Walking alone in the dark can be unsettling. You cannot clearly see what is around you; there could be someone or an animal lurking around out there, but you don’t know for certain. Even walking a short distance in such conditions can leave one anxious.
If your car is some distance away from the building, that walk during the day is no big deal. Hell, it’s an easy way to get a little exercise. However, at night, it’s a different story. If a company has not invested in proper parking lot illumination, there can be many shadowy areas where danger is lurking. This is hardly fair to customers and/or employees. No matter what business you are in, you owe it to patrons and workers to offer a safe atmosphere both inside and outside your establishment.
Some owners complain that the costs required to make such changes are prohibitive. Energy saving industrial projects do require some upfront investment, but the potential savings are usually so great, that money comes back rather quickly. This is due to the incredible advantages of LED technology. LED lights last much longer (meaning fewer dead bulbs and man hours replacing them) and use less electricity, reducing energy bills.
There is also the safety factor we mentioned above. LED lights also provide more effective illumination. With proper placement, those shadowy spots are no more, meaning that people can use the parking area with confidence.
