Premier Lighting Case Study: Parking Lot LED Upgrade


Customer Profile:

The Mermaid is a state of the art bowling and event center located in Mounds View, Minnesota. With over 32 bowling lanes, 3 large event spaces for rent, a bar & grille and a connected hotel, the Mermaid is the go-to location for your special event.


With all of the events going on at the Mermaid, they have a large parking lot that has been lit for years with high wattage metal halide flood and pole mount fixtures. There was a mixture of metal halide and high-pressure sodium floods and pole fixtures that were costly to maintain and operate. In addition, the lighting was different colors and inadequate in areas of the parking lot. There were a few lights that were out and needed to be repaired, but before they went through with that Premier Lighting provided them with options. They could either fix what they had out and continue to have to do that or upgrade everything.

Upgrading Parking Lot lighting to LED

After: New LED Parking Lot Lighting


Premier Lighting installed new high lumen LED floods and pole fixtures in place of the existing HID lights. By doing this, the customer was able to address all of their concerns and not have to worry about doing anything with their exterior parking lot lighting for many years.


The new LED lighting provided 35% more light, a uniform look, and will save over $5,000/year in energy and maintenance. In addition, the LED fixtures have a rated life of over 50,000 hours and the payback on the project was less than 3 years.
