Puente Hills Mitsubishi Lights up with LED Trial

We wanted to improve the light coverage and light color quality at our lot to enhance our customers’ experience when shopping for cars. LED Trail’s LED lights proved to be a great fit for our requirements. We are very happy with our LED lighting choices and the reduction of our electricity costs.

Located in Greater Los Angeles area, Puente Hills Mitsubishi is a New Mitsubishi and Used Car Dealership. Puente Hills Mitsubishi strives to provide outstanding service in all areas of their automotive dealership.

They stock a large amount of high quality, new, and certified pre-owned vehicles to serve the Los Angeles and Anaheim region.

In this popular car dealership, the store’s ambiance was disturbed often by low quality or flickering florescent tubes. Low light quality negatively affected the intensity and color of the lighting, and did not truly represent the natural color of vehicles. Bulbs needed to be replaced regularly which disrupted the day to day business and distracted customers and the staff.

In addition, some areas in the parts shop were too dark, causing difficulty for employees when pulling parts. Low levels of visibility caused delays and inefficiency. Also, the parts store had T12 tubes that were not energy efficient, contributing to high energy costs, which increased operational costs.

The client investigated lighting options that would improve light quality, reduce energy and maintenance costs, and make the dealership stand out.

“LED Trail helped us look at several options. They worked with us to pick the best options based on our requirements …”, Said Bakhtiari.

Ultimately, Puente Hills Mitsubishi selected LED Trail’s EZ-Mount tubes as well as LED retrofit tubes for their showroom. They also upgraded their inefficient HID lights in their garage with LED Trail’s Crater High Bay lights.

LED Trail LED lamps provide high-quality light using significantly lower wattage, delivering substantial energy cost savings while lasting 10 to 15 times longer than traditional lamps. Based on customer calculations, the upgrade to LED is expected to save the store over $15,000 annually in energy costs and lighting maintenance savings.

Those cost savings plus incentives, the utility company serving this dealership, reduced the payback period for the entire lamp retrofit project to less than 20 months. Moreover, the reduction in energy consumption is estimated to eliminate over 120,000 pounds annually in CO2 emissions, which equates to saving approximately 5,700 trees each year.

The ownership of Puente Hills Mitsubishi is planning future lighting replacements to LED Trail LEDs in other stores.
