GEM Energy’s Evaluation

Even after working with Austep Lighting for several years, it is still impressive to see the difference in energy usage that their professional designs bring. If you are looking to save money and make your home or business more energy efficient, upgrading your lighting to modern LEDs just has to be part of the equation. On top of that, Austep always strive to come up with sustainable options for recycling and re-using old products. Great company!

The LED lights install went well and the guys doing the install were great to work with. I have no hesitation in recommending them or you to others who are looking at installing LEDs.
