Lighting It Up

This article examines the importance of quality lighting on the parking environment, as it creates a welcoming atmosphere with a sense of safety that encourages guests to return. Smart lighting strategies can also significantly lower energy consumption and maintenance costs. A case study of a parking garage in Boston, Massachusetts is presented. The Boston Marine Industrial Park (BMIPI) parking facility, owned and operated by the Economic Development and Industrial Corporation (EDIC), uses the OSRAM PermaLED Low Profile LED Canopy Luminaire lighting system; the use of this system is predicted to result in an annual saving of 473,040 kWH, which translates into $70,956 in energy savings and an avoidance of 530,0070 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions from electricity plants.
