Four Countries' Practical Use of Outdoor LEDs

Aug 4, 2011 The use of LEDs continues to spread as cities in China, Canada, the UK, and the US recognize their energy efficiency.

LED Roadway Lighting is now in charge of lighting the city of Edmonton (Canada) with 2580 Satellite series LED luminaries, which are expected to save 16,000,000 kWh. LEDs are also involved in Shenzhen, China, providing the SSL luminaries for lighting a 120-km stretch of highway. Las Vegas has also started a project replacing old streetlights with LED fixtures. It is expected to save $400,000 each year in energy spendings. Bristol, UK has also begun to utilize LEDs at its busy Hicks Gate roundabout between Bath and Bristol. Involved officials from the Somerset Council noted this use of LED technology would save money spent on energy and maintenance, as well as maintaining the integrity of the "light quality and driver safety".

These outdoor LEDs are expected to save money and energy in all four countries' projects.
