Lighting Science Group Wins Bid to Relight Washington, DC with Ultra-Efficient LED Street Lights
Dec 26, 2010 Lighting Science Group’s high-performance PROLIFIC series LED street lights will soon line the streets of Washington, D.C. Compared with traditional high pressure sodium (HPS) street lights, the PROLIFIC LED series street lights are 50% more efficient, provide more uniform light distribution, increase light levels, and will save Washington, D.C. tens of thousands of dollars each year in energy and maintenance costs. The new light fixtures will be paid for from American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds and will begin to be installed in early 2011.
The first of the new lights will be installed in alleys across the District, beginning in Wards 7 and 8. Eventually DDOT plans to install energy-efficient light fixtures throughout the city including all the alleys, streets, bridges, tunnels and underpasses, pedestrian walkways, bike and running trails.
In conjunction with Howard University Transportation Research Center, DDOT conducted a study and analysis of LED lighting products from a variety of vendors and manufacturers. At the conclusion of the Study, DDOT selected Lighting Science Group’s PROLIFIC LSR-2 LED fixture as the preferred choice to replace the District’s existing lights.
