        traditional lighting sources
• Long life span, up to 100,000 hours
• Variety of color options
• Low operation costs
• No UV radiation
• No mercury
• Instant on, no start-up time
• Silent operation
• Reduces “Carbon Footprint”
  Carbon Footprint: facts in evidence
• Energy consumption for all lighting in the U.S. is estimated to
be 22% of the total electricity generated.

• If every U.S. home replaced their 5 most frequently used light
fixtures with LED lighting, we would save close to $8billion
per year in energy costs, and prevent greenhouse gas emissions
equivalent to that produced by 10 million cars.

•If just 25% of U.S. lighting fixtures were converted to LEDs,
we would save $115 billion in utility costs, alleviate the need
to build 133 new coal-burning power stations; reduce carbon
emission by 158 million metric tons and avoid releasing 5,700
pounds of airborne mercury (from fluorescent) per year.

Parking Lot Lights
               Case Study: Parking Lot
                                Labor Savings
20 400watt Metal Halide parking lot fixtures were Retrofitted with BestCore™ R48
retrofit board. The average annual energy bill was $4,266. The calculated annual LED
energy cost is $508.00. That’s $3,758 or 88% energy savings.

20 NEW LED fixtures were installed in a separate lot. It took 2 electricians 3 days to
complete the install.

Approximate labor cost: $5,200.00

The 20 BestCore™ boards were retrofitted into the existing canopy fixtures. It took 2
electricians 3 hours to complete the canopy.

Approximate labor cost: $600.00

Labor savings: $4,600.00 or 91%
