City of Coimbatore, India Puts LED Technology to Use

Aug 11, 2011 Recent was the advent of sensitive LEDs, which could self-regulate their lighting levels based on the amount of natural daylight already available, and consequently conserving even more energy. Now, a city corporation in India is putting these LEDs to the test as a way to deal with their power conservation issues.

With their current power shortage, the city of Coimbatore, India has been struggling to find a new, efficient, enduring, and low-maintenance source of lighting for sections of the city. Officials have decided to start a trial using LEDs
because the lights are already energy-efficient, though the photo sensor cells they are equipped with will further help save money by automatically turning the lights on an off. The council expects the lights to last for over five years and to spend less on maintenance during that time because the lights will be LEDs.
