The overtaking of LEDs have conquered many frontiers – retail displays, refrigerator lighting, office lighting, fluorescent tube replacement, spotlights, wall washers and many others. Government guidelines and the availability of stimulus funds have helped, but the biggest boost has come from enlightened customers who have understood the need to cut energy use and reduce carbon dioxide and mercury emissions.
Gone are the days when energy efficient lights were seen as an avoidable expense. More and more corporations, warehouse managers, municipalities and individuals are realizing that energy efficiency measures are a prudent and compulsory investment for sustaining not just their future performance but also necessary in reducing carbon emissions for the planet and its citizens. After all, it is difficult to argue against high quality lighting products that come with over 80 % cost savings, a decade or more of service life and payback periods as short as a year.
High quality LED lights - UL and ETL Listed - DLC Listed
MyLEDLightingGuide has a range of products manufactured to exacting standard. We offer produces made here in the USA and overseas at some of the best factories. We have personally visited all the factories numerous times. We watch how the lights are built, and as important, how the lights are tested. This is important. When you spend time in the best factories, you understand when you visit a factory how they compare just by the way they produce their product. Every product that we sell is either UL or ETL Listed. CE is not good enough. It is not a USA recognized standard. Some of the overseas manufacturers believe 'CE' stands for 'China Export'. That's not a safety standard.
LED High Mast Light Metrics
MyLEDLightingGuide has a complete range of High Mast LED Products for use in a wide range of applications - Sports Parks, Ball Parks, Stadiums, Container Ports, Airports, Highways and DOT roadways or Track and Field Facilities that make for a compelling economic choice.
* Assuming 100 lights used for an average of 12 hours per day and electricity charges of $ 0.10 per kWh.
While the energy savings are significant, the maintenance and replacement hassles pack a real punch. MyLEDLightingGuide LED high mast lights and retrofit kits last an unbelievable 50,000 + hours. This long life is made possible by a combination of high quality LEDs, LED smart driver, and an efficient cooling solution that limits the temperature of the LEDs to ensure a long hassle free service life.
What about Payback?
Payback is a relatively simple calculation that really involves 4 main components:
1. How much do the fixtures cost?
2. The cost of installation and possible disposal of the old fixtures
3. The amount of rebate you can expect back.
4. The cost of electricity, the hours of use and the difference in the previous energy used compared to the new energy consumed.
Rebates are the domain of the utility company you pay your bill electricity to. And it varies from supplier to supplier but here are some general information that is somewhat consistent (but not always)
- Utility companies prefer DLC Listed product and Energy Star Rated produces
- they usually have a prescriptive calculation as well as a custom calculation process
- typically, the more you save, the better the rebate. That is why you should look for DLC Premium Qualified Products
- You should expect to see a 75% savings when converting from Metal Halide to LED
- Paybacks have gotten relatively short.
So how do you calculate payback? Well, we actually have spreadsheets that are set up to do this. We actually work with the utility companies to figure out the rebate amounts as well as the rebate processes so that you know going in what the costs are and what the rebate checks back to you will be. And we outline the steps you need to do to make sure at the end of the project there is money coming back to you.

We've got the LED Horsepower
We have been in the LED business since 2008, so we've been around to see the advancements and watched the technology improve. Our retrofit kits now run up to 150 lumens/watt and are available from 30 to 350W. Our LED High Masts are available from 300 to 900W. That's 900 watts producing over 100,000 of directed LED output. All coming from ISO9001 certified factories. Our high mast lights have been installed at US Government facilities, in cities, and at airports, as well as many baseball and soccer fields.
