Green lighting biz efficient Induction fixtures will brighten up your car dealership beautifully. Most car dealerships feature inefficient Metal Halide or High Pressure Sodium fixtures. These technologies have a steep depreciation curve, meaning that they lose brightnes rather quickly. Metal Halide, for example, loses 30% of its brightness within the first 5,000 hours. By the 60,000th hour, an Induction fixture loses only 10% of its brightness, and 20% by the 80,000th hour. That means your store will be visible to drivers further away on the road. What’s better advertising than that?

Your Product, Highlighted

Good lighting can showcase a company’s products in a much better way. LED and Induction lighting offer excellent Color Rendering Index (or CRI, “a lamp’s ability to render object colors”). Metal Halide and High Pressure Sodium fall short, offering a CRI that is just fair.

This improvement alone can be quite significant for car dealership owners, for example. Imagine, how red would you like that red sports car to be?



The most common type of lighting technology utilized on auto dealerships is Metal Halide, a High Intensity Discharge (H.I.D.) System. Metal Halide provides high lumen output, but it has a very high lumen depreciation rate. That means that after 20,000 hours (or 4 and a half years at 12 hours per day), the Metal Halide lamp will lose 40% of its brightness – and it will turn yellow, pink or green. Other shortfalls of H.I.D. Systems are a lot of glare, a lot of flicker and delayed restrike – creating an unsafe environment.

Induction lighting, on the other hand, has comparable lumen output, will only lose 5% of its brightness over the same period of time, has no glare nor flicker and it has instant restrike. And that’s before we start talking about energy consumption.
