Is energy savings the most important factor when finding a solution for your lighting project? According to a recent poll, a surprising number of business owners have concerns that rival energy savings.

A poll by Leapfrog Lighting asked a randomized sample of 200 business owners and managers, “What is the most important reason you are considering (or have used) LED lighting in your business?” While it was expected that energy savings would continue to be the most important factor at 50.5%, it was surprising to find that 31.4% of respondents identified lighting quality as main reason.

The 31.4% of respondents who selected lighting quality are divided into “consistent quality of lighting” (16.9%), “pleasant environment to work in” (8.4%) and “pleasing retail/gallery displays” (6.1%). These percentages highlight the growing importance of light quality as opposed to energy savings.

Furthermore, only 18.1% of business owners chose “I’m not considering LED lighting,” demonstrating that LED lighting is becoming more mainstream.
