In response to an overwhelming interest in innovations in LED lighting technology for the outdoor area lighting applications, San Diego Gas & Electric’s Emerging Technologies Program (ETP) objectives with this assessment were:

• identify potential LED solution for outdoor area lighting, specifically parking structures,
• assess LED lighting technologies, validating manufacturer’s claims regarding energy savings, light levels and light characteristics,
• perform a comparison of the new technologies against traditional high intensity discharge technology in a parking structure to determine customer acceptance levels of the new LED technologies.

This assessment project demonstrated that properly designed LED luminaires can provide energy savings of up to 60% without compromising light characteristics required for parking structure applications.
