The Benefits of LED Lights in Parking Lots

When you think about it, parking lots are a huge burden on your bottom line. For the sake of safety and security, they need be bright, well-lit areas. How to you make a wide open field of pavement bright and well-lit? You use large HID light fixtures that use up enormous amounts of energy, and therefore cost a lot of money on your electric bill.

The world needs parking lots and the large light fixtures that illuminate them; there’s no way around that. But there is a better way to get the job done.

With LED parking lot lighting fixtures, you can get light output that rivals, or even exceeds, that of their HID counterparts. Okay, so what does that mean? It means you can get effective lighting for parking lots while only using a fraction of the energy you were before. But saving money on the electric bill isn’t the only advantage to LEDs. There are other important LED lighting benefits:

  • Truer whites: An LED fixture can have a higher color rendering index than an HID counterpart, which not only gives you truer white light, it also makes the cars in your parking lot look better, with more accurate colors. (Perfect for car dealerships!) With the advanced technology of LEDs, the wonderful white light won’t gradually fade or change hue over time.
  • Longer life: LED fixtures are rated to last much longer than traditional HID sources, which means you spend less time changing lamps. This results in less manpower and less labor cost.

Making the switch to LED fixtures in your parking lot can quickly save your facility a lot of money. Give us a call and we’ll be happy to run the numbers with you!
