AviLighting Energy Savings

Existing 100W Incandescent

380’ House * 2 Lines of Lights = 760’ / 20’ Spacing = 38 Lights * 100W each = 3800W per House

3800W / 1000W per kW = 3.8kW * 24hr = 91.2kW per day * $.12 per kW = $10.94 per day

New AviLighting System

380’ House * 2 Lines of Lights = 760’ / 8’ Spacing = 95 Lights * 4.8W each = 456W per House

16 Sections of Water Lights * 6W per section = 96W per House

456W for Feed Lights + 96W for Water Lights = 552W per House Total

552W / 1000W per kW = .552kW * 24hr = 13.25kW per day * $.12 per kW = $1.59 per day
