Jennifer Pytleski is saving business owners money on their energy bills and making employees more productive… and all it takes is the right lighting.
Jennifer graduated with a degree in interior design. It wasn’t until she started filling out circuit loads and realized how much electrical wattage she was using in her designs that she even thought about energy efficiency. She got certified by the National Council on Qualifications for the Lighting Professions (NCQLP) and joined Minnesota-based Werner Electric. Now she works with architects on retrofits and new construction projects, analyzing floorplans and making recommendations on what fixtures and light levels will result in the most efficient and productive commercial spaces.
According to Jennifer, half of her clients are looking to reduce their energy and maintenance costs and half are just looking to upgrade their current lighting. The good news is they can do both. “It’s not just investing in the environment,” said Jennifer of installing more efficient lighting. “It’s an investment back into your pocketbook.”
