Parking lot factoids

Parking lot factoids you probably didn’t know… Building owners spend more than $6 billion annually just to light parking lots and garages – a recent energy efficiency project cut energy use by 90% over the past year by targeting lightening retrofits across 270 million square feet of parking spaces. The metal halide, fluorescent and LED retrofits will last up to three times longer and lighting control systems enable participants to reduce energy consumption when their parking facilities are not in use.
