A Central Phoenix automotive repair center had reached out to one of our energy contractors to retrofit the facility without being overly invasive! The owners wanted to keep it simple, save energy, and increase safety by brightening up the facility both inside and out! Additionally, the owners wanted to complete this project in stages!!

The first stage was the inside of the automotive repair shop! Miller Lighting Products recommended converting the T8 fluorescent fixtures in the shop from F32T8 fluorescent 32-watt lamps to LED 18-watt T8 tubes and Non-Shunted sockets!! The shop had a total of 32 fixtures with 2 lamps per fixture. The ballast was bypassed! Total savings by converting 1390 watts!!


Miller Lighting Products offers a multi-functional LED T8 (Miller Part# LT841850TP), which can be utilized with Shunted OR Non-Shunted sockets, bypass or wired direct, and/or single or double end wiring!! Very convenient for strip fixtures or troffer retrofits!! These LED fixtures can be found in 4000K or 5000K, 12, 14, and 18-watts!! Click here to view these products on our website

Once the retrofit of the interior of this Central Phoenix automotive repair center was completed the second stage was to shine more light on the outside canopy area. This area, previously utilized for pumping gas, had been converted to a customer car drop off/pick up, service work, and/or staging area.

They were previously utilizing the OLD large box type fixtures with 400-watt Metal Halide, 8 fixtures in total. The previous light fixtures caused a large light depreciation and the area was quite dim. It was also discovered that some of the lights didn’t even work at all!! Here is what it looked like previously:


Canopy Exterior Before


Miller Lighting Products recommended the LED garage canopy lights with 150-watt LED 5000K (Miller Part# LGSL150). Only 4 of them were needed to give off the requested amount of light, in turn only utilizing HALF of the original fixtures!! These fixture options can be found on our website under our Garage and Convenience Store LED fixtures! The original wattage was 3360!! Which was then brought down to 600 watts!! AN 82% savings!!!

Look and see the difference via the after images below. The area is much brighter, sharper, and safer with just this simple lighting change!!


Canopy Exterior After


But wait, there’s more………….

The final sage was to the NORTH side of the property covering the parking area and the North Garage doors they previously had a 400-watt HPS Barn yard light!! This light had faded out over time!! Miller Lighting Products, replaced it with the Miller LED 200-watt shoebox with photocell and an angled direct mounting bracket (Miller Part# LSBS200-5K).   Adding an additional 50% energy savings.
