Park-N-Go airport parking upgrades to LED lighting to improve visibilitySee the difference between light emitting diode (LED) and high pressure sodium (HPS) lighting in the photo above. Park-N-Go’s economy lot (on the left) utilizes LED lighting so shuttle drivers can quickly find customers’ vehicles. The valet parking lot (on the right) still uses HPS fixtures.
|Industry||Airport parking service|
|Project Scope||Removed 16 – 250 watt HPS fixtures. Installed 16 – 206 watt LED fixtures.|
|Benefits/Savings||29% reduction in energy usage. Improved color rendering (white LED light vs. yellow HPS light.)|
Clear Results“Miami Valley Lighting has been leasing us the lighting system for several years, so they were the obvious choice,” said Brian West, president of Park-N-Go Airport Parking Inc. In June 2014, Miami Valley Lighting installed 16 new LED fixtures in the Park-N-Go self-parking lot. The fixtures provided a brighter natural light that increased the color clarity of the lighting and decreased energy usage. Park-N-Go Manager Georgeann Godsey said employees “like the lighting. They were totally pleased. It has made it much easier to do their jobs.”
Energy-Efficient SolutionMiami Valley Lighting estimates Park-N-Go reduced its energy usage by 29% with the new LED fixtures. With the reduced energy usage and long-term savings on maintenance costs, Miami Valley Lighting was able to keep Park-N-Go’s monthly fees within their budget. West called his company’s interaction with Miami Valley Lighting “very positive.” Godsey said Park-N-Go also appreciates “the fact we can call Miami Valley Lighting and we know the maintenance will be done quickly.”
