High Technology Lighting High Technology Lighting. Is LED Right for My Retrofit?>>> The important thing is what the basic source of the energy-the technology-the application and security and maintenace..... Then what is the substitute in case there is something problem... or have no spare... So please give some comment.. as that is not so in liine with the notice.. or might be it is just as the beginning....... Good luck....

Is LED Right for My Retrofit?
8 Steps to Finding the Right Lighting Technology
By : Precision Paragon
Like we’ve said before, at [P2], we love LED lighting. But, we also know that LED isn’t always the best option for every energy efficient lighting project. So, when you’re deciding between LED, fluorescent, incandescent or HID for your next lighting retrofit project, how do you pick the right technology? Our marketing director, Lou Preston, put it best. “We’ve been seeing quite a few projects being driven by technology, and that’s really the tail wagging the dog.”
What Lou’s saying is, don’t pick a lighting technology, then try to shoehorn it into your project. Instead, define what your project’s goals are, then pick the technology that best fits those goals.
So, without further ado, here are our -
8-steps to finding the right energy efficient lighting technology.
1.Define Your Project’s Goals: Why are you taking on a lighting project? Are you trying to slash your energy bills, go green, improve aesthetics, or 
simply taking advantage of utility incentives? Defining your objectives up-front is the best thing you can do to make sure your project doesn’t get sidetracked.
2.Get Help: Not an energy efficient lighting expert? Find one! [P2]’s service hub offers access to well-qualified energy efficient lighting experts who can help you find the right lighting technology for your next project. Give them a call at (714) 386-5550, or send an email to info@p-2.com This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
3.Evaluate Viable Technologies: With most projects, there’s likely more than one lighting technology that will meet your project objectives. Define what these are.
4.Pick Your Fixtures: Pick the specific fixtures from each technology that meet your project’s goals. There’s a world of difference between talking about “a fixture” and “this specific fixture from this manufacturer in this application.” Gather as much information about each fixture as you can.
5.Do a side-by-side comparison: Compare the features of each fixture you selected, including financial (fixture cost, energy consumption, replacement and maintenance intervals), performance (optics, lumen depreciation, automation options, warmup times) and aesthetics.
6.Prioritize, based on your project’s goals: Now that you know how your options stack up against each other, decide which features are the most important to you. Are initial costs, or long-term energy savings more important to your project? How about customizable optics, or long-term maintenance free op
eration? Every technology has its advantages and disadvantages, so you’ll need to select the features that fit the most closely with your project’s goals.
7.Watch out for “showstoppers”:Sometimes, you run into a feature that takes a technology out of the running for your project. For example, if you’re putting fixtures in a difficult to access location, having to replace a bulb every two months would be a “showstopper,” even if that option showed the greatest energy savings.
8.Pick the Best: The best technology for your project is the one that comes the closest to meeting your goals. And of course, you don’t have to settle with just one. [P2] customers often use a mix of lighting technologies in a single retrofit.
After following these steps, you can be confident that you haven’t just picked a lighting technology because it’s been in the news lately, or because you saw it on the front of a lighting catalog. You’ll have picked the technology that’s right for your lighting project.
