Does your company have a lighted parking lot with High Pressure Sodium or Mercury Vapor bulbs? Retrofit them now with long lasting, highly efficient LED bulbs. Incandescent and even florescent interior lighting also uses more energy than LED lighting. In addition, incandescent and florescent lamps produce lots of heat. This significantly increases air conditioning costs.

According to energy.gov, 49 million LED bulbs were installed in 2012. Energy savings add up to over $675 million a year and hundred of metric tons of carbon emissions. Retrofitting all bulbs to LEDs in the next 20 years will result in $250 billion dollars in energy savings and reduce carbon emissions by 1.8 billion metric tons.
The City of El Paso, in conjunction with El Paso Electric and other organizations, are retrofitting current HPS (High Power Sodium) bulbs and MV (Mercury Vapor) bulbs with energy efficient L.E.D (Light Emitting Diode) bulbs. The current phase concerns 19,000 street lamps. The expected energy and bulb replacement savings is projected to exceed $8 million over a ten year period. Although your company will not have a project of this scope, these numbers should help you realize the significant savings in modernizing parking lot and out door lighting to LED.
