  • LED Replacement Tubes Light the Way to Big Lighting-Maintenance Savings

    While LED fixtures are becoming the top choice, versus fluorescent models, in new construction and major renovation efforts, millions of existing fluorescent troffers are still operating in schools and offices across the United States.
