Stop wasting money on old lighting
Commercial and industrial facilities across the country are pouring money down the drain using antiquated lighting systems. Fluorescents, metal halide and high-pressure sodium all incur high monthly costs from powering to maintenance. Everyone knows they need to upgrade to high efficiency, intelligent lighting, but the capital outlay for large facilities can be prohibitive.
That’s where we come in.
Subscription lighting makes upgrading easy
We remove the barriers stopping businesses from upgrading their expensive metal halide, fluorescent or high pressure sodium lighting. Our lighting subscription service moves lighting off of your books and onto ours.
We make things simple: We handle maintenance, replacement and upgrades. It’s all included with a subscription price that is guaranteed to be lower than what your current lighting costs. EverWatt subscriptions complete after a period of 4-5 years.
After that, the lights — and savings — are yours to keep.

We handle everything
EverWatt subscriptions are pretty simple. You don’t have to manage a messy project or chase any electricians around. Planning, installation, waste disposal, recycling, maintenance and replacement — all of that is included in your subscription, with no hidden upfront costs, and guaranteed to save you money.
1. Gather Lighting Information
Finding out if your facility qualifies for our subscription lighting only takes a couple minutes.
2. Free savings analysis
If your facility qualifies for a subscription, we create a custom detailed analysis of your property. If you don’t save, you don’t pay.
3. Professional installation
After subscribing, we handle every part of the installation, including recycling of your old bulbs! All performed by professionally licensed & insured members of our nationwide network.
4. We take care of maintenance
During your subscription, we’ll monitor the health of your lighting and replace malfunctioning bulbs.
5. We guarantee our work
Our bulbs have a best in class factory warrantee and your subscription is guaranteed to save you money.
Here’s a Great Example of why Lighting as a Service is Better…
So, here’s a customer who chose to go with another brand of light and contractor because it was about 2% cheaper. Not even two years later, boom, water intrusion and corrosion in almost all fixtures.
If this customer had Lighting as a Service, EverWatt would have maintained those fixtures at no costs to the customer (although, perhaps more importantly, our lights wouldn’t have any corrosion or water intrusion).
In short, it’s penny-wise-pound-foolish to save a few thousand and have 70% of your fixtures go out for what must be at least $80,000 in damage.

Our subscription lighting helps drive down costs for Highland Hospital
Highland Hospital reached out looking to save money and reduce maintenance overhead and we were happy to help. Over the course of several site visits, our lighting technicians built a comprehensive upgrade plan for the facility’s thousands of lights.
Highland loved the plan. The project would end up saving them hundreds of thousands of dollars annually. It also reduces maintenance overhead by replacing old bulbs. EverWatt’s bulbs are built to last 25+ years, and if they go out, the intelligent mesh system lets us know and we send someone out to replace it.
Over the course of several months, our team of licensed contractors worked to upgrade each wing, and in the months after completing the upgrade, worked to monitor the electricity savings to ensure that Highland was getting the best deal possible with the least amount of headache.
In the end, Highland Hospital is saving 1.1 Million kWh (that’s enough to power 10 homes) and $200,000+ a year.
Now Highland can use those resources on things that are really important — like caring for their patients.

Plenty of companies offer warranties, but when you are forced to read the fine print you find out where you really stand. With us, you get replacement lights in days, not months.

Frequently Asked Questions
In a way, yes, it’s a lease. We take the ownership of the lights off your books, and give you a monthly expense.
You must be a business or a federal, state, county or local government agency (see below).
You must pay the electricity bill for your business (although if this is not the case there are still options if you have a good relationship with the owner of the building).
You must have had an active account with your utility for over one year.
Your business must be in good standing with the utility as well as from a business credit perspective.
The project must generate a net immediate savings for you (see below).
We must have an active preferred contractor in your area or be able to approve your current contractor for our installation network.
Very likely. A customer may choose to work with any contractor of their choice that meets our qualifications (most do) in order to install qualifying EverWatt fixtures. Your EverWatt account representative will walk you through this process. If you do not have a contractor you normally use for your business, no problem, we’ll provide one from our preferred network of local contractors.
I AM a contractor. How do sign up to be able to offer this to my customers?
That’s easy, we’re always looking for preferred partners around the country. Simply call or email us at the number/email at the top of the website and approval is a very simple and painless process. We can also help you with project ROI analysis and proposal generation for your clients.
In most cases, the answer is yes. If you have someone who does electrical work for you that you know and trust, assuming they meet our requirements, then yes. No problem
If the final scope of the project differs from the scope detailed in the original agreement or quote, a “Lighting as a service modification agreement” may be required. For projects where the final quote amount changes by less than the allowed amount and there is no change to the agreement term, a loan modification may be requested, but may not be required. When necessary, the lighting as a service team will contact the customer to notify them of any changes. The modification agreement must be signed by an authorized representative of the customer, who is authorized to undertake a financial obligation on behalf of their business.
There are zero installation costs whatsoever for EverWatt lighting as a service agreements, EverWatt finances the retrofit of your lights and installs them through a partnered contractor. The business then pays a monthly fee that is guaranteed to be less than the monthly savings of the project for a period of four years, so you are guaranteed to save money and never make a capital outlay. Plus, after the agreement term ends, your savings continue while the payment does not. We also monitor, maintain, and service the lights, in the rare case that one happens to go out. The savings are determined by the project cost (labor, light selection, available rebates, etc .) as well as the potential savings (current electricity costs and reduction made by the replacement). To qualify for lighting as a service, a project’s estimated energy savings must be sufficient to pay for the fees during the four year agreement term. Savings will vary from project to project, from utility to utility, from state to state, etc ., but if you are approved, you are guaranteed to save money every month without ever paying more than you’re saving.
Think of the traditional lighting contracting where you pay a lump sum as Yellow Cab, and think our lighting as a service as EverWatt’s lighting as a service as Uber. It’s just a better product, but it’s new. By lighting as a service, we mean that EverWatt installs the lights for free, and you pay nothing until your first lower power bill. Then for four years, EverWatt warranties, maintains, services, and takes care of everything concerning your new LED lights, and you pay us a fraction of the savings off your power bill.
In short: save money immediately, pay nothing upfront, and never have a negative capital outlay. You don’t have to budget for this, instead you get to decide what to do with the newfound extra money in your monthly budget.
It’s perfect for any business that wants better lighting and to save some money each month, but would rather not fund such a project out of their budget.
As an additional bonus, EverWatt is the manufacturer. This is a big part of why we can offer such a service. Offering direct to your business, with no distributors, supply stores, regional reps, etc, marking it up along the way, we can both keep the costs such that you save money immediately, as well.
