So you have a Metal Halide (or even High Pressure Sodium) light, and you want to convert to LED. You've done your research, you've been inundated with marketing materials that tell you what is the most important thing to consider (coincidentally it probably is something they think is important). And how much money will you save per light after you convert to LED?

Lets do 2 comparisons, converting 400W Metal Halide and 1000W Metal Halide over to LED. We will compare it to lights that will produce high quality light that will give your outdoor parking lot a safe, highly lit environment. We will use 12 hours a day operating time, essentially these lights are only turned on at night.

Scenario 1 - Replace 400W Metal Halide


Each 400W Metal Halide actually consumes around 455W, including the power the ballast consumes. We will use a 120W LED Shoebox Fixture producing 16,800 lumens, backed with a 10 year warranty.
