Do you care about return on investment?

Let's calculate based on an example project!

Let’s assume this project needs 500 pcs High Bays Retrofit.

Traditional Lamp Source 400W MH
What is the quantity of luminaires ? 500pcs
Cost of replacement lamps  in ($) $5
Cost of disposal per lamp ($) $5
Time per fixture for lamp maintenance (Hours) 2hrs
How many people are required for lamp maintenance ? 1
Labor rate ($ per Hour) $75
What is the energy cost on site ? $0.2
Lighting hours of operation per day 10
 Operation days per week? 6
Lift Rental, Scaffolding Costs, Contractor Costs, Ect $500
Estimated  Tax Rebate Per Fixture (if available) 0

We will use 120W HiCloud LED High Bay Light to replace 400W Metal Halide. If you don’t know how, please contact us!

Before we do the calculation, we need to know these:

Total Consumption

The existing 400W metal halide fixtures draw 456W (including ballast consumption).

Two Persons

Use the fully loaded labor rate. Many Harsh and Hazardous locations require 2 person teams.

Replacement Time

Be sure replacement time includes time for approvals, down time, paperwork, lock out tag out, man lift, etc.

Working Time

If you work 8 hour shifts, don‘t forget to add an hour at the end and a hour at the beginning of the day. We often find that there is usually someone there early and late, So you want to take all factors into consideration.

MH Yearly Energy Costs:

0.456kW X 500pcs X 3120hrs/py X $0.2/kw= $142,272 per year

HiCloud LED High Bay Yearly Energy Costs:

 0.120kW X 500pcs X 3120hrs /py X $0.2/kw= $37,440 per year

Yearly Saving at Energy:

$142,272 – $37,440 = $104,832 per year

MH Yearly Energy Costs US$142,272

LED Energy Yearly Costs US$37,440

Yearly Energy Saving US$104,832

So you’re saving US$ 104,832 per year. NO! You are making US$ 104,832 per year

Don’t forget that we haven’t considered conventional HID maintenance costs saving yet.

Oops! We forget to consider conventional HID maintenance costs saving!

You will agree most of projects could be paid back in less than 2 years if you have got the HiCloud LED high bay price.
