They love the lighting.” Phillips said the residents tell her they “can see a lot more and when the lights come on, the community is well-lit.” Phillips said the community has a lot of people who would like to become residents and the lighting is an attractive amenity. She has gotten comments from people interested in moving into Almond Village and they say “the lighting makes it look really nice at night.” As a manager, she also appreciates the fact that the lights automatically come on so she can rely on a steady level of performance. “It’s awesome,” she said.
Continuing Customer SatisfactionMiami Valley Lighting also provides full service lighting that eliminates the hassle, labor and maintenance costs usually associated with customer-owned lighting systems. The full service provides a single point of contact for all outdoor lighting needs, including design, engineering, installation and maintenance. “Miami Valley Lighting comes out whenever we call,” Phillips said. “When we notice a light is out, they’re on it. It’s fixed the next day.” Miami Valley Lighting has maintenance service level agreements with its customers and typically performs better than the allotted time in the agreement.
