Switch from Metal Halide / High Pressure Sodium TO LED
Picture Above is a 150 watt fixture that replaces a 400w metal halide fixture.
This fixture can be mounted on a pole , on a building as area lighting , Under a canopy (gas station lighting) and more.
Lamp life comparison .
Metal Halide average about 12-1500 hours under optimal conditions.
LED lasts average of 100, 000 hours
If you just compare prices in switching out a lamp inside the metal halide fixture :
100,000 / 15,000 = 9.xx lets say 10 lamps.
10 lamps x 30$ a lamp (250w) = 300$ in just lamps compared to LED .
10 service calls to change out the lamp @ 125 / hr = 1250$ in labor to change out the lamp .
Just in lamps and service calls your cost is 1550 compared to LED which would need NONE.
On top of all this the LED fixture takes a fraction of the power .
Less power, more light, save money , save the environment (carbon footprint) what more could you ask for?

250W MH VS 250LED
Venture Lighting Ballast 250 W MH power consumption – 290 watts
Raab ALED2T78 LED Fixture 250 W equivalent – 90 watts
290 watts x 8 hours a day x 365 days in a year =846,800 watts / 1000(kilowatts) = 846.8 x .25 cents per kw avg= 211.7$ a year
90 watss x 8 hours a day x 365 days in a year =262,800 watts / 1000(kilowatts) = 262.8 x .25 cents per kw avg = 65.7$ a year
The dollar amounts equal how much you are spending on energy costs a year.
Comparison # 2
Venture Lighting 1 W wall pack consumption – 206 watts
Raab WPLED26 fixture equivalent to MH 175 consumption – 30.2 watts
