This weekend, many of us will be climbing ladders, scaling our roofs, and wrapping the inside and outside of our house with holiday lighting. Whether you prefer a few strands hung on the shrubs in the front of your house or a display straight out of Christmas Vacation, in the back of your head, there's always that question – "How much is this going to cost me?"

In the retail industry, high quality lighting is one area that can go overlooked or deemed superfluous. Glenn Trunley of TUMI knows the importance of high quality lighting and the benefit that it can bring to accomplishing store design goals.
Regency recently partnered with TUMI to bring specification consistency, standout design, and tailored budgetary solutions for an international rollout.
A few weeks ago, we touched on the topic of service and how Regency's values improve and drive our service. One of Regency's RISE values that doesn’t get as much time in the limelight is expertise. It may seem self-serving to talk about expertise, but it directly impacts our customers and it's an important piece of our culture.
We believe in investing in our people, technology, and training to create experts who are capable of meeting and exceeding your expectations.

If you haven't heard the latest buzz about street lighting, don't worry. The Lighting Insights Blog is here for you.
Earlier this month, The American Medical Association (AMA) adopted guidelines for communities to follow on selecting LED lighting options. The AMA stated that some solid-state lighting in street lamps can have harmful effects.
High-density LED lighting can emit a blue-rich light that creates a worse nighttime glare than those produced by conventional lighting technologies.
This blue-rich light appears white to the naked eye causing the glare and reduced visibility causing a safety hazard.
These white LEDs also have an effect on disrupting our circadian sleep rhythm by more than five times compared to traditional lighting. This disruption to your sleep can reach much farther than you'd think.
