Energy Efficient Lighting Distributor

We deliver the value in energy-efficient lighting

Monterey Lighting Solutions was founded in 2006 as a specialized distributor of energy efficient lighting solutions. Our initial focus was to help organizations lower the cost of their energy bills by adopting energy efficient lighting products. Our early customers were large and small commercial accounts, specialized retrofit contractors and utility companies. Due to our focus of always looking out for the customer’s best interest and staying at the forefront of change within our industry, Monterey Lighting Solutions quickly became a well respected competitor in our market. As our business grew, our clients sought our assistance in other aspects of lighting. In turn, we expanded our business into the design build / new construction side of the business. We also began servicing the replacement lamp needs of our customers.

Today, Monterey Lighting Solutions is a full service distributor of commercial lighting products, representing hundreds of manufacturers and serving a diverse set of customers. Our customers are a cross section of large property managers / owners, design build contractors, retrofit contractors, utility companies, architects, engineers and lighting designers. Monterey constantly focuses on looking out for our customers’ best interest. Our objective is to serve as an advocate and trusted advisor for each of our clients, ensuring we deliver the best value available in the market.
