      "The increase in illumination really showcases our fleet & accentuates our hangars & offices. Passengers comment on how clean and neat the facilities are, & our mechanics
      remark on the increased visibility while maintaining our aircraft. Aesthetics aside after EnergyWare’s LED installation we were also able to reduce our overall lighting spend by 75%, creating a cash neutral implementation, just as proposed."
