Minnehaha Academy (Minneapolis, MN)

We had wanted to convert our lighting for years, but had no budget for it. They understood our challenges and were able to offer financing with no up-front costs. They were great to work with, installed in the evening and finished on schedule. We’re saving money every month and our lights work and look great. We highly recommend.
