About the project
New construction or upgrade
LED Lighting Supply was approached by Healthy Living Technology to upgrade a few of their fixtures to energy-efficient LED parking lot fixtures. The metal halide fixtures caused inefficient energy use and a significant increase in energy costs. By switching some of their fixtures over to LED lighting, we were able to provide them with a smarter, money-saving upgrade. Doing so created a brighter space and a 78% increase in energy savings, as well as a 29.5 year increase in life expectancy.
Our approach and lighting plan
Once Healthy Living Technology reached out to us to replace some of their fixtures, we began getting the information to get the lighting plan started and to choose the best fixture. They let us know the type of fixtures they had and the number of fixtures we were replacing. They had 400 Watt Metal Halide fixtures and, with all of this information in mind, we chose the MLLG-LED-SBHO2-100-50
After speaking with Healthy Living Technology and collecting the information needed, we were able to provide them with a lighting plan. The lighting plan is able to provide visual information and can show how the lights will work once they replace the metal halide fixtures.
The upgrade from metal halides to LEDs not only increased energy savings by 78% for this parking lot, it also increased life expectancy by up to 29.5 years. In conclusion, LED fixtures are a cost-effective upgrade due to the fact they produce more lumens per watt and this causes a 78% decrease in energy consumption for similar if not better lighting.
