LED Bay Lighting Fixture Upgrade

led-bay-lightingLED technology is a valuable solution for helping owners and managers bring facilities up to more energy efficient standards. This technology is an effective alternative to Metal Halide, High Pressure Sodium, Bay Fluorescent and other traditional-style HID lighting types. Because of this, LED has become a trend for companies looking for new solutions to cutting various overhead costs.

One of the efficiency standards provided by LED fixtures include increased longevity expectancy over that of fluorescent lighting and HID. Maintaining these fixtures is also more expensive than the maintenance costs of LED fixtures.

LED lighting is up to 60% more cost efficient when compared to traditional lighting sources. Some of the other appealing attributes of LED technology include:

  • Has both the ability to be turned off and on whenever and as often as needed, and the ability to start instantly. This helps to save on energy costs, with decreasing the life of the fixtures. Both qualities make LED fixtures very effective for pairing with daylight harvesting and occupancy sensors to increase energy savings. Automated controllers improves efficiency by an estimated average of 40%. Rocky Mountain Power provides incentives for installing these sensors, adding even more to the overall savings.
  • Light is produced constantly and consistently from the moment of installation throughout the fixture’s lifetime. In comparison to HID fixtures, LED types only lose 10-15% of their light intensity over the fixture’s lifetime (100,000 hours). HID types lose up 40% of the intensity of light within just the first year of life of a new lamp. This increases to about 50% over that same lamp’s lifetime (20,000 hours). Yet, throughout that life, it will still consume the same amount of energy.
