The parking lot lighting for the Commerce Bank in Wichita, Kansas was in need of an energy efficiency overhaul. Improving the lighting levels for customer safety was a strong motivator to select LED fixtures for the job. TEU partnered with Ed Pearmain, owner of Light Bulbs Etc. in Wichita. Ed’s crew can always be counted on to provide on-time, professional services and Commerce Bank was pleased with the finished project.
The existing pulse start MH fixtures stayed on all night each night and were long past their prime. Many had dropped below an acceptable level of illumination for customer safety and comfort. TEU considered using a retrofit product, but opted to remove and replace the old fixtures with completely new fixtures to provide long life and low maintenance.
To ensure acceptable lighting levels for the upgrade,
TEU’s Engineering Team started with a photometric design to determine the max/min ratios and prove the delivered footcandles.
Light Bulbs Etc. handled the Pilot Install and the entire upgrade. The new 5000K LED fixtures delivered a more even beam spread, increased visibility and color recognition for the security cameras plus a 64% energy reduction.
