AS many of you know the acceptance of solid state lighting is on the rise.

Across the nation(s) the lighting retrofit market is growing by leaps & bounds.

Prior to the sale of these billions of LED luminaires the "lighting application " will

be examined usually by average folks sometimes that will be custodians, sometimes

building managers or shop owners . Often the lights used in a facility were decided on

decades back with the only thought given to lighting is the current cost of replacement lamps.


 There is out there a great opportunity out there for analytical energy pros to bolster

their list of talents and capabilities by becoming Lighting surveyors and Auditors.

Speaking as one - we have the ability to coach a building owners with a relevant strategy.-

switching lighting tech is something these folks WILL do within the next 2/4 years


There is a growing demand due to the tremendous growth in LED retrofits- ,maybe

some of you guys will want to consider the current "need" within the subset.

I can't speak about the sales of blower doors these days but I did just recently read

about great growth in the sales of premium quality light meters . There's probably

a reason behind that !

There may be less of a job opportunity in light auditing than suggested.  Interior designers are also competing in the field, as well as architectural lighting professionals - licensed architects.  Many architectural firms have been doing this for some time... some specializing only in lighting. 

Lighting and illuminate manufacturing is an area that will never lose demand and with the advancement of technology, a number of different illuminants in attractive designs and fashions are now available. In that, Led's are most selectable source.

A highly educational discussion going on here. Thanks all.
