaurants, schools, and churches are just a few of early adopters of the LED sign technology. It’s obvious that LED signs are here to stay, but why are they becoming so popular? Take a look at these top 10 selling points of LED signs:
Financing options for energy-efficient upgrades and projects have been few and far between the last several decades. However, that is starting to change as of lately. Below you'll discover how you can overcome a lack of budget or present cash to progress with your proposed energy efficiency project.
Lack of budget is the number one reason energy efficiency projects don’t get approved.
Energy efficiency projects require upfront investments, which many business owners have not budgeted. As a result, many projects don’t move forward due to lack of available capital, despite often-impressive ROIs and short payback periods.
Why Use Energy Audit Software?
Energy audits are extremely labor intensive, requiring physical walk throughs, large amounts of manual data collection and analysis of energy consumption. In order to do this, usually at least one year of utility bills have to be gathered and analyzed. For seasonality and benchmarking, utility bills dating back multiple years becomes necessary. Collecting, organizing, analyzing, and reporting all this data manually is quite an ordeal, which is why energy auditing software offerings have been developed and are gaining popularity.
The most tried and true tactic of marketing any service or product is talking about how much money the person will save by switching to that product. The same is true for any energy efficiency company marketing their products and services - ultimately, the biggest selling point for energy saving projects is how much money businesses can save by rethinking their approach to energy usage. However, in an effort to stand apart from the crowd, ESCOs also need to differentiate themselves.
Selling energy efficiency should be easy right? Who does not want to save energy and thus save money? Everyone wants to reduce their carbon footprint, and businesses want to save money and improve their profitability. The savings are obvious and the technology is proven. Why, then, are substantial energy projects so hard to get sold and implemented?
