Pricing ranges for flood lights are extremely broad, from as low as $7 to as high as $5,500 for 2,000 watt stadium lighting. The main indicator of price is the amount of light you need, i.e. the wattage. For example, parking lots, campuses, and sports arenas typically require higher wattage lighting than doorways, storefronts, and signage. A 1,000 watt flood light, such as you’d find in a parking lot, averages between $400 and $500.
Residential needs are even lower; a simple 20-watt halogen flood light costs less than $10 and easily lights up a walkway or sidewalk outside of a home. Even adding a motion sensor and increasing the wattage to 110 only brings the price to around $20.
