Let’s talk about the importance of parking lot lights for commercial businesses for a quick second. Businesses have got to keep their property secure and customers safe by illuminating parking lots, drive thrus, or driveways with commercial parking lot lighting. Typically a parking lot light features an area light fixture mounted on top of a light pole or possibly attached to a building (wall mounted), and are between 12′ and 20′ high.
A well lit parking lot can entice new customers too!
On the technical side of a parking lot light fixture, the voltage can range quite wide due to how the parking lot was initially wired when it was poured and paved. Lights in those voltages typically fall into one of these: 120V, 208V, 240V or 277V (sometimes 480V can be used for some business owners).
Don’t fall behind when it comes to preparing for Daylight Savings too.
