Commercial LED Lighting Continues to be the Hot Trend
Referring to the growth of the commercial market as a “trend” may be a misnomer. A “trend” often refers to something that is temporarily in style. The growth and adoption of LED lighting in commercial applications, however, is anything but temporary. Industry analysts expect commercial LED lighting to be the standard for all illumination systems for many years to come.
Safe Lighting Options for Parking Facilities
A business’s parking lot is typically what creates the first and last impression that a customer or client receives when visiting that business. A poorly-lit parking lot can create a bad first impression as a customer rushes through the darkness from his car and into the business, and can leave the customer feeling unsettled and ill at ease when he later returns to his car after conducting his business. LED parking lot lighting can alleviate these negative impressions and can save a substantial amount of money for any business or a parking lot operator that manages a parking facility.

US automaker, General Motors reports that the company has installed 186,000 LED bulbs and fixtures at its facilities in the past two years
The LED lighting installation is just one of many energy-saving projects that the company has taken on this year that will save an estimated $73 million in energy costs annually. GM has the ambitious goal of meeting the electricity needs of all of its global operations with 100 percent renewable energy by 2050.
“Energy efficiency can reduce electricity loads, which will help us more easily transition to renewable energy sources,” said Al Hildreth, GM’s global energy manager. “Together, these environmental improvements help us reduce our carbon footprint, cut costs and deliver value back to our customers.” GM points out that sixteen of its facilities recently earned recognition for continued efforts to increase energy efficiency.
Defiance Operations replaced fluorescent lighting with 200 LED fixtures throughout the facility. This upgrade helped Defiance reduce energy intensity by over 20 percent in 2 years. Bedford Casting Operations installed translucent walls with a southern exposure, which reduce the need for artificial lighting in the plant. Actions like this helped the facility reduce its energy intensity by 12 percent. Grand Rapids Operations replaced 11,000 lights with LED tubes, which helped the facility reduce energy intensity by 18 percent. More information can be found at http://www.gm.com
