LED street lighting for the city of Raleigh

BetaLED : 03 November, 2008  (Application Story)
Low energy, high lifetime street lighting to replace older equipment on the streets of Raleigh
LED street lighting for the city of Raleigh
BetaLED's revolutionary LEDway streetlights are part of a pilot program with the City of Raleigh in partnership with Progress Energy that expands energy-efficient technology to customers and communities.

As part of the program, nine LEDway streetlights replaced older, less efficient fixtures in downtown Raleigh. The installation is another step in Raleigh's "LED City" initiative, a joint government/industry effort to evaluate, deploy and promote municipal light emitting diode (LED) lighting technology.

"I am very excited that Progress Energy is moving forward with LED streetlights," said Raleigh Mayor Charles Meeker. "This is good for everyone - it [LED technology] reduces maintenance costs, it reduces energy usage, it produces clearer light."

The test program allows Progress Energy, the city of Raleigh and industry partners to test LED street lighting in a realistic environment subject to the actual daily conditions under which these lights typically operate.

LEDway luminaires use 40 to 60 percent less energy than traditional streetlight sources such as high-pressure sodium (HPS). LEDway also offers more than 100,000 hours of delivered lumens, extending the life of the fixture to more than 23 years - four times longer than HPS with no maintenance costs.

LEDway's highly efficient thermal management design is the foundation for a long-life fixture while the superior optical design provides unparalleled light control and uniformity.

Unlike lamps in traditional streetlights, there is no mercury in the LEDway fixture or used in its production. Additional environmental benefits of LEDway include Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) compliance, less disposal waste due to the fixtures' extended life and Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA) full cutoff classification for optical control.

BetaLED introduced THE EDGE family of products to commercial and industrial applications within the lighting industry in 2007. The LEDway family was introduced to provide products engineered specifically for municipal streetlight applications.
