Reduced Energy Costs

Switching to energy-efficient LEDs can provide significant cost savings for your business. For example, the Department of Energy replaced 28 high-pressure sodium and metal halide lights with 25 LED luminaries at a T.J. Maxx in New Hampshire. The upgrade resulted in a 58% cost reduction, from $8,096.69 in annual energy costs and $11,000.08 in maintenance costs down to $2,590.77 and $1,250 respectively.

Reduce Maintenance Costs

One of the most expensive parts about conventional parking lot lighting is how often the bulbs need to be replaced. Not only are the bulbs expensive, but swapping out the bulbs also has labor costs associated with it. When you switch to LED lighting constantly changing bulbs will become a thing of the past. LED lights have a longer lifespan than any other light source available today. High-pressure sodium lights last around 24,000 hours, whereas LEDs can last between 50,000 and 100,000 hours. You can save money on energy, maintenance, and replacement costs by switching to LED fixtures.

Fixing Uneven Lighting Coverage

Uneven lighting coverage and incorrect color temperature significantly reduce nighttime visibility for customers, delivery drivers, and employees. By upgrading your parking lot lighting system, you can fix uneven illumination levels, improve visibility, and keep your building well-lit.

Improving Security

A dimly lit parking lot is an easy target for criminals to either rob people walking to and from their cars or break into cars. Upgrading and modernizing your lighting system is a deterrent to criminals, increasing their chances of being seen or caught on camera easily. One study in New York found that increased lighting levels outside of a building reduced crime by as much as 36%.

Common Questions About Our Parking Lot Lighting Services

What Lighting is Best for Parking Lots?

The best light source for parking lots is LEDs, although solar is another popular option. LEDs are long-lasting, energy-efficient, low-maintenance, eco-friendly, and can significantly reduce utility costs.

What Kind of Bulbs Are Used in Parking Lot Lights?

Traditional parking lot lights usually use mercury vapor or metal halide bulbs, though modern properties have switched to the preferred, energy-efficient LEDs. We can help you upgrade to the brighter and more durable solution if you still use the outdated variety.

How Many Lumens Do You Need for Parking Lot Lights?

The number of lumens necessary for outdoor lighting depends on how well-lit you want your parking lot. For example, standard LED lighting head illumination is usually around 20,000 lumens.

What Voltage Are Parking Lot Lights?

The specific voltage of parking lot lights varies based on the type of light, electrical wiring, infrastructure, etc. However, many business owners use 480-volt LED lights for parking lot and roadway lighting.

What is a Foot Candle Measurement, and How Does it Apply to my lighting?

A foot candle is a unit of measurement that quantifies light intensity. A single footcandle is the amount of light or illumination that occurs over a one-square-foot surface from a constant light source.

One foot-candle is equivalent to 10.76 lumens. Our experts can help you determine how many footcandles are necessary to illuminate your parking lot properly. You can learn more about foot candles here.
