Induction Shoe Box Type Fixture Upgrade

inductinoshoeboxInduction fixtures are extremely cost effective when it comes to longevity, energy savings and light output. This solution is a leading technology in the lighting industry due to its very high efficiency. Because of this, induction has quickly become a popular solution for upgrades where efficiency is important without having to sacrifice lighting output.

Throughout the lamp’s life, these fixtures maintain up to 85% of their maximum light output. Compare this to a high bay lamp using traditional HID. Within the very first year alone, the lumen produced drops by 40%. This rate continues to decrease by more than 50% throughout the lamp’s lifetime. Yet, it still continues to consume the same amount of electricity from the time of installation until it’s replaced.

When it’s time to make a choice between various types of fixtures, always consider the life expectancy and warranty of fixtures. It’s true to induction-type fixtures are generally more costly upfront. But, they provide substantial savings on maintenance and energy costs. Combine that with the $125.00 per fixture RMP incentives, and this alternative fixture provides excellent saving on facility overhead costs.
