Why Group Re-lamp Group Re-lamping is crucial to a successful lighting program aimed at getting the optimum light output at the most effective cost. The more lamps burn, the less light they deliver.  

Vs. Spot Re-lamp Lamp replacement on an as-needed basis, only after lamp has failed Spot Relamping labor cost is generally 5 times greater than Group     Replacement labor costs.  

Cost of Lighting Initial Investment/Considerations

  • Materials:  The cost to purchase lamps, luminaries, ballasts & wiring
    • Lamps: Consider efficacy (LPW)
    • Ballast:  Choice will effect power consumption and light levels
    • Fixtures: Ability to deliver light where needed?
  • Operating Costs:  The electrical energy costs to operate the lamps over their life
  • Maintenance:  The cost of replacement lamps and ballasts, and installation labor costs to replace burned out lamps
    • Labor to Install:  Dependent on fixture type and number being installed
  • Electricity = Lamp Watts X Rated Lamp Life X Cents per kWh (Kilowatt Hour)

Importance of Group vs. Spot Re-lamping
  • Lighting System Maintains Higher FC Levels
  •   Reduced Labor Costs
    •  .20 Minutes/Fixture - Sport Re-lamping (Higher Hourly Rate)

vs.                    .03 Minutes/Fixture - Group Re-lamping (Low Hourly Rate)

  • Fewer Work Interruptions to Replace Spot Failures
    •  Labor slated in off peak hours
  •   Lamp to Lamp Color Uniformity
  •   Light level uniformity
  •   Less Inventory
  •   Lamp warranty tracking easier to administer
  •   Lamp recycling more cost effective
