  • Abstract:
    Street lighting improvements provide an opportunity for governments to save money and to reduce their

    environmental footprint. New energy-efficient technologies are being perfected that are more efficient than

    standard high-pressure sodium streetlights. Light-emitting diode (LED) and induction are two types that hold

    promise of saving money while using less energy to reach light standards. Many manufacturers have developed

    energy-efficient lighting products with a variety of performance claims. There has been limited in-field, head-tohead

    testing of these products, particularly in cold weather climates, to help governments choose the most suitable

    product.

    This research project had two aims: (1) compare lighting performance among induction, LED, and standard highpressure

    sodium streetlights, and (2) compare lighting performance among six LED brands/manufacturers and three

    induction brands/manufactures to evaluate consistency by vendor. This research evaluates the LED and induction

    streetlights on several measures: (1) energy consumption, (2) operating costs, (3) maintenance calls, (4) light levels

    and quality, and (5) public reaction/acceptance.
