Parking Lot Lighting Solutions
We all encounter parking lot lighting do a daily basis. This lighting is of great use in office complexes, shopping centers distribution centers and warehouses as well as the school districts across the country. What we are talking about here is the pole lighting in the outdoors as well as the light systems on the indoors.
Now the management of these light systems involves dealing with various issues pertaining to energy conservation and costs. The reason behind that is most of the parking lot lighting systems feature HID or high-density discharge lamps like high-pressure sodium or metal halide lamps. If the light system is very old then they will have mercury vapor lamps. Using these technologies to generate the required lumens can cause a few problems. These include,
For any site that is a retail facility, a hospital or a school, energy conservation is a massive cost driver. The regular HID lamp wattage required for parking lot fixtures ranges between 100W and 1000W. Of course, if the wattage is high the output is going to be high and the light on your area will be more. But high wattage also means high energy consumption.
The size of the area that a lighting system covers also plays its part here. The height of the pole also contributes to this matter. For instance, a 1000W lamp or fixture can cost up to $525 annually. Now if you have a large area to cover then using more of the 1000W lamps are going to drive cost very high. This situation not only spikes the energy consumption but the costs as well.
These costs also majorly contribute to the overall costs associated with parking lot lighting. Whether indoor or outdoor, these lights are mounted on poles or ceilings at a height that is more than 15 feet. This means that you will need a bucket truck if you need to change the lamps whenever you need to. There are not many firms that own such a truck.
For this, they need to hire an external service provider to do all the routine maintenance. Over time, these expenses can add up and the management has to deal with thousands of dollars in costs to maintain a single fixture over a period of three years. So the stakes become higher and higher with the passage of time.
Light performance issues
The performance issues of these lights are the most critical element of all. Based on which type of light fixture you are using, the performance traits can vary widely. For instance, if you are using fixtures with metal halide then the light is going to be brighter but these fixtures also accelerate lumen degradation over time.
This means that the light output is going to decrease very quickly from the time of installation and this can reduce the overall durability and lifespan up to a great extent. On the other hand, high-pressure sodium lights are going to produce less lumen and they will not burn out as quickly as the metal halide fixtures. But these lights have very low rendering index with their orange output.
Plus, you will also have to need more of these high-pressure sodium lights because they have less lumen. So in both scenarios, the cost is high and you have to either go for low light output or less durability. LED lights, however, do come with a hefty price but they also tackle both the above-mentioned issues effectively.
In recent time, the government has emphasized more and more on energy conservation and for this reason, they are introducing new terms and conditions for the site owners to comply. Understanding and implementation of these rules and regulations mentioned in the Chicago Building Code and the National Electric Code are mandatory.
Avoiding the code can result in charges and penalties which can further add to the costs. Not many site owners have a complete know-how of all these legal requirements and they go about their projects reluctantly which can subject to penalties for violation.
