In our before and after photo comparison, this was a national retail chain that had less than one (1) average foot candles illuminating their parking area with five (5) 175-watt wall packs and three (3) 400-watt parking lot fixtures. The challenge was to better illuminate the storefront area, parking area, and entrance. We replaced the existing lighting with five (5) 57-watt LED forward throw wall packs, and three (3) 150-watt parking area lights. A Before and After Example of a Exterior LED Retrofit - in Blog Image The lighting performance results were an improvement from less than 1 average foot candle to a 3.03 average foot-candle.
