Parking Garage Improvements

Well lighted and safe parking garages are an important part of daily life. In addition to our government mandating a minimal performance for lighting fixtures/bulbs, Bay Lighting offers multiple solutions to help you save on your electric bill and long-term maintenance costs. Here’s a typical example:

  • EXISTING CONDITION: 100w, 150w, and 175w metal halide, requires daily maintenance to keep in working order, provides poor lighting and leaves garages with dark areas, energy hungry, $238/yr to operate
  • BAY LIGHTING SOLUTION #1: high-quality fluorescent, maintenance free for 3 years, well distributed light eliminating dark areas, energy conscious, $63/yr to operate, utility company rebates available!
  • BAY LIGHTING SOLUTION #2: high-quality LED, maintenance free for 12 years, pinpoint light distribution for optimum illumination,energy wise, $43/yr to operate, aggressive utility company rebates available!

In April, the Department of Energy finalized two rules requiring manufactures to sell energy-efficient lightbulbs. This means older, inefficient lightbulbs that don’t meet the new standards can no longer be manufactured and sold. The primary purposes for these rules are to drive down electricity use, save consumers money, and decrease greenhouse gas emissions.

It’s estimated that schools spend billions of dollars annually on energy, and it’s often the second-highest operating expenditure (following personnel costs). Each year, these expenses continue to increase while budgets often decrease, leading educators to look for ways to save money throughout the year. One way is by making some lighting updates that are more energy efficient, therefore saving money on energy bills. LED uses up to 75% less energy than conventional lighting systems, which keeps dollars in your budget for other important things.
