  • Emily McDaniel Account Manager, Holt Energy

    Emily's early interest in energy conservation practices led to the eventual need for a dedicated resource team within Holt Electrical Supplies. She realized how many buildings are operating with 40+ year old fixtures. These traditional lights have been analyzed and proven to create depressing atmospheres, eye strains and much higher operating expenses than their current-day counterparts. With this knowledge, Emily spearheaded an initiative to improve efficiency and comfort specifically for industrial and commercial facilities.

    Emily is conscientious of providing lighting solutions that are precision engineered for your business and budget needs. She knows the ins and outs of the manufacturers, old to new technology and the programs available to business owners to further reduce out of pocket expenses.

    Expertise: Schools, hospitals, salons, parking structures and multi-unit properties.
