Fox Valley is an SRP Approved Lighting Alliance Contractor

lightingicon350As an SRP Lighting Alliance Contractor, Fox Valley can work  with both residential and business customers to gain rebates for upgrading outdated lighting.  There are a variety of methods of doing this\

  • When replacing old lighting equipment, evaluate new technologies that may need fewer fixtures and/or fewer lamps within existing fixtures.
  • Ensure that light levels will remain at adequate levels before changing out technologies and/or reducing number of lamps.
  • Where practical, replace incandescent lamps with compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs). Ensure you install compatible dimming technology if CFLs are used along with a dimming system.
  • When fluorescent T-12 lamps burn out, consider retrofitting fixtures with T-8 lamps and changing from magnetic ballast to electronic.
  • Replace incandescent “EXIT” signs with LED signs. LEDs use about one-tenth the wattage and last 50 times longer than incandescent-lamp signs.

Not only are you updating and improving your space, you are saving money on your electric bill.  Interested in saving both money and the environment?  Call Fox Valley Electric for more information!

Fox Valley Electric at the JW Marriot Resort and Spa

494946We think that one of the nicest hotel lobbies in Phoenix can be found at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa.

Built in 2002, the 950-room resort is undergoing a $16 million renovation to its guest rooms and public areas.  As part of the extensive fast-track remodeling being done just a few months before peak tourism season,  the Fox Valley team provided the electrical rework for the tall light columns that are a key feature of the lobby space. Working hand-in-hand with multiple contractors and utilizing off-peak hours for major portions of the work, the Fox Valley Commercial Electrical team brought the project in on-time and on-budget!

Our Commercial Electrical Division can handle fast-track, time definite projects of any size.  Call us to learn more!
