Lighting is essential in any construction or renovation project. Indeed, a deficient lighting will make the most successful project lose value which is very significant. In addition, there is the safety aspect. During a project, whether it is agricultural, commercial, industrial, institutional, public or residential, it is absolutely necessary that the lighting be at the right level and that it be safe to avoid accidents, discomfort, headaches and all sorts of other problems. While safety and enhancement are important, there is also the economic aspect. Indeed, implementing a quality lighting solution for your buildings will generate important economic benefits for your company, regardless of your sector of activity.
The underestimated economic impact of lighting on agricultural production
In the agricultural sector, among others, lighting has a very special importance. On a dairy farm, for example, if the light levels are too low or too high, the cows will not produce as much milk as they would. This impact is not only significant for the cows, but also for other animals and plants! Indeed, the development of plants is also greatly influenced by their exposure to light. Depending on the type of horticulture, plants need to be exposed to a certain amount of light and darkness during the day in order to develop properly.
The importance of lighting in the agricultural field is explained by the circadian rhythm, an internal clock in both animals and plants that regulates physiological functions according to the time of day. With lighting, it is possible to synchronize the circadian rhythm to optimize the production of animals and plants.
Enhance your business with a quality lighting
In the retail industry, it has been proven that proper lighting increases sales. Indeed, in this type of business, lighting is widely used to highlight the products on sale and the facilities. This lighting strategy is also widely used by restaurants to make their food more appealing.
Moreover, it is also with the lighting that it is possible to direct the eyes of the customers towards the strategic places. For example, during a promotion, we want the products on sale to be immediately visualized by the customers, when they enter the store, or pass in front of it. To do this, it is possible to direct spotlights on rails directly on these products in order to highlight them and encourage customers to buy them.
Create the perfect atmosphere to stimulate your customers
There are standards that dictate the level of lighting required by type of business, in terms of lux, but the lighting needs vary significantly depending on the type of business. For example, the lighting of these will depend among other things on the atmosphere we want to create in our spaces.
Often, in more upscale businesses, such as a fancy restaurant or jacket store, the lighting needs to be a little more subdued to provide visual comfort, so people feel comfortable. Here, the goal would be to create a relaxed atmosphere with warm color temperatures that will calm customers and make them stay longer in the store. For, this type of business, the fact that customers spend more time in the store will make them consume more.
The opposite is also true for businesses that have a more quantity-oriented business model. For this type of store, the use of cold white is perfect, because this color gives energy to the consumers which will increase sales while ensuring that they do not stay too long to monopolize the employees and clog the space. It is important to avoid this type of situation for this type of store, so as not to negatively affect the customer experience.
Significant savings for the industrial sector
For companies in the industrial sector whose facilities consist of warehouses and factories. The economic benefit will come mainly from the eco-efficiency of the lighting and the improvement of the safety for the employees.
Indeed, most industrial companies have large buildings that require a significant amount of lighting to illuminate their interior and exterior operations. That being said, it is certain that lighting represents a significant expense for these businesses. A LED lighting solution that efficiently redirects light streams could save them up to 80% on their lighting power consumption.
In addition, occupational health and safety is also an important issue for these companies. With a quality lighting solution that is not dazzling and that highlights the operations and movements of workers, you will promote a safe and comfortable work environment for employees. In this way, you will save significant amounts of money related to employee turnover and work-related accidents.

Depending on your sector of activity, the benefits of optimal lighting will be numerous for your company. Beyond the economic factor, lighting also makes your facilities shine.
