HID lighting - Idaho Power rebates

  1. 1. Energy Efficient upgrades for HID lighting www.BrightIdeasLightingCo.com 208-378-1889
  2. 2. High Intensity Discharge Lighting <ul><li>Types </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Mercury Vapor </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Metal Halide </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>High Pressure Sodium </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Mercury Vapor <ul><li>Energy Policy Act of 2005 forbids manufacture of after January 1, 2008 </li></ul><ul><li>Oldest HID technology. </li></ul><ul><li>Not common in except in older buildings – 1950s and earlier. </li></ul><ul><li>Relatively inefficient compared to other HID lighting. </li></ul>
  4. 4. High Pressure Sodium <ul><li>Produces orange/yellowish light </li></ul><ul><li>Used in parking lots and high bay fixtures in warehouses </li></ul><ul><li>Long life and high lumens per watt. </li></ul><ul><li>Frequently flash on and off at end of their life. </li></ul><ul><li>Rated life 24,000 hours </li></ul>
  5. 5. Metal Halide <ul><li>Produce white light </li></ul><ul><li>Most common parking lot light type in use today. </li></ul><ul><li>Also very common in warehouse fixtures </li></ul><ul><li>Good lumens/watt and rated life </li></ul>
  6. 6. Metal Halide – probe start <ul><li>Probe-start metal halide – probe in lamp helps to start the lamp. </li></ul><ul><li>Slow warm up time and slow restart time (approx 5 minutes each) </li></ul><ul><li>Run on electromagnetic ballasts. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Metal Halide – pulse start <ul><li>Uses starter in ballast – not lamp </li></ul><ul><li>Much faster warm up and restart times (2-3 minutes) </li></ul><ul><li>Run on electromagnetic or electronic ballasts </li></ul><ul><li>Approx 20% longer life than probe-start </li></ul><ul><li>Less color shift </li></ul>
  8. 8. Metal Halide- pulse start <ul><li>Improved lumen maintenance over probe-start MH </li></ul><ul><li>Improved color rendering over probe-start MH </li></ul><ul><li>Lumens/watt 80-105 </li></ul><ul><li>Currently low market penetration </li></ul>
  9. 9. HID Warehouse lighting upgrades <ul><li>T8 high bay – Best used in heights 25’ or below. Best Idaho Power rebate alternative </li></ul><ul><li>T5 high bay – Most popular in heights above 25’. Very high lumens per watt. More expensive light bulbs and ballasts. </li></ul><ul><li>Pulse-start metal halide – Probably the cheapest upgrade over HPS or Probe start MH, but least savings </li></ul><ul><li>Induction - Long lasting, relatively expensive, can be dimmed and used with occupancy sensors </li></ul>
  10. 10. T5/T8High Output Fluorescent Fixtures <ul><ul><li>Save approximately 50% over HID </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Much better lumen depreciation compared to HID </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Instant on </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>No color shifting </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>On-off controls such as occupancy sensors or manual switching </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Idaho Power Rebate programs <ul><li>Easy Upgrade program- payments up to $100,000 </li></ul><ul><li>Custom efficiency program – must show 100,000 kwh savings per year. May be only program available for LED and Induction </li></ul>
  12. 12. HID Exterior Light Upgrades <ul><li>Pulse-start MH – Cheapest upgrade. Moderate savings, longer rated life than probe-start MH. Can easily retrofit current fixtures. </li></ul><ul><li>LED – Great potential as a product, price very expensive currently, reported long life. Not really available for high wattage HID replacements. Lot of junk products currently on the market. </li></ul><ul><li>Induction – Very long life, proven technology, still relatively expensive, not always “retrofitable” in current fixtures. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Idaho Power Easy Upgrades <ul><li>Available to commercial customers </li></ul><ul><li>Preliminary application needed if project rebates will be over $1,000 </li></ul><ul><li>Can send in paperwork after the work has already been completed </li></ul><ul><li>Covers Exterior lighting “attached to building” </li></ul>
  14. 14. Custom Efficiency Program <ul><li>Must submit application and get approval before project started. </li></ul><ul><li>Must prove 100,000 kilowatt hours per year saved from project (some exceptions) </li></ul><ul><li>Exterior lighting is included </li></ul><ul><li>Program pays lesser of 70% of project costs or 12 cents per kilowatt hour saved. </li></ul>
