1. Stand Out From the Competition

With the right lighting, your establishment can literally outshine the competition. Bright LED canopy lights make your gas station more noticeable and inviting, both of which can entice drivers to pull into your station instead of a competitor’s.  And with gas stations and convenience stores on nearly every corner and often right across the street from each other, it’s more important than ever for those in this industry to use every strategy available to bring in customers. Often, a good first impression is what it takes to win over a potential customer, and for fuel stations especially, the look of your facility is what’s delivering that first impression. With bright, friendly lighting, passersby will feel better about your business versus a competitor’s dimly-lit store.

 2. Increase Safety

LED canopy lights not only make your station stand out to drivers on the road, the increased illumination will also make your lot safer and instill confidence in potential customers that they’ll be secure refueling at your pumps. Indeed, bright, clear lighting can be the deciding point in whether a driver chooses to stop at your station or to keep going and see what’s next. In addition, a well-illuminated lot can deter criminals and troublemakers who prefer to do their activities in the shadows.

3. Improve Customer Experience

The welcoming, inviting, safe environment that LED canopy lights for gas station provide can instantly improve customer experience. Visitors to your gas station or business will feel comfortable staying a while, taking a rest from their journeys, and possibly spending more in your convenience store and on other services. With that in mind, consider using LEDs throughout your station, including over the pumps, in the general lot, and in the car wash.

Yes, car washes can be an effective income stream for your station, and LED luminaires make this service even more alluring to customers. These energy efficient luminaires are waterproof and come in a range of colors that can make the car wash fun and dynamic for users.

4. Increase Profits

It’s amazing to think that a change in lighting can really lead to a positive impact on your business’ bottom line, but it’s true! The increased safety, customer experience, and enticing atmosphere that these lights offer, ultimately lead to more people stopping at your business and spending more money while there.

5. Save Energy & Reduce Operation Costs

Many existing gas stations and convenience stores are still using metal halide lamps, and scottsdale box style lights which was a revolutionary technology 40 years ago but is now outdated. These lights put out a lot of heat, which means they’re wasting a significant amount of energy. Upgrading from these or some other older luminary can make a major difference in your energy consumption, which is good for both you and the environment.

6. Less Maintenance

Because LEDs have such long lifespans, they need replacing very rarely. This results in far fewer instances of buying new bulbs and paying an electrician per visit to come out with a lift to replace the lights. When using older lights, many station operators wait until multiple bulbs need replacing, so they don’t have to go through the replacement hassle as often. Unfortunately, this leads to patchy, unattractive lighting that deters customers. LEDs, on the other hand, usually last 2 to 5 times longer than older luminaires and aren’t as noticeable when they do go out.

7. Works with Energy Management Systems

Many LED canopy lights for gas station are capable of integrating with energy management systems, which make it possible to optimize your energy use even more. Through these easy-to-use devices, you can program lights to turn on and off at certain hours, monitor light output, and make other adjustments all from a single platform that’s connected with an entire energy managment system. What’s more, many of them offer regular status reports and system feedback, so you can see exactly how your business is using energy. It’s never been easier to maintain and monitor lighting and energy use!

8. Superior Light Distribution

LED luminaires come in a variety of beam shapes and sizes, so you can get the lighting you need for your specific space and canopy. These bright, modern lights have greater distribution than older technologies that would struggle to illuminate expansive areas, leave pockets of darkness, or that had an unappealing yellowish hue. With LEDs, your station can have even, uninterrupted illumination underneath the entire canopy.

LED Gas Station Canopy Lights Studies: Proving their Effectiveness

LED canopy lights for gas station aren’t just something we think are a good idea, there are countless studies showing the genuine improvements these lights can make. For example, below are just three of the many examples where switching to LEDs made a huge impact on a gas station’s business and bottom line.

Case Study One:

Petro-Canada Stations used LED Lighting in Instead of Neon

What Happened:

In 2004, all new Petro-Canada stations were outfitted with LED lights in their canopies. Their goals were to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and operational costs as well as eliminate the potential health and safety risks associated with neon. The lights provided a single band of light around the canopy and over the gas pumps as opposed to other systems that have gaps in the light every 7 to 10 feet. This helped passersby to see and notice the canopy from a distance.

The End Result:

  • The LEDs used just 15% of the electricity used by neon.

  • The new lights reduced operating costs and energy consumption as compared to the company’s other stations.

  • Members of the management team said the look was superior to their older lights.

Case Study Two:

Timewise Shell Gas Stations Retrofitted their Canopy Lighting with LEDs

What Happened:

In an effort to reduce energy costs and help the environment, owners of a Timewise Shell gas station and convenience store in Laredo, Texas decided to upgrade the lighting in their ten-fuel dispenser island canopy from 320-watt metal halide fixtures to LED luminaries. In addition, they replaced the halide fixtures in the car wash canopy with LEDs.

The End Result:

  • They reduced energy use by 80% in the island canopy and by 61% in the car wash.

  • Their new lights were virtually maintenance-free.

  • The LEDs provided a return on investment in just 3 years.

  • Gas station representatives said the change was good for business, their customers, and the community.

Case Study Three:

Holiday Convenience Stores in the Twin Cities Area Upgrade to LEDs


What Happened:

Tired of dealing with canopy lights that were fading, burned out, and hogging energy, Holiday Convenience stores enlisted the services of Premier Lighting to help them find a more efficient and long term lighting solution for three of their Twin Cities stores. Premier Lighting swapped out all of their 400W HID fixtures for 120W LED canopy luminaires.

The End Result:

  • Light levels at the stores increased by 20%.

  • Holiday saved 74% on energy at all three stores.

  • All stores got a ROI in less than 2 years.

  • Holiday owners were pleased with the more attractive and low-maintenance lighting.

Based on just the three case studies above, we can see the real, positive results that upgrading to LED canopy lights for gas station can deliver to gas stations.  Whether your business is most concerned with reducing maintenance costs, lowering energy consumption, being “greener,” or simply having nicer looking illumination, LEDs can help you meet those goals.
