City of Chicago Testing PolyBrite International’s New Borealis LED Streetlights

Aug 3, 2010 PolyBrite International, Inc., developer of the Borealis brand Light Emitting Diode (LED) Lighting Systems, announced that the City of Chicago has installed new Borealis LED streetlights as part of a test pilot program.

Borealis LED streetlights have been installed and will be monitored for three months on the block of 4800 W. Parker Avenue in Chicago, IL. The city will be testing the LED streetlights for high color rendition to assure adequate vision, and greater control of light dispersion and energy savings.

Currently, most of the city’s streets are illuminated with High Pressure Sodium (HPS) streetlights, but they have a very low color rendition, hindering visibility at night.Borealis LED streetlights have a lifetime, up to 50,000 hours,  a very high color rendition and produce a sharp, pure color without glare. They feature an instant “on” with no cold starting compared to HPS street lights.

Motion sensors and lighting controls can also be used with Borealis LED lighting since they can be turned on and off instantly. Furthermore, Borealis LED streetlights are better equipped to withstand extreme hot and cold temperatures.
