I believe that if we can get insurance companies to offer deductions on property insurance premiums for properties that have outdoor lighting it would help incentivize home owners to add landscape lighting. This is done for security systems and I believe there may be a possibility it could be done for outdoor lighting and landscape lighting. There is documented reduction in crime and trip and fall accidents, as well as increased security for properties that are have outdoor lighting. A reduction in claims = lower premiums. Offering a homeowners insurance deduction for landscape lighting would be an added benefit for all contractors and manufacturers and is something we can possibly stand united behind as an industry. I would like to investigate putting together an industry task force to get this done. I believe it would be lead by manufacturers and supported by all those in the industry. If you are a manufacturer, association, or contractor who is interested in having this effort go forward please message me. At VOLT we are beginning to explore what it will take to lobby the insurance industry and any relevant information to aid our effort would be welcomed.
