Church LED Parking Lot Lights

Churches Love Their LED Parking Lot Lights

The main reason is safety. Most churches have early morning or late night services or functions. With that in mind there are a lot of people heading to the church when it is dark. In the past most churches had older metal halide of high pressure sodium parking lot light installed. Over the years these lights while still work proved about 20% of the light they use to and it makes for a very unsafe parking lot area.

New LED Retrofit Lights Or New LED Light Fixtures

The cost to keep a lot full of 400W shoebox lights on is costly for a church. The return on investment to update a church parking lot is usually under two years in most cases. In some of the states we deal with the pay back is even less. In Alaska the cost per KW is about $.18 per Kwh.

Stories Of Church Lighting

In one case the church was growing so much that they were parking people in a grass field. At that point they only had a few lights in the field to help with lighting. They were thinking about buying some lights off the internet and did not think about what kind of optics may be available to light up the field a little better. In a lot of cases if you don’t ask questions you may get lights that work OK but not great. The thing you have to keep in mind is you won’t be replacing these for maybe 10 plus years.

Lights Last 50,000 to 100,000 Hours….Make Sure You Buy What You Need

LED parking lot lights come with a variety of options these days. One in particular is OPTICS. When we sell LED parking lot lights we need to know how many of the lights will be on the perimeter and how many will be in the middle of the lot. We have optics for perimeter lighting that light up the parking lot light not the grass behind the pole. These optics are called Type 3. We have type 5 optics that are more rounded so they belong in the middle of the lot so they light up around the pole not just underneath the pole.

In the case of the field lighting we wanted to make sure they got a type 5 optics on their LED parking lot lights because we could put a Slip Fitter on the light and position it at an angle to throw more light in the field. Without this knowledge they may have bought a light with out the slip fitter and only got lighting under the pole and not in the field.
