Why LEDs are ideal for outdoor lighting

LED outdoor lighting improves visibility, saves more energy, lasts longer and qualifies for cash incentives. What’s not to love?

If your business has any sort of exterior lighting — whether it’s in the parking area or on your building — you could easily benefit from switching to LED lighting. Here’s why:

  • Huge energy savings. LED replacements use up to 50 to 70 percent less energy than metal halide or high-pressure sodium lights, and up to 75 percent less energy than incandescent or halogen bulbs.* You can also pair LEDs with lighting controls, such as motion detectors or timers, for even greater savings.
  • Reduced maintenance costs and hassles. You’ll spend a lot less time climbing ladders or using a lift because LEDs last up to four times longer. In fact, you could go up to 20 years without having to change some LEDs.*
  • Better nighttime visibility and safety. LEDs provide truer color — great for a car dealership, for example — and more even light. Your employees and customers will thank you.
  • Cash incentives make it affordable. Energy Trust of Oregon offers cash incentives that reduce your costs and speed up payback.
