Premier Lighting Case Study: Outdoor Metal Halide Retrofit to LED


Customer Profile:

Mohawk Moving & Storage has been a trusted adviser to thousands of customers in thousands of locations. Their experience encompasses 75 years of professional moving, packing, transporting and storage services.


Mohawk has been calling Premier Lighting once or twice a year for the last several years to service outdoor lights that needed repair. This was costly and on top of that, the light output was poor. Brighter lighting was needed as trucks and employees come in at night and need to have better visibility.


Before: 400W-1000W Metal Halides – After: New 150W-300W LED Fixtures


Mohawk’s existing outdoor lights consisted of 400W and 1000W metal halides. New LED fixtures were needed to light the area up sufficiently. Premier put together a proposal that included a mixture of 150W and 300W LED wallpacks, floods and area lights that would greatly improve the existing lighting and would not need to be serviced for over 5 years.


Once the old metal halides were replaced with LED, Mohawk had a 30% increase in light levels while saving 74% on energy. The LEDs were set to last 4-5 times longer than the metal halides. Mohawk will reach full payback on the project in less than 3 years.
