Decorative LED Street Lighting is Changing the Way Life is Seen at Night
Over the past 5 years, the growth of the LED industry has been nothing short of spectacular. LEDs – once a virtually unknown technology – are now in a position to dominate the lighting market as a sustainable, cost-effective, and long-term solution. Many experts now argue that LEDs are poised to become the premier lighting choice for both residential and commercial applications. The technology’s leap from obscure “green” solution to mainstream alternative has created challenges and opportunities for municipalities and businesses alike.
How fast is the LED revolution moving?
According to recent reports, the use of LED in the global market is expected to reach 31% in 2015. LED light poles are being used in cities around the country to cut energy costs and improve lighting in parks and streets. New York City recently installed almost 1,600 luminaires in Central Park. The city expects the installation to cut energy expenditure by as much as 62% and save $30,000 in yearly maintenance.
State DOTs (Departments of Transportation) are also using LED roadway lighting as a cost-effective, long-term solution for highways and interstates. The lights are durable, and they come in a variety of configurations, making them the perfect application for government light use. Urban residents may also notice a marked increase in LED lights in shops this holiday season as well as in sports arenas.
