LED Street lighting has the potential to save hundreds of thousands of dollars to cities and regional councils. Sydney has saved $300,000 and reduced energy use by more than 25% in the first year of starting to change conventional mercury or sodium vapour lights. Public lighting accounts for one-third of Sydney City’s annual electricity bill and a large part of its greenhouse gas emissions.
Digilight’s energy efficient LED (light-emitting diode) street and park lights are sourced from one of worlds largest manufacturers. They supply organisations with thousands of street lights from Russia, Germany, USA, Canada, Brazil, Thailand, Malaysia, Japan and Australia.
LED lights produce a light that appears brighter than traditional street and park lighting. LED Street Lights are available in a range of wattages and designs to complement traditional or modern styles of street lighting. Digilight provides both the LED unit and the support.
LED lights have the advantage they turn on immediately – unlike conventional vapour lights that take minutes to warm up. Furthermore, they can be supplied dimmable, and can reduce light during full moons, time of night or with IR control can turn down the power used, saving even more money.
