“Recently the Connetquot CSD engaged in a capital project that involved the replacement of well over 100 classroom ceilings with the initial plans of reusing older T8 light fixtures. Unfortunately the entire project ground to a halt when it was learned that the old fixtures could not be reused due to their design. At that point well over 50 classrooms, containing close to 500 fixtures were already demoed. Finding a supplier for that number of fixtures proved to be hopeless as quantities or cost quickly limited the district’s options.
What appeared to be an insurmountable hurdle was quickly tackled when the district was put in touch with Jay Ryan from Kilfinane Energy Partners. Not only was Jay able to locate the quantity of fixtures needed, the fixture he located exceeded expectations, and was more cost effective than imaginable after the rebate was applied, which Jay personally applied for on behalf of the district.
Additionally, the turnaround from ordering to delivery was nothing short of miraculous as a total of 585 fixtures were delivered to multiple locations throughout the district within 48 hours of the order being placed.
While I look forward to turning the page on this project I do have an eye towards the future and being able to continue the lighting replacement project with Jay Ryan and Kilfinane. At times trying to get things accomplished quickly in a school district seems to be impossible, but with the help of professionals like Jay the impossible became reality.”

"This summer, Kilfinane Energy Consultants installed LED lighting in the office building that I own here on Long Island. The quality and the aesthetic appeal of the lighting is great. My tenants love it. We have a floor of offices below ground level, and many have commented that the new light feels like daylight. Outside, our parking lot is now much brighter and safer. During the planning and installation process, when issues arose, Kilfinane dealt with them immediately and resolved them to my satisfaction."

"Our business includes four different construction companies run out of a large facility in the Hauppauge Industrial Park. We recently upgraded the lights in our offices and our warehouse to LED in order to cut costs and improve the bottom line. Kilfinane Energy Consultants managed the project from start to finish with attention to detail. They were patient as we worked to find the right fixtures and installation went off without a hitch. The lights look great and the occupancy sensors in the warehouse work like a charm. After the job was finished, Kilfinane introduced us to an outside expert in order to save us money on this project, and to help us make more money on future construction projects. They truly act as consultants and provided us with solutions beyond the LED lights.”
