  • Daisy chain – numerous units can be connected together from 1 power source
  • 800W LED multi-directional lights – that’s equivalent to 4,000W Metal Halide
  • 120,000 Lumens – 150 lumens/watt

By operating the Beacon Tower on shore power, you save $’s in operations.

In Table 1, we have tabulated the cost per kWH in Australia whereby you can quickly calculate how much it will cost you per shift to operate.
