A Source of Projects for Electricians: LED Parking Lot Lights
Presented by LED Corporations
Electricians nationwide are finding significant LED projects in parking lot lights. As typical high intensity discharge (HID) bulbs and fixtures become increasingly inefficient, replacing them with light-emitting diodes (LEDs) is an easy sell to parking lot owners for several reasons.
First, LED lighting dramatically improves appearance and security. Because the color temperature (measured in Kelvins) can be customized, property owners can choose their preference. Typical choices include:
4000K- 5000 kelvin – produces a white light that replicates daylight
6000 kelvin + – provides and intense platinum white as you would find in a museum, with high Kelvin ranges emitting a blue cast.
