Parking Lot Pole Lighting, Walmart

Lightning Mobile Electric provides service work and the re-installation of a parking lot pole light for a Colorado Walmart.


Installing parking lot pole lights can come with their own set of challenges. Typically with any job of this caliber, there are some common issues:

Electrical Wiring:

Properly wiring the lights and connecting them to a power source can be challenging, especially if the parking lot is large or has limited access to electrical infrastructure. It may require trenching, laying conduit, and ensuring proper grounding.

Pole Placement:

Determining the correct placement and height of the poles is crucial for adequate lighting coverage. Factors such as the size of the parking lot, surrounding structures, and visibility requirements need to be taken into consideration.

Permits and Regulations:

Depending on your location, there may be specific permits and regulations that need to be followed when installing parking lot pole lights. These can include height restrictions, setback requirements, and compliance with local electrical codes.

Maintenance and Accessibility:

Accessing and maintaining the lights can be challenging, especially if they are mounted at a significant height. Regular inspections, bulb replacements, and cleaning might require special equipment or trained personnel. Additionally, use of a boom truck or crane may be necessary.

Light Pollution:

Care must be taken to ensure that the lights do not cause excessive light pollution or glare, which can affect neighboring properties or drivers' visibility. Shielding and directing the light appropriately can help mitigate these issues.


Lightning Mobile Electric sourced all the required tools, equipment, machinery, and materials to repair and re-install this light pole. We utilized the boom truck to place and secure the pole once the necessary service work was completed. All service and installation work was completed on schedule for the client.


Lightning Mobile Electric proved to be a reliable resource for servicing and replacing this pole light for our client.

Overall, properly installed parking lot pole lights contribute to a safer, more secure, and visually appealing environment, benefiting both property owners and those who utilize the parking facility. This results in benefits such as:

Enhanced Visibility and Safety: Adequate lighting in parking lots improves visibility, making it easier for drivers and pedestrians to navigate the area safely. It helps to reduce the risk of accidents, deter crime, and provide a sense of security.

Crime Deterrence:

Well-lit parking lots create a safer environment by deterring criminal activities such as theft, vandalism, and assaults. Criminals are less likely to target well-lit areas due to the increased risk of being seen and identified.

Increased Property Value:

Installing proper lighting in parking lots can increase the overall value of the property. Well-maintained and well-lit parking areas create a positive impression on visitors, customers, and tenants, enhancing the overall appeal of the property.

Energy Efficiency:

Upgrading to energy-efficient lighting technologies such as LED can significantly reduce energy consumption and operating costs. LED lights have a longer lifespan and consume less electricity compared to traditional lighting options.

Compliance with Regulations:

Local regulations may require specific lighting standards to be met, particularly regarding safety and accessibility. By installing properly designed and compliant pole lights, you ensure compliance with these regulations and avoid potential fines or penalties.

Better Customer Experience:

Adequate lighting provides a pleasant and welcoming atmosphere for customers, employees, and visitors. It allows them to easily find their way around the parking lot, locate their vehicles, and feel more secure during nighttime hours.
