LED Street Lights.
As we move into the age of LED, streetlights have come under the spotlight as well. Traditionally the place of Sodium , Metal Halide and Mercury Vapour – these formats have dominated this area of lighting for the last few decades.
When LED was introduced, the creators of the technology began to look at whether this could be applied to street lighting. Initially , the light projection factor of LED was a problem , with LED being highly visible , but not able to PROJECT light to the degree that was required to render effective public lighting.
Now, with the advances in LED lighting, LED Street Lights are becoming more interesting to councils and government departments looking to reduce their energy costs , while maintaining lighting levels.
LED Street Lights – Output Info.
Consider this like the LED floodlights, LED Street Lights can now offer similar light output levels that compete with the traditional versions and this has now made them viable as an energy saving alternative to standard street lights. Many countries around the world have switched over to LED Streetlights and have seen superb results in both energy saving , maintenance and light levels.
This fitting for example , has a light output of 3200-3600 lumens and work very well in applications at this light level , while saving around 30% – 40% of the energy requirements.
As LED Street Light demand grows higher, these innovations will continue to produce higher quality , higher lumen output lights. The goal here is to provide lighting that matches the current lighting levels in whichever environment it is required , but using substantially less energy to do so .
Using this type of lighting product as a part of your energy saving strategy for business will reduce operational costs over the medium and long term – while the initial investment may be higher, the return over them medium and long term is where the real results show themselves.
