Deco Lighting Illuminates Bonelli Park with Induction Lighting to Save L.A. County 50% in Energy Costs


The spectacular and scenic Bonelli Park in San Dimas, California, located 30 miles east of Los Angeles needed new lighting. The 2,000 acre park offers visitors year-round recreational activities, including hiking, bicycling, swimming, horseback riding, boating and camping. Strategic roadways and parking areas throughout the park used antiquated and unattractive cobrahead streetlighting fixtures with inefficient 400 watt metal halide lamps.

Deco Lighting provided a lighting solution that gives Bonelli Park and The County of Los Angeles a combination of immediate energy savings, long term maintenance cost savings, and visually aesthetic benefits. 243 existing 400 watt cobrahead fixtures
were replaced with Deco Lighting Python D8622i luminaires with 200 watt Induction lamps. Similar light levels were achieved using half the wattage and saving an estimated 50% on utility energy costs. With 100,000 hour life, the Induction lamps save substantial relamp and maintenance costs versus the metal halide fixtures that required lamp replacement after less than 20,000 hours. Projected annual kWh energy and maintenance savings for The County of Los Angeles are $275,179.

Finished in dark bronze, the Deco luminaires and poles blend beautifully and harmoniously into Bonelli Park’s landscape and mountain scenery. Park visitors and staff benefit from the new Deco Induction lighting by providing reliable,
instant-on performance with no warm-up delays, superior color rendering, better visibility and enhanced safety.
Deco Lighting offers the largest selection of Induction lamp indoor and outdoor fixtures available. Deco Induction luminaires provide 100,000 hour life for substantial long term maintenance savings with 3 to 10 times the service life versus HID lamps.

High 85+ lumens per watt and high efficiency performance allow Induction luminaires to provide similar light levels with half the wattage of HID and the benefit of 50% or more in utility cost savings. Deco Induction luminaires feature instant on, no restrike, cold weather performance down to -40°C/F, electrode-less
lamps for vibration resistance, superior lamp lumen depreciation with 80% lumens at 60,000 hours, excellent 90 CRI color, and 10 year warranty.
