1000 Watt HID Retrofit

Popular and proven retrofit or replacement options for 1000 watt metal halide, high pressure sodium, low pressure sodium, or mercury vapor fixtures. Whether you have an indoor or outdoor fixture, these typically fit inside and provide great energy savings with decreasing or eliminating maintenance costs, all while increasing light levels. LED, induction, and perhaps fluorescent technology are all included below. There are also some different Kelvin temperature options, but most applications now use 5000K-5500K, which are brighter and emit a pure daylight white color, like the color of the white on this page.

1000W HID lamps and ballasts are very popular, but the energy efficient retrofits haven't totally caught up to retrofit such a high wattage. Typically it is best to replace the whole fixture with the existing options available, and we have added a number of our most popular ones below. We see 1000W HID's in some indoor high bay warehouse or industrial type of lighting, and they can also be used in pole lights, stadium lights, and other very high ceiling or exterior mount applications.

If none of these fit your needs, please contact us or email our sales team and we'll be happy to help you find the right kit.

All of the products listed above are popular items typically used to replace 1000 watt metal halide or sodium lighting components in your existing light fixture. Most are LED as they are smaller format and pack more of a punch for the wattage used. That also means they are more efficient than induction and fluorescent.

1000W HID's are one of the most popular and prevalent wattages out there for very large, bright, and tall applications. They are used extensively throughout indoor and outdoor lighting, typically between 30 and 50+ foot mounting height. In stadiums and arenas you'll notice there are hundreds of bulbs from hundreds of feet away, and they are all 1000W-1500W metal halide bulbs. They are extremely powerful and send light out very far, but it is still the older technology and uses a ton of power. At 1080 watts, which is what they really use with the magnetic ballast, it costs anywhere between 12-20 cents (In the USA) per hour per bulb to operate. This means at an average of 9 hours per day year round, one 1000W HID fixture costs at least about $400.00 in energy, not to mention the maintenance costs.  In more costly states like CA and NY and other coastal states, this figure can easily be $600.00+ to $800.00+ or more.

This is why at first glance the LED light fixtures included in this category using anywhere between 350 and 600 watts, depending on the specifications and application use, it cuts energy in half or more, creating a low payback of between 2-4 years. Utility rebates exist in most areas of the country and they usually provide large amounts to retrofit your HID fixtures with these new fixtures.  Maintenance is also eliminated for years with these new fixtures lasting over 50,000 hours, or 8+ years and reasonable operating hours.

1000W HID's have a E39/E40 mogul base size. We do have medium E26/E27 options though if needed with these same kits. You will save over 50% energy using any one of these bulbs, with the new wattage using around 200W or less to replace a 1000W HID, which uses closer to 455-460 watts of power with the old ballasts.  This wattage is also used in many light poles, street, wall pack, building exterior, landscape, and higher ceiling warehouse and industrial spaces.
