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 13 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 10 70-watt LED Fuel Pump Canopy Luminaires underneath the canopy to create a bright space that cars can easily navigate.
By switching the 23 inefficient metal halide flood and canopy fixtures to MaxLite’s LED lighting fixtures, the service station will reduce energy consumption by 268,000 kWh in energy and $32,160 in energy and maintenance.
MaxLite has been committed to providing energy efficient lighting products for the last 20 years, and was one of the first movers into LED technology in the industry. An ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year, MaxLite established the MaxLED® brand, an extensive line of indoor and outdoor lighting fixtures featuring innovative LED luminaires and lamps using the latest state-of-the-art LED technology.
