The 150W Stargate produced light output equivalent to the 400W metal halide fittings, which were both suspended from 11m ceiling heights and surface mounted from 5-6m ceiling heights.
The warehouse operates for around 10 hours per day Monday to Friday, which was within the 5,000 annual operating hours cap for warehouses under NSW Energy Savings Scheme. The full lighting energy saving could be converted into Energy Savings Certificates and rebates.
The lighting levels produced by the Stargate LED high bay were measured to exceed requirements to comply with AS1680.2.4 for pallet racking, packing & dispatch activities within the warehouse.
The metal component and the lamps of the original metal halide fittings were recycled, as required under the NSW Energy Savings Scheme.
