LED Pole Lighting

  • Save on electricity costs – Every high intensity discharge (HID) fixture you have can cost you an extra $100 to $300 a year in electricity costs. Switch to LED and start saving every month. LED fixtures use less than half as much energy as an HID fixture.
  • Cut maintenance costs – Don’t lose money and time replacing fixtures and renting lifts. LED fixtures can last up to 100,000 hours. HID fixtures only last around 20,000 hours.
  • Better lighting performance – LED fixtures have a much better color rendering than HID fixtures. This means that you see more vibrant, realistic colors than with HID lighting.
  • Don’t be caught in the dark – HID lights can take up to 15 minutes to fully illuminate when turned on. This wait can cause safety issues. This is not an issue with LED Pole fixtures.
  • Business Eligibility
