As one of the highest volume dealerships in the Midwest, Dave Dennis Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, RAM auto dealership needs to have parking lot lighting that shows off rows and rows of new and used cars, trucks, SUVs and vans in the best possible way to interest car buyers. Like most businesses, Dave Dennis needed to watch the bottom line when it came to costs – so the Dayton auto dealership turned to Miami Valley Lighting to update its existing fixtures to cut energy costs. “Our lights are running all the time,” said the President of Dave Dennis Auto Group. “It made a lot of sense to be able to do it.” Dave Dennis asked about switching to LED lighting to replace the old and dated metal halide fixtures that were illuminating its outdoor sales lot at 4232 Colonel Glenn Highway.

Driving energy savings

Miami Valley Lighting responded by redesigning the lot, which resulted in a dramatic reduction in the number of fixtures – from 127 to 59. The change helped Dave Dennis garner more than 80% in energy savings. Since the installation, Dave Dennis officials noted the new outdoor fixtures are lighter weight, which is expected to extend the life of the poles. The fixtures no longer sway in the wind.
