LED lights are changing the landscape for real estate organizations, municipalities, large corporations, educational facilities, and small businesses looking to improve their light quality while simultaneously trying to minimize their energy and maintenance expenses. Here are five common applications where a thorough LED retrofit or conversion will pay you back sooner than you think:
LED Lighting For Parking Lots
Parking lots are a relevant lighting concern for real estate organizations, commercial property managers, government and municipalities, as well as large corporations like hospitals and universities. Major concerns include providing enough light to prevent safety incidences at night, minimizing the relatively fixed costs of operating light fixtures during the evening hours, and, to the extent that it is possible, preventing emerging maintenance costs associated with replacement lights and the labor required to change out failed components. Here is a look at the vastly improved lighting quality at the Kevon One Office Center in Pennsauken, NJ.
Anarticle in Forbes verified what Stouch has been telling sports facility managers for years: you will save a lot of money by switching your lighting to state-of-the-art LED technology. For a long time this was thought to be impossible, but now it seems we’re finally moving past the early adopter phase of the technology adaptation curve. Hundreds of sports teams across the country are retrofitting their stadiums with LED lights. And they’re saving bundles of money by making the switch.

Although only about five percent of the sporting facilities currently operating in the United States are using LED lighting, many are starting to make the switch. Hundreds of sporting arenas and stadiums across the country have already begun retrofitting their facilities with LED lights. And they’re saving money by making this switch.
Here are ten big time stadiums with LED lighting:
NFL: The Minnesota Vikings- U.S. Bank Stadium opened in 2016 with a patented system of LED lighting for large sporting arenas. Games started to be hosted in the new venue for the 2016-2017 season, and the LED lights had an impact from day one. Vikings Owner/President Mark Wilf expressed excitement about the new project “because of the impact it will have on the fans inside U.S. Bank Stadium and those watching on broadcast television.” Super Bowl 52 is already on the schedule to be hosted at the new Vikings stadium.
Student and faculty safety is a priority at every educational facility in the country, and LED lighting can be a big part of a school’s plan to help students and faculty feel more safe. How so? Take a look at the photos below and note the difference. They are “before” and “after” shots from an LED retrofit at Neumann University, located in the outskirts of Philadelphia.
Ever wonder what’s better: High Intensity Discharge (HID) lights or Light Emitting Diodes (led lighting)? Well here’s a head-to-head comparison of the two followed by an in-depth discussion of each technology in turn.
If you’ve spent any time on our blog lately, you know that we’re excited about LED lighting and how it can positively impact different organizations. Three improvements that LEDs can offer to virtually any business or building are the following:
Retrofitting your current lighting with an energy efficient LED solution can save you up to 80% in your annual lighting energy costs. The savings are so significant that you can finance the replacement with the energy cost savings you will realize as a result.
When considering lighting for your real estate project there are a few basic measures you need to be aware of for the lights themselves. Here are the big three:
1. Color Rendering Index (CRI): CRI is a measurement of a light’s ability to reveal the actual color of objects as compared to an ideal light source (natural light). High CRI lights will evidence colors much better than low CRI lights.Read More
