LED ROI By The Numbers

Here are the actual numbers from one of our recent LED retrofit projects we completed in the Metro St. Louis Area…


  • 27,000 SF Warehouse
  • Lit by 118 400w Metal Halide High Bay Lights
  • Used 3,000 hours per year at $.10 per kWh for an annual expense of $16,284.00


  • 118 Metal Halide Lights Replaced with 51 LED High Bay lights
  • Used 3,000 hours per year at $.10 per kWh for an annual expense of $2,769.30
  • Total Cost of Project Including Labor: $20,187.94
  • Ameren Illinois Incentive: $20,006.05
  • Net Cost to Starbeam Customer: $181.89

Yes, that’s correct less than $200 which took just two weeks to ROI (well 15 days, but almost 2 weeks).  More importantly, perhaps is our customer now has a much brighter and more productive working warehouse!
