Convert your Parking Area to TLEDs and Begin Saving Today

How do you turn a $1,861 investment into a $25,845 savings in one year? Learn the results of one Bay Lighting customer when they converted a parking garage from fluorescent 4′ lamps to TLEDs.

What Are TLEDs?

TLEDs, or Tube Light Emitting Diodes, are energy-efficient and eco-friendly lighting alternatives to traditional fluorescent tubes. They are designed to be direct replacements for fluorescent tubes, and offer several benefits over their traditional counterparts. TLEDs use less energy and last longer than fluorescent tubes, which means they can save you money on your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint. Additionally, TLEDs are free of toxic materials, such as mercury, which makes them safer for both the environment and human health. They are also more durable and resistant to damage than fluorescent tubes, which can help to reduce replacement costs and maintenance time. Overall, TLEDs are a great option for individuals and businesses looking to reduce their energy costs and environmental impact while maintaining high-quality lighting.

What we appreciated most, besides your excellent service and prices, was
the ease of installation and the quick return on investment due to the PEPCO
rebate. We also love the brightness and light consistency in our garage now. Also
since LEDs are not affected by temperature like flourescent we will have a much
brighter garage in the winter months. We estimate payback in 1 ½ months.

Apartment unit turns, or apartment turnover, is the process that happens from the time one tenant moves out until the next tenant moves in. This is an easy, budget-friendly time to consider renovations since there aren’t currently tenants in the unit, and it can make the apartment more appealing to future tenants.
