Outdoor Lighting – Parking Lot

Exterior LED Upgrade

Hingham, MA


With more than 40 commercial sites, the property manager wanted to lower costs while improving their exterior lighting at their premium shopping location, a vibrant waterfront dining and outdoor market destination in the South Shore town of Hingham, Massachusetts.

  • Total Project Cost:  $66,000

  • 5-year maintenance savings:$22,000

  • Return on Investment:   3.5 Years


The property manager wanted Aetna Corp. to identify energy savings opportunities at their site. Aetna Corp. created a customized LED upgrade proposal, which included all parking lot lighting (decorative acorns, pole lighting and bollards), signage, in-ground lighting and canopy lighting. While onsite for an initial inspection, the lead electrician noticed several decorative fixtures swaying due to the high winds near the water. Aetna Corp.’s team was able to provide preventative maintenance services and recommendations to prevent future fixtures from falling, eliminating potential liability issues.


Over the course of one year, several nor’easters, caused damage to this property lighting. Aetna Corp.’s crew removed ninety-three 295 Watts metal halide shoebox fixtures and replaced them with ninety-three 71 Watts LED Fixtures, which resulted in a return on investment in just three and a half years.
