Energy Saving Street Lighting

Modern street lighting saves significant levels of energy and costs, is able to improve urban safety, enables an appealing atmosphere worth living in, and sustainably reduces CO2 emissions.LED is a highly energy efficient lighting technology, and has the potential to fundamentally change the future of lighting. Widespread use of LED lighting has the greatest potential impact on energy savings. Green Power PK provides a complete portfolio of high-efficiency, intelligent LED solutions for modern, energy-efficient and durable urban lighting.

LED lighting is very different from other lighting sources such as incandescent bulbs and CFLs. Key differences include the following:

Light Source

LEDs are the size of a fleck of pepper, and a mix of red, green, and blue LEDs is typically used to make white light.

Direction

LEDs emit light in a specific direction, reducing the need for reflectors and diffusers that can trap light. This feature makes LEDs more efficient for many uses such as recessed down lights and task lighting. With other types of lighting, the light must be reflected to the desired direction and more than half of the light may never leave the fixture.

Heat

LEDs emit very little heat. In comparison, incandescent bulbs release 90% of their energy as heat and CFLs release about 80% of their energy as heat.
