Nomad's, Lavish, Fiddlesticks, Reliquary, Cary Lane, Ver Unica, Nosa Ria, Paolo Shoes, Duke and Duchess, Christopher Elbow Chocolates, Flight 001, and Arlequin Cafe and Wine Bar are the twelve retailers in Hayes Valley who had their lighting system assessed, rebate applied and are now awaiting SFEW approvals and installation in Spring 2013.
The whole process was made extremely simple with New Light Energy Design's "Better Light, Real Savings, Real Easy" full service process.
What each shop has in common is their current lighting system was inefficient and as small businesses they qualify for the new LED technology to upgrade their current lighting system.
LEDs are the better lighting choice because they...
- Improve their quality of lighting which leads to increased sales
- Last 3-10 times longer than regular bulbs, eliminating the hassle of buying and changing bulbs
- Reduce energy expenses, making the business financially stronger

What is this rebate, and how does it work? The California Public Utility Commission requires ratepayers to pay into a fee that goes to the public purpose program on every monthly bill. These funds are earmarked for distribution to small businesses like those in San Francisco for the purpose of energy efficiency. Contractors such as New Light Energy Design are necessary to facilitate the program on behalf of the businesses, thus eliminating the hassle a business would have to go through on their own. The partnership between San Francisco Energy Watch, PG&E and the City of San Francisco administrates the offering of these rebates.
New Light Energy Design is a preferred SFEW contractor who can offer SBDI rebates in San Francisco which means small businesses now have opportunities similar to large businesses to improve their lighting, increase their sales, decrease expenses, reduce the hassle of burned out bulbs, and climbing on ladders. With LED's, business owners can now put those precious resources on managing and growing their business.
