LED Lighting

Make the switch to LED lighting in your facility with Lidlum and Ephesus. LED lighting can match or improve the lighting and brightness in your facility for a fraction of the energy cost of traditional lighting, and many states and local governments offer tax rebates and incentives for energy-efficient lighting. USIndoor's LED lighting providers have installed lights in big and small buildings, from professional stadiums and arenas to recreational sports facilities. Contact Lidlum's Jacques Legault (514-312-3826, or Ephesus’ Tony Saraceni (315-579-2873, to ask questions and make the switch to LEDs.

Pros and Cons of Buying vs. Leasing Commercial Property
By Dale Willerton and Jeff Grandfield
The most common reason tenants lease space instead of buying a location is because 95 percent of all commercial, retail and office space is not for sale. If you are in an enviable position to purchase property, there are several opportunities available to you: a business condo where you occupy the one unit, a strata title unit, small strip plazas or centers where you're now a landlord to other tenants as well, or standalone buildings on a small parcel of land.
