Which Lighting System is Right for You?

LED lighting systems are changing the way we light our indoor and outdoor spaces. In interior high ceiling applications and exterior areas that traditionally use HID fixtures, LEDs offer significant energy savings and dramatically reduce maintenance costs. LEDs paired with customizable controls can save you substantially more energy than LEDs without controls as the lighting output can be adjusted to meet project requirements. Use the chart below to determine which LED lighting system best fits your HID retrofit needs.
