26watt florescent converted to 2.87watts of LED. These wall lights had not been touched in over 10 year. They were in need of some love. Cost effective upgrade that cost less than returning to florescent. #upgrade #led #outwiththeoldinwiththenew #slo #805 #mosque #hireacontractor #lovemyjob #electriciansofinstagram #electrical #lighting #walllights special thank you to @pat_...
