How Do Government-Imposed Tariffs Affect Outdoor Lighting?

Important Notice About 2019 Price Changes

Rocks and greenery with landscape lighting

As Thanksgiving sneaks up on us and the New Year is right around the corner, we wanted to share with our prospects and clients an impending change in our prices in 2019. New government-imposed tariffs are going in to effect. Our lighting manufacturers had sourced and manufactured enough product to get us through the end of 2018, but in 2019, the new prices on materials will ripple down to us and our 2019 product orders.

We are expecting to see a 25% increase in prices on January 1, 2019. The price change will affect all of our products including copper and brass lights and transformers. Every LED chip is sourced from overseas and the domestically-built products will also be affected due to tariffs on the raw materials.

Transformers are expected to have a higher price increase as they fall into a different product category – we are awaiting the final word on what that cost increase will look like.

As a courtesy to our valued clients and prospects, we wanted to offer you a way to take advantage of 2018 pricing before the change takes effect. We can take a deposit and order your fixtures now, and hold them until your project is scheduled. Whether you decide to get the entire thing done now or schedule us into next year, signing now is the best way to save!

So, if you were thinking about adding a few lights, upgrading to LED, or a new landscape lighting installation in 2019, don’t wait, call today to make plans for big savings on next year’s prices!

Please reach out if you have any questions and thank you for understanding.
