Based on some simple assumptions, the operating costs of the LE360LED 120W light can
be compared to a 400W metal halide, with the LE360LED coming out ahead in all scenarios.

 

400W metal Halide

LE360LED

Annual cost of energy
 (24 hours per day x 7 days a week
x 52 weeks/year x $0.089 per kWh)
$311.86 $93.56
Annual bulb costs

$15.00  x 6 bulbs per year

$0.00
Operating costs per year

$401.86

$93.56

 

This analysis does not even include the downtime associated with replacing bulbs,
restarting the metal halide light after power outage, or the lost injury time associated with
coming into contact with a hot 400W metal halide light.
