Parking Lot Lighting: Ingram Park Mall
Watch the dramatic before and after images of Ingram Park Mall in San Antonio, TX. FSG used Acuity lighting to not only create a dramatic difference in the exterior lighting but create energy savings that will pay for the project in less than 5.5 years.
Ingram Park Mall, in San Antonio, had a very common problem. They had a large parking area that was covered by a small number of old light fixtures. This is typical when facilities are originally built with metal halide or mercury vapor lights that simply don’t have the lighting radius and strength of LED lighting. Not only did the old lights cause safety and security concerns for the customers of the mall, but Ingram Park Mall was paying a premium for the dated lighting as well.
Many businesses depend on nighttime business. Malls, retail stores, car dealerships, airports, restaurants, movie theaters and others rely on evening customers. LED lighting gives customers and employees a safer and more welcoming experience. According to the Department of Justice, “Good lighting deters crime and produces a more secure atmosphere. It is one of the few facility features that has been documented to reduce crime in parking facilities.”
FSG installed 110 new Acuity LED fixtures to upgrade Ingram Park Mall’s dated lighting fixtures. As a result, the mall achieved an annual savings of 329,632 KwH, and a cost savings of $30,382. Many businesses don’t realize that they may also qualify for energy rebates and programs offered by municipalities, service providers and manufacturers. FSG helps businesses take advantage of those programs. In addition, FSG offers multiple financing options for businesses that want to minimize upfront costs.

In a recent study in NYC, it was found that improved parking lot lighting reduced crime by 39%.
The study was conducted in a public housing area that had a record for nighttime crimes in the area. Improved environmental design has also shown an improvement in crime reduction in commercial areas like malls, restaurants, and hospitals.
Since there are normally a small number of people in a parking lot compared to the inside of a mall or hospital, parking lots have become a likely location for criminal activity. Adequate parking lot & parking garage lighting continues to be one of several deterrents to criminal activity.
