Parking Lot Lighting (although a critical component of your property layout) is often overlooked. We’ve put together a list of reasons of why you, as a Property Owner or Manager should take a serious look at upgrading your Parking Lot Lighting.
Parking Lot Safety:
According to the Bureau of Justice Standards; “More than 1 in 10 property crimes occurred in parking lots or garages”. From the time that employees or customers first arrive at your location in the morning, or at night, they should be greeted with a well-lit (and safe) parking environment. Upgrading your existing Parking Lot Lighting will provide a bright environment where your employees and customers can feel safe and secure, as they enter or leave your property.
Security / Theft:
As a Property Manager or Owner, safety and theft prevention should be one of your top priorities. Effective Parking Lot lighting has been proven to lower the rate of theft, vehicle break ins, vehicle theft, burglaries and even robberies. The Bureau of Justice Statistics recorded 110,000 property crimes in commercial parking lots. Energy Electric’s expert Electrical Teams have years of experience planning, designing and installing effective Parking Lot Lighting systems.
According to the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (Energy.gov); “Lighting U.S. parking lots and garages costs building owners more than $6 billion every year and accounts for nearly 1% of all energy used in the country. Building owners could reduce energy use and save money if these structures were upgraded to the most efficient lighting solutions, which can last 2-5 times longer than traditional outdoor lights… These systems pay for themselves quickly by cutting energy costs up to 70% and maintenance costs up to 90%.”
You read that right! An optimized, energy efficient Parking Lot Lighting system can cut up to 70% of your energy costs and your maintenance costs by up to 90%!
