Ensuring Safety and Efficiency with Upgraded Parking Lot Lighting
About The Project
JCR Retail worked with Lumenant to transform the parking lot at its shopping center in Accokeek, Maryland. Lumenant replaced JCR’s aging 400-watt metal halide ﬁxtures with 160-watt LEDs reducing energy costs by almost 60% and saving over $22,000 per year on electric bills. The new brighter lighting keeps employees and shoppers safe and deters illegal nighttime activities.
The row of lights on the left are the old metal halide fixtures. The row of lights on the right are the new LED fixtures. Compare the tree and ground under the old light (left) and the new light (right) to see the difference in visibility at night.
The above photo also demonstrates the power of LED light in comparison to the old halide lights. Look at the shadow cast from the figure in the center. Shadow from new LED lights (left) and shadow from old halide lights (right).
