At LED Lighting Supply we receive a lot of lighting requests for outdoor spaces; from sports fields to security lighting. However there is a space that’s used as much if not more than sports fields and that is parking lots.


LED Lighting Supply was approached by Healthy Living Technology to upgrade a few of their current fixtures to energy efficient LED Parking Shoebox Lights. Using their current mounting height we were able to replace four of their fixtures.

As a result of our Lighting Specialists and lighting design software, we are able to provide an LED Upgrade to four of Healthy Living Technology’s fixtures. These lights, per fixture, consumed 300 Watts less than 400 metal halide lights (including metal halide ballast draw) and provide better, brighter and more balanced lighting throughout any busy parking lot.

How Much Does Lighting Cost?

Converting to LED may not be as expensive as an online search may show but it can be overwhelming. A quick search can reflect hundreds of options and solutions, even for lighting a parking lot. On the web LED fixtures range anywhere from $200.00 to $1,000.00. Due to this it can be confusing to determine what’s a good quality fixture that’s right for the job. Here at LED Lighting Supply we have lighting specialists to help our customers navigate and choose the correct fixture for your lighting needs.


Lighting a parking lot typically comes with its own set of challenges from the mounting height, to city regulationsPicking the right fixture can be a tough job. When Healthy Living Technology reached out to us, they needed their fixtures to match their current ones as only four needed to This added another layer of challenges as we had to match the color temperature and the lumens to the customers existing fixtures. With this information in mind, our lighting specialist chose the MLLG-LED-SBHO2-100-50 as it was the closest to the customers other fixtures.
