Lighting is the magic in our day. And good lighting defines how we live. For the last 31 years we’ve been on the cutting edge of lighting and electrical supplies. At Revco we pride ourselves in knowing what is needed to complete a project big or small.
We have always had a reputation of servicing customers with hard to find items. No matter what the item is, Revco will find it if there are any still in existence. This caring business ethic, along with a high level of professionalism throughout our staff has solidified relationships with customers that have spanned four generations.
Please make us your one stop for all your electrical and lighting needs. One visit to our showrooms will convince you that Revco’s extensive inventory and experienced staff can supply you with the lighting fixtures of your dreams. From beginning to end, Revco will be with you until that light is on and we can see your smile.
On the roof of the Revco Lighting and Electrical Supply building on County Road 39, hidden from the constant bustle of traffic, lie 220 solar panels. And just feet below, the company has installed an electric car charging station steps from its front doors.
Going all out to promote and become a part of the “green revolution,” Revco has launched a Clean Energy Division at its Southampton location and will throw a party on Friday to cel- ebrate.
“We’re really happy to be on the forefront of the clean energy trend,” said Allison Bourquin, the company’s marketing and public relations coordinator. “Our management has been 100-percent behind this. It’s the wave of the future.”
In addition to their assortment of electrical supplies and lighting, solar photovoltaic and wind energy systems, as well as LED lighting, are now a part of Revco’s inventory. “There’s been an increase in demand on all fronts,” Ms. Bourquin said.
Especially in the smaller items like lighting controls, dimming switches and sensors, according to Clean Energy Specialist Adam Williams. “Occupancy sensors are the new cutting edge on energy efficiency,” he said.
“And installing LED lighting is such a simple adjustment that has an immediate impact on utility expense,” Ms. Bourquin added.
But for those who want to take bigger steps toward energy efficiency, Revco has joined the ranks of solar and wind energy distributors on the East End. The company now carries Solar World USA, Urban Green Energy and Honeywell products, and has been working with each manufacturer to educate its staff about the technical aspects of the new equipment, as well as the environmental benefits that go along with using energy efficient systems.
To get firsthand knowledge, Revco installed a Solar World USA solar system on top of its building, which generates 50,000 watts, and a Leviton Level II charging station for electric vehicles, one of the first public charging stations on the East End, according to Ms. Bourquin.
“The solar panel system is enough to reduce our utility costs by 45 percent-that’s pretty big,” Mr. Williams said. The new system is grid-tied, meaning that it relies on LIPA to store the solar energy and keep track of the kilowatts used.
Now, when customers visit the store, Revco staff, namely Mr. Williams, will walk them through the process of setting up a solar photovoltaic or wind energy system, using the new solar system on the roof as an example. “It will be easier to show and teach people about it knowing firsthand how to install it, and live with it, and how it affects things and what environmental factors to take into account,” he said. “We’re trying to reduce our carbon footprint and to do the right thing.”
Revco’s mission is to satisfy our customers, courteously.
