Operating Budget

If you still have T12 lamps existing and you don't have enough funds to do an entire building retrofit, you may consider retrofitting to T5 adapters on a monthly or quarterly basis.  You are already spending money out of your operating budget on ballasts and lamps, don't keep putting up old technology and not saving energy.  T12 ballasts and lamps are getting more and more expensive and the availability will be diminishing since they are no longer being manufactured.  Remember, you will be saving on lighting energy costs each month on your electric bill.  Write a smaller check to the utility companies as you retrofit, you keep that part of the savings in your operating account.
