D

'visible equipment' is parallel with 'unobtrusive equipment'.
In E, "it" is ambiguous.

Edit: Typo - changed it to D

Go with D

A B and C are not parallel. They have 3 problems. Verb problems, none of these can decide which is their subject equipment/lights and what to use with it. B and C use 'when' unneccessary. B and C use 'it' unneccessary.

E is parallel but 'it' has no referrent. Is it equipment or amount of energy.

D has all problems solved

A) equipment, such as lights, that are visible and must be turned on and off and underestimate that
B. equipment, such as lights, that are visible and must be turned on and off and underestimate it when
C. equipment, such as lights, that is visible and must be turned on and off and underestimate it when

D. visible equipment, such as lights, that must be turned on and off and underestimate that
E. visible equipment, such as lights, that must be turned on and off and underestimate it when
