"I had expected the incentive might amount to 20 or 30% of our capital cost. I was delighted when it turned out to be 50%."
- Lee Whitwell, Controller Gibson Building Supplies

Gibson got the sticker shock of a lifetime when the company moved into a new warehouse. “The warehouse had been wired to keep the lights on all day long, and as a result, our first electricity bill was almost $10,000,” says Controller Lee Whitwell. “That was the reality check we needed to start reining in our electricity costs. We looked into the Retrofit Program, did the math and never looked back.”
