At GreenBee Energy Efficiency, we provide LED lighting upgrades for parking lots in the Chicagoland area and beyond. We have worked with many different types of companies including gas stations, grocery stores, hotels, and car dealerships. Car dealerships especially need lighting systems that are energy efficient, long-lasting, and well-designed since their parking lot is also their showroom.
Why Choose LED Lighting For Parking Lots?
Most business owners have recognized the advantages of LED lighting fixtures when compared to traditional forms of lighting. But, why are industrial outdoor LED lighting fixtures especially useful for parking lots?
- Energy Efficiency & Cost Savings – Lighting in parking lots must efficiently light the space when it is completely dark outside. For this reason, lighting must be extremely powerful and therefore, it will require a great deal of energy. Using LEDs as opposed to other traditional forms of lighting will result in a 40%-60% reduction in energy consumption, resulting in substantial cost savings. Also, photocells can be installed so that lights come on at dusk and go off in the morning, resulting in optimal efficiency.
- Maintenance – Switching to LEDs to generate light for your parking lot lowers maintenance costs as well. Due to the way LEDs generate light, their functional life is much different than HIDs or fluorescent lights. LEDs degrade very slowly over time rather than ceasing to function once a fuel source is reduced.
- Performance – The performance of your parking and outdoor area lighting is crucial to ensure that customers and employees feel safe and can easily see. LED light levels across a given surface rather than just underneath the fixture.
