Outdoor and parking lot lighting is a great expense for businesses. Most outdoor lighting in the USA is not energy efficient. The main advantage of LED outdoor lighting is efficiency. Conventional bulbs generate a lot of heat (the filament must be warmed). This is completely wasted energy, unless you’re using the lamp as a heater, because a huge portion of the available electricity isn’t going toward producing light. LED lights generate very little heat. A much higher percentage of the electrical power is going directly to generating the light, which cuts down on the electricity usage. LED lighting helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions from power plants and lowers your electric bills.
There are also concerns with light pollution to the night sky for aircraft safety along with harmful habitat consequences. LED lighting solves these issues while generating a positive cash flow literally one month after install. Retrofits are available to decrease outdoor electric consumption by 70% or more. For the most common fixtures a direct fit replacement lamp has been produced. Your existing fixtures can be used with a simple ballast bypass and lamp install is generally all that is needed. This reduces the upfront cost of converting to LED Lighting.
Direct replacement eliminates a lengthy cost consuming installation. The advantages are tremendous over entire fixture replacement. Bright Idea LED excels at bringing cost saving retrofit solutions to market. Lamp retrofits are available for the most common types of fixtures including but not limited to: Shoebox, Teardrop and most High-Intensity Discharge and High Pressure Sodium lights.
