Alternatively Canolux LED luminaires can be installed as a direct replacement for 250W metal halide luminaires and will achieve acceptable illuminance at the pump.

Factor Typical 250W Metal Halide Canolux Canolux LED
Maintenance factor * 0.70 0.80
Average illuminance at floor 400 lux 364 lux
Average vertical illuminance at pump 140 lux 130 lux
Max GR (Glare) 20 21
Maximum total energy load 4.56 kW 1.56 kW
* The maintenance factor for the 250W metal halide is lower due to poorer lumen maintenance of the lamp.

Environmental Savings

Canolux LED not only offers significant energy savings, as well as financial savings, but also has less of an impact on the environment. The reduced power usage (Canolux LED uses half the power of the equivalent HID Canolux) also means that there is less carbon dioxide being generated while the luminaires are switched on.

In the example above Canolux LED requires less than half the number of trees to be planted to absorb/offset the CO2 emissions generated powering the lights. For further information on tree planting with a view to carbon offsetting please view the Thorlux Lighting carbon offsetting project.
