Buyer’s guide for calculation

How much can you save by replacing MH lamps with LED floodlights? To simplify the steps, we can calculate the reduced power consumption (i.e. 1000W mh-400w LED = 600W saving). For example, if you turn on the lights 12 hours a day, the annual saving on electricity is equal to,
(8 pcs x 600W x 12 hours) / 1000 x $0.12 x 365 days = $2523
Tennis court lighting, due to the size of the tennis court is small, lighting energy consumption is low. In this way, owners can save $2523 a year after switching to LED floodlights. And the service life of our LED sports lights is 80,000 hours, when works 12 hours a day, it can work about 18 years. Maintenance costs are minimized when MH lights are converted to LED floodlights.
