LED Pole Lights

Today it is very easy to update your existing LED Pole Lights to a new LED Shoebox Fixture light or a Retrofit LED light and save energy and eliminate your maintenance problems for a long time.

Older LED Pole Lights are very inefficient. They usually use anywhere from a 100W to 1000W Metal Halide Lamps or a High Pressure Sodium Lamp. Both of these shoe box fixtures lare every inefficient and use a lot of energy. A new LED shoe box fixture will use a lot less energy than the metal halide and high pressure sodium lamp. As an example a standard 400W Metal Halide Lamp will draw about 486W per hour. A new LED Shoebox fixture will draw only 120W per hour. That is a savings of 366 watts per hour. Maintenance on these new lights is eliminated for at least 10 years.

This picture shows and older Pole light fixture with 1000W Metal Halide lamps inside. You can see on the right side a 360W LED Retrofit that was put in to replace the existing 1086W metal halide lamp saving them 726W per hour out of just one light. Once they change out the other three lamps they will save o ver 2900 watts per hour on just this one pole.

Retrofit LED Shoebox Fixture

This is a typical 400W LED Shoebox fixture that was retrofitted with a 120W LED Retrofit light saving them about 336W per light per hour. When you start adding up the wattage saved per month, per year it adds up to a payback usually under 2 years but in some areas a lot less because the cost of electric is very high. In California and on the East Coast you can see electric rates at $.17 to $.22 cents.


Older pole light fixtures using Metal Halide or High Pressure Sodium lamps only last a few years. Here is the truth about older HID lamps.

Here is The Truth About HID Lamps

All metal halide bulbs have a relatively short life span compared to new LED technologies that are available today. This article is telling you what you may not realize if you are the owner of metal halide lights.

           400 Watt Metal Halides Lose 50% Light Output At About 50% Of The Life Of The Bulb.

How long a lamp lasts and how long it's good for are two totally different things. Most lamp manufacturers rate their 400WMH lamps between 16,000 and 20,000 hours.

However as you can see from the chart, the lamps are only producing around 50% of their intended light after only 10,000 hours. The lighting output begins to decline the first time you turn on the power to the new bulb. 

You get a fixture that gives you the equivalent of 200 watts of light for the cost of 400 according to the graph. Not a good deal!


  A 1000 Watt Metal Halide Light Loses 50% of Lumens Even Faster

1000WMH lamps are rated for a life of around 11,000 hours. So in keeping in the characteristics of metal halide they would produce the light output of a 400 WMH lamp in roughly 5,000 to 6,000 hours of use.

This means that you are only getting 50% of the output from your 1000WMH, but you are still burning 1058 watts.  You are getting 1/2 the light for 100% of the cost of operating the fixture.  Is that a good deal?

Metal Halide lighting is not a cost effective way to light your facility anymore.  Neu-Tech Energy Solution uses LED Retrofit lighting technology that has a L90 lifetime and chips that  put out the highest lumen count on the market today… which means we use LESS ENERGY, PRODUCE MORE LIGHT AND WE LAST LONGER THAN ALL OTHERS.

Today it is all about Lumens.

In Technical terms this is what Lumens means.

Unit of measurement: candelas per square meter [cd/m2]
The luminance of a light source or an illuminated area is a measure of how much the eye is stimulated and therefore of how great an impression of brightness is created in the brain. Let ' s assume we are looking at an illuminated (or self-luminous) area from a particular direction. The luminous intensity of this area divided by its size apparent to our eyes is its luminance L. It is measured in candelas per square meter (cd/m2).

To summarize all this, the intensity (I) of the source is candelas, the flux () transmitted through space is lumens, the light illuminating a surface (E) is lux (lumen/ m2), and the light reflected from an area, the luminance (L) is candela/m2.

Bottom line is the higher lumen count you have the better. Years ago we bought light bulbs based on watts. Today is it Lumens per watt.

When we first started in this business we were buying LED bulbs to replace existing 400W metal halides lamps at 70 lumens per watt. Today we are up to 130 Lumens per watt. So years ago we were installing 100W LED lights at 7000 lumens with 70W per watt.  Today we are installing 120W LED Parking lot lights with about 16,000 lumens. We have doubled the lumen count and bumped the watts up about 20. The light output from 100W to 120W lights is amazing. The difference in price from a 100W LED parking lot light to a 120W LED parking lot light is not that significant so better to go with a few more watts and a lot more lumen count.
