Induction shoe box fixtures are ideal for illuminating aircraft hangers, marinas, car dealerships, gymnasiums, sports halls, swimming pools, warehousing, flood and security lighting for parking lots, residential neighborhoods, and other public spaces that require energy-efficient, high definition area lighting. Energy Efficient Induction Lighting achieves further energy savings when motion sensors are installed.

“Induction lighting is one of the best-kept secrets in energy-efficient lighting.” states the Department of Energy’s Energy Savers blog


energy efficient induction lighting

With a virtually maintenance-free 100,000 hour lamp life rating, energy savings of up to 70 percent, unmatched lumen maintenance, and a faster return on investment (ROI), energy-efficient induction lighting is a great alternative to HID lighting fixtures.

Energy efficient induction lighting fixtures turn on instantly, even in colder temperatures, is really important to facility managers. Unlike HPS, HID, and LED sources, energy-efficient induction lighting fixtures operate in cold temperatures down to -40 degrees Fahrenheit.


Long Lifespan

Experience with using induction lighting at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) near Carlsbad, New Mexico, has demonstrated the long life in actual usage. WIPP’s first induction lighting system was installed in 1998, replacing high-pressure sodium (HPS) lights. More than 10 years later, all but three of the original 36 induction units are still operating after more than 88,000 hours of continuous, 24/7 operation. Additional systems were installed in 2002 and succeeding years, both indoors and outside, with excellent results.


Applications with High Potential for Induction Lighting 

  • In hard-to-reach locations that make maintenance costs high, such as street lighting and tunnels, or in high ceilings where there is continuous operation, such as hotel rotundas
  • Cold environments, such as supermarket walk-in coolers and freezers
  • Where high-quality lighting is required or highly desirable
  • Where reliability is highly valued
  • Where high lumen output is required
  • In areas that require lamps to reach full illumination immediately.


Lighting share of commercial building electricity use


Lighting takes a larger share of a building’s electricity use than any other single end use—more than 35 percent.

Induction Light for Auto Mall and Car Dealer parking lot lights

Auto malls and car dealers are embracing energy efficient LED and Induction Lighting for their outside lighting for car lots and parking. Auto malls are an energy-intensive industry, with dealer parking lot lighting consuming about 110 kBTU per square foot, compared to prime office space at 93 kBTU. Many studies  exist online where an auto mall replaces 1,000w metal halides with Induction lighting.

Auto Mall Replaces 1,000w Metal Halides with Induction Lighting

Retrofitting your parking lot lights can save you up to 40% on energy costs. Car Dealerships that retrofit often see the largest of savings due to the number of exterior fixtures. Induction light fixtures produce the same amount of usable lumens (light) as Metal Halides or HPS and only use about 50% of the electricity, which means that as soon as the poles are retrofitted the auto dealer will see an immediate drop of about 50% in their electric bill the next month. 
Auto Dealership exterior lighting is used to illuminate both facilities and inventory. Given the quantity of exterior lighting in most dealerships, the potential for cost savings can be great.

To improve the efficiency of exterior lighting: Install Induction Lighting systems for lots and facade lighting. Generally, induction lighting systems are preferred over metal halide because of the long life, 100,000 hr rated life expectancy, the industry best 10-year warranty and they render colors better, improving the appearance of the inventory.

They also have a lamp life of 100,000 hrs. or approx. 20 years (If they are on 12 hours/day/ 365 days a year). Compared to MH or HPS lamps, which have an average life of 15,000-24,000 hours, Induction parking lot light fixtures will have significantly less bulb and ballast changes resulting in substantial maintenance savings

The typical savings on converting a 1000 watt Metal Halide to a 400-watt Induction lighting system can be as much as 60%.1000 watt Metal Halide fixtures are typically found at new and used car dealerships, in mall parking lots, indoor and outdoor athletic facilities.

However, if you don’t want to purchase a whole new fixture and want to reuse the existing one, another option is to use two-200 watt rectangles side by side which fits inside a 23″ shoebox fixture.

When considering whether to replace with new induction fixtures are retrofit the existing fixture with an Induction retrofit kit or LED retrofit kits here are a few questions.

1. How high is the fixture?
2. How long has the fixture been in use?
3. Is the fixture providing direct or indirect light?
4. Is the fixture lens in good condition or is it yellowed/browned or rusted

The lens may be unusable causing a significant amount of light loss. Also, the fixture may be so badly degraded that the fixture may need to be replaced and a retrofit may not be possible.

If the fixture is in good condition and above 30′, then a 400w Induction retrofit kit or 400w LED retrofit kits are suitable replacements.

Many local utility companies offer rebates for replacing HID fixtures like Metal Halide (MH) and High Pressure Sodium (HPS) with Induction Light (IL) fixtures. In many cases, the rebate amount for Induction lighting is double the amount given for the newer Pulse Start Metal Halide lamps.
