LED Lighting for Municipalities
NuEnergy Technologies provides LED solutions to municipalities including complete feasibility studies and cost savings analysis designed to:
– Reduce maintenance costs.
– Protect the environment.
– Improve light quality for improved visibility and safety.
– Save tax dollars.
Cities are reporting energy savings of 50 to 80 percent depending on application and maintenance cost savings, which reach into six figures over the fixture lifetime. LEDs present a dramatically enhanced lighting option to save energy and maintenance costs as well as eliminates the hazardous-waste issues associated with mercury-containing light bulbs and tubes.
Light emitting diodes (LEDs) are solid-state lighting components. They have no moving, fragile parts and can last for decades. LEDs can be many times more energy-efficient than light bulbs, depending on the application. Today, LED light is revolutionizing the lighting world. Fixture manufacturers are making LED-based products for outdoor street, walkway, parking and indoor down light applications
Twenty percent of the world’s electricity is used for lighting. Ninety percent of the power used by a light bulb produces heat, not light. LEDs are more than four times more efficient than incandescent bulbs. And, they are more efficient than compact fluorescents (CFLs), the next most efficient light source available today. CFLs contain mercury, making them hazardous waste when they break or burn out. Glass bulbs with filaments and glass tubes break – easily and often. Solid-state technology offers far more durability and much longer life times. LED fixtures can last 10-25 years, which can significantly reduce maintenance costs and impact on the environment.
