MaxLite Enlightens Dark Service Station

MaxLite recently shed a little light on a dark service station in Mexico by installing its LED Outdoor Fixtures.


The Challenges
The Servicio Express Aeropuerto Carret on Monterrey-Laredo Highway in Cienega de Flores, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, needed new, energy-efficient lighting for the service station’s parking lot and canopy that covers the pumping stations.

The Solution
The thirteen existing 250-watt metal halide flood lights were replaced with MaxLite’s 70-watt LED Flood Lights throughout the parking lot of the service station, brightening up previously dark areas. Ten 320-watt metal halide canopy fixtures were swapped out for ten 70-watt LED Fuel Pump Canopy Luminaires underneath the canopy to create a bright space that cars can easily navigate.

The Benefits
By switching from thirteen inefficient 250-watt metal halide flood to MaxLite’s 70-watt LED lighting fixtures, the service station will reduce energy consumption by 146,307 kWh in energy and $23,094 in energy and maintenance. The service station is expected to reduce energy by 128,050 kWh and save $19,670 in energy and maintenance costs by replacing its 320-watt metal halide canopy lights with LED Fuel Pump Canopy Luminaires in a one-for-one replacement. In the end, the Mexico-based service station will save 274,357 kWh of energy and $42,762 in energy and maintenance costs over the life of the fixtures.

“We chose the canopy and flood light fixtures because of the substantial energy savings they will provide to our customer,” said Daniel J. Salazar Cardenas, Distributor Lighting Consultants, S.A. de C.V. “Once the fixtures were installed, we were happy with the excellent light quality of the once dark service station.”
