Overdone parking lot lighting

Overdone parking lot lighting

These 1KW HPS shoeboxes are in a parking lot where 400w HPS would have been plenty. They aren't mounted that high and the fixtures are placed quite close to each other. The floodlights are 400w metal halide and light the front of the store, but they don't really need them because the 1kw HPS really overpowers them (mostly from light reflecting off of the ground and spill from the fixtures.) I don't know about anyone else, but overdone installations like this really bother me.

I've seen this done in several retail places, they mainly do it so the parking lot is brightly lit up, and metal halides bring out more colors in what ever they have displayed like flags or signs.. It also makes customer feel safer shopping there after the sun goes down, in retail if it doesn't make them money they wouldn't do and if that light is on for 12 hours a day at 11 cent/ kwh it will cost them about $1500 / year to run it so they have there reasons...
