Many utilities offer rebate programs which reward parking garages which use more energy-efficient lighting. Newer garage lighting fixtures that can dramatically reduce energy costs are briefly reviewed. Features to look for when choosing a lighting system that would be energy efficient are listed: fixtures with high-efficiency and high spacing-to-mounting ratios; fixtures with at least 20% uplight; fixtures with 3 distribution types (symmetric, forward throw, narrow); fixtures that are U.L. listed for wet locations; fixtures that include quick mounting plates; and those that are prelamped and sealed at the factory.
